About this Cook
I'm happily connected to Michael since 2000, love my kids-in-law, have an almost 1-year-old grandson who is the light of my life! I'm a legal secretary. I love trying new recipes and I get bored making the same stuff all the time.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make scalloped potatoes & meat loaf - nothing fancy, but a great comfort meal! I'm also known for my cheesy potatoes and cream-filled cupcakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I used to help my grandmother make stuffed cabbages and bread, pies, angel wings and donuts. I'm sorry I didn't write down her recipes as we made them, but I was a teenager then and I thought I (and she) had forever!
My cooking triumphs
I've been pulling off Christmas Eve dinner for my family for about 20 years now. We have turkey, ham, kielbasa, mashed potatoes, cheesy potatoes, various veggies, and a bunch of pies! While I was married, I even cooked Christmas dinner the next day for the other side of the family - I did that for about 6-8 years (and I was a lot younger then)!!!!
My cooking tragedies
Speaking of the aforementioned turkey, I cooked the giblets bag inside the turkey one year. I also tried some kind of potato-squash bake casserole that sounded yummy but ended up being a pizza night!

Chicken Cordon Bleu I
Oh yum! I always read reviews before I cook and between the original recipe and suggestions in the reviews this was wonderful! I used Egg Beaters to wash the chicken after I rolled it up (I butterflied one breast and pounded the other) and used Polish deli ham (I agree that regular ham would taste better) AND made the sauce. With rice and broccoli this was a fabulous meal! Keeping this one in the rotation for sure!

Gina's Crab Stuffed Chicken Breast
Yum is right! I only made one serving and had a bit too much crab (leftover from crab leg dinner) and I stink at flattening chicken breasts so it was sloppy - but the taste was fantastic! The only thing I changed was to add an ice cube's worth of lemon juice to the sauce, because I didn't have any dry wine. I really wanted to take a picture before I ate but it smelled too good and I had to dive right in! Good one Gina!

Chicken Breast Stuffed with Spinach Blue Cheese and Bacon
I read the reviews and added mayo to the spinach mix, along with onion & garlic sauteed in the bacon grease. I only mixed one bacon slice in the spinach and used two slices to wrap the breast in. I'll make it healthier next time and forget the bacon wrap, but I will keep this recipe for future reference! Very good!
