About this Cook
I guess you can say I just love to cook. Since I can remember, I have always helped out in the kitchen. Being from a big family, family gatherings have always centered around great food.
My favorite things to cook
I really don't have a favorite thing I like to cook, but I do have several recipes I will make when I want to impress.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Grandmother Maria's Pierogi
My cooking triumphs
My cooking triumph would have to be the time I made Coq au Vin for my friend Frederique. Being from France and a really picky eater to boot, she thought it was great and tasted like the authentic French classic dish.
My cooking tragedies
Sometimes the simplest, tried 'n true recipes shouldn't be messed with. I once tried to make a fancy gourmet meatloaf recipe for my ex-boyfriend. Not only was it a new recipe, but I also thought I would be even more creative and add a few extra things... Ut-oh! The results where a mushy on the inside, bland, and burnt on the outside lump of "stuff" we couldn't eat! lol

Buffalo Chicken Dip
Such an easy, quick appetizer to make, and it's always a crowd-pleaser. I make this recipe as it is written, but also add about 1/2 cup of blue cheese crumbles to the mixture - try it out, it's a great addition! :)

Irish Cream Bundt Cake
I've made this cake at least a dozen times since I first saw the recipe on Allrecipes a couple years ago. Wherever I take this cake, I always get asked for the recipe and there are never any leftovers! This cake is super moist and very easy to make - love it! :)

Cranberry Pumpkin Bread
I made this bread for my Mother over the holidays, and she LOVED it! The cranberry and pumpkin really go well together. Plus, it was very moist. I will definitely make this recipe again - thanks! :)
