About this Cook
Have always loved cooking and especially baking for the past 30+ years. This was just natural for me since I come from a family of great cooks, but, I continue to love trying new recipes. My inspiration growing up was my grandmother & her spirit continues to inspire me.
My favorite things to cook
Homeade Bread
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking pastries, cookies and rolls at christmas, many passed down from my Polish grandmother.
My cooking triumphs
Breads and the best ever chocolate cake.
My cooking tragedies
The first loaf of bread I ever made was so heavy and inedible. After breaking it up for the outside birds, even they left it untouched.

Taco Salad III
Excellent recipe... been using one very much the same since my grandmother brought it back from southern Ca. in the 80's.... try using a little less catalina and mix some sour cream and taco sauce with the dressing you do use for a delightfully different tasting dressing. Sometimes I add 2 pkgs of taco seasoning to the meat, unless of course, you are watching salt intake. Thanks for sharing a great recipe Melanie.
