Czech Chick
About this Cook
I am a mom of two and a wife of one :-) My whole family loves to eat. So I cook every day and I am loving it.
My favorite things to cook
Because my kids are still small, I make traditional Czech recipes that are very kid friendly, filling, healthy and give them the right energy the little tummies need. When the neighbor's kids are over, they all love to eat my "omacky".
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family traditions are baking hundreds of Czech Christmas cookies before Christmas time comes and the traditional "Vanocka" is never missing on our holiday table. In Czech, we also have "Posviceni" at the end of summer season, so traditional "Kolace" are always made and shared with neighbors (who of course cannot get enough of them). Other than that, during the whole year I love to cook and bake for any special occasion.
My cooking triumphs
Cooking, baking and canning fruits, pickles and making jams since the age of 16.
My cooking tragedies
There has never been room for any tragedies, since I was raised to cook successfully :-) (Yeah, right!) Occasionally burned rice, other than that, no big cooking tragedies to report as of right now.

Prosciutto-Wrapped Cherry-Stuffed Chicken Breasts
Oh my oh my! Chef John has done it again. Excellence in taste and texture. Everybody enjoyed it, even our 6 and 10 year olds. (Great to make ahead and bake when the guests arrive!)
