About this Cook
I took 3 years of professional cooking, and was going to school to become a world class chef, but decided on a career change after seeing the long hours and insanity that seems to occur when you run a kitchen. Now i am just a very skilled amatuer. I LOVE watching Iron Chef and anything else on food network!!
My favorite things to cook
I love trying new things, but seem to gravitate towards italian/greek dishes. I also enjoy making appetizers for parties. Update - 2011: I have now been doing a lot of asian and indian dishes
My favorite family cooking traditions
My background is Ukranian, so i love my carbs! We make home made perogies, cabbage rolls throughout the year. As well, Xmas and food go hand in hand, and my family enjoys making tons of goodies for the occasion
My cooking triumphs
my secret perogie recipe, my grandma didnt ever have this written down, it was all in her head, and she didnt ever use measurements, so when I got it from her, I had to figure out what a handful equals in real measurements *L*
My cooking tragedies
none to speak of lately, though for a long time, i couldnt make Jell-o.... I hate using measuring cups, and for that you have to!! once or twice I have made cookies and forgotten flour, or baking soda... hahaha....

Chef John's Monte Cristo Benedict
We love Monte Cristo's and eggs Benny but this recipe wasn't all I thought it should have been.

Italian Meatball Sandwich Casserole
We liked it but this won't make it into the regular rotation due to the fat and calories. I used turkey meatballs and subbed the mayo for low fat ricotta.

Slow Cooker Stuffing
I made this last Thanksgiving and my family decided that I am in charge of dressing anytime we have a turkey. I love that it frees up the oven. I change it up a bit every time - toasted pine nuts, diced apple, bacon, dried cranberries... This is a basic recipe that can be easily customized. I do recommend using the tea towel under the lid of the slow cooker to keep the dressing from getting soggy. Try it - you won't regret it
