About this Cook
I grew up in a Bohemian family that loved to eat. So naturally I love to eat too! I enjoy nothing more than to have a whole afternoon to create some new dishes to prepare a special meal.
My favorite things to cook
I like to grill just about anything. Also like to cook Mexican and Thai. My favorite things to cook are whatever my family has a taste for!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love getting together with my family. All gatherings are planned around some sort of meal. The family favorites are the best....Cream Chicken and Homemade Dumplings, Roast leg of lamb, Boiled Fruit dumplings (sounds gross but it's fabulouse - butter and cinnamon sugar over the top!). At Christmas we make Czeck kolacky cookies, and about a dozen other Bohemian favorites. On Christmas morning my mom always makes a Hoska bread.
My cooking triumphs
Can't think of anything significant right now.
My cooking tragedies
When I was in high school, I tried making stir fry for my "boyfriend" at the time. I bought stew meat instead of a good, tender cut and we couldn't even chew the dinner! I was so embarrassed!

Chocolate Truffle Cookies
This is definitely a chocolate-lover's cookie! It's 5-stars as is. I've also added bittersweet chocolate in place of the semi-sweet or in half and half proportions. Tastes great with a demitasse coffee or a nice wine, as it's not too sweet. LOVE THEM!
