About this Cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
Getting together with extended family and making pierogi-a Polish dumpling filled with savory fillings. I also love to make Povitica, an eastern European nut bread, kolache's, a filled pastry, and any kind of pastry. The povitica reminds me of my Polish grandmother, the kolache reminds me of a sister. My family also loves BBQ, so smoking meat is another enjoyable pastime.
My cooking triumphs
I haven't triumphed yet, but am planning a spring wedding and will be preparing all the smoked meat for almost 300 people, and will be baking about 30 loaves of povitica, as well as the rest of the meal offerings. Wish me well! :-)

Easy Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
I couldn't find tahini at my store and maybe it would have had a 5 star review with it, but as it is, I had to sub the tahini with 1 TBSP peanut butter and 1/4 c. sesame oil; I reduced the lemon juice as per other reviews and the end product was good. I come short of saying "Great" but if I could find the tahini it might be that. Thank for for the recipe.

Feta Chicken Salad
I took this recipe and changed the servings to 50 for a Bridal shower. The new measurements called for 2 whole onions and I added 3/4 of one medium onion and it was oniony enough; With that in mind, I advise everyone to watch the measurement of onion this recipe calls for and go easy. You can always add more if you want more but you can't take away... With all that, it was still a really good chicken salad and everyone at the shower loved it. It's a keeper recipe!

Old Fashioned Tea Cakes II
They were good with our tea. Sort of like a shortbread. They did take a little longer than 8 minutes-closer to 10.
