About this Cook
Mother of 7yr old and 21 yr old girls. Recently became a grandmother :) Married and have a small farm of horses and love my pyrenees dogs. I am a stay at home mom, and my oldest and beautiful granddaughter live with me as well. I love quilting, sewing, crafts, gardening and yard work, riding my horses, fishing, and of course cooking. My hobby and work-at-home is taking older cabinets/desks/hutches etc and painting or refinishing them and adding antique hardware. It's relaxing and rewarding. I do this together with my oldest daughter and we let our creativity flow. I am blessed to have such a wonderful family and life. Our home is in an area of 1000 lakes in 100 kms radius. Beautiful British Columbia!
My favorite things to cook
Love Ukranian cooking, baking, and anything crock pot. Comfort food is my love! Enjoy healthy cooking as much as possible, and enjoy make things from scratch. Currently am teaching my girls how to shop and cook thriftly. Loving every minute of it. I enjoy canning home grown vegies, fruit, pickles, and jams
My favorite family cooking traditions
Of course turkey dinner, sunday pot roasts, anything that sends an aroma through our house all day. Love to 'tweak' recipes. My grandmother's recipes are precious to me. My ukranian cooking was taught to me by the best, my ex mother in law. Who doesnt love authentic Ukranian food?
My cooking triumphs
Homemade chicken or turkey pot pie. My family will do anything for it. I think anything my family likes is a triumph. Pot roast with yorkshire puddings, ham and scalloped potatoes, and anything grilled.
My cooking tragedies
Pea soup! Who knew it could turn out that neon green. Tasted like toxic waste too. I was 20 yrs old at the time, and still cant live it down.

Best Bread Machine Bread
I have been using this recipe 4 times a week for over a year now. Amazing results and I am never dissappointed. Throw out the recipe that came with your bread maker! I make this on a dough setting, quickly knead the dough in my hands, throw into greased pan, let rise for about 40 minutes in slightly warmish oven,then bake at 350 for half hour or so. The possibilities are endless for cheese bread, raisin bread, etc. At first it seemed too easy and I was reluctant, but I am glad I tried it. By baking it in the oven the house smells divine and you choose your crust color. Thank you for a great recipe!

Baked Teriyaki Chicken
I have made this recipe 4 times now. The only thing I omit is the ginger and I do double the sauce recipe. Quick trick, don't cook the sauce in a pot, make your sauce and pour over chicken arranged in the pan, about an hour before cooking. I put my thighs skin side up until ready to turn on the oven (maximum 390f). When I turn on my oven I turn the chicken skin side down for half hour of cooking time, then flip to skin side up for last half hour. That way the tops get a nice glaze to them and the meat absorbs the flavor. The house smells amazing and the chicken looks professional. We love this recipe and use it on pork, chicken and meat balls to be served with rice. Yummy thank you! Clean up is easy as this is a sugar based recipe, occassionally I will line my pan with parchment paper but it's not really needed. Tin foil rips off when serving because the sugar is sticky and glazed, and ultimately makes a bigger mess. Soapy hot water cleanup is all you need.

German Apple Cake I
MMM MMM MMM I have tried this recipe with less sugar, less oil, without any modifications, made it a total of 7 times now. This is an amazing recipe good for novice or pro. Lori F. who said it burned on the outside and mushy on the inside, perhaps check your ovens temp. This is a no fail recipe. Absolute wonderful comfort food. Once in a while I do add a struesel topping, but would not recommend icing it. Perfect with a cup of coffee, for brunch or as a pot luck. Thank you Barbara for a wonderful staple in our home.
