OK here is part 2 of the Sandwich Blog: You already have your sandwich all ready to go, so you have to start carefully rolling it up starting from the bottom (bottom being where you placed your last piece of ham). Roll in the direction of where you overlaped the ham so that you are lifting… MORE

About this Cook
Newly 30 and still on AR!!! I can't believe I've been a member since 2007! I've learned a lot in the last 7 years! (Mostly through failure!)
My favorite things to cook
Anything that makes them come back for a second helping!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is originally from Poland and my grandma lives with my parents. We always make pierogi, cabbage rolls, and other traditional dishes.
My cooking triumphs
Annual Thanksgiving for friends. It started with 12 people the first year. 2013 was my 7th, I hosted 70 (and ran out of plates.)
My cooking tragedies
Although I have make cheesecake plenty of times before, I tried to make it using mini muffin pans. I don't know what I did wrong but they all burnt! I did once make meatballs and left them in the slow cooker over night (I have done this numerous times). However, this time I put it on the low setting instead of the warm setting. Not fun to clean! I also added peppermint to a dark chocolate sauce instead of vanilla. It was like drinking choc milk and Altoids at the same time. I also melt spatulas and kitchen timers like its my job. Last but not least...spilling melted cheese on my hand/wrist....since the last update, nothing as horrific as the cheese incident that left me with a scar that resembles a wristlet when I'm tan (the scar part stays white and I get tan)...BUT I did let pasta sauce boil over on the stove top (in the new house) and it went between the 2 glass panels so I had to take the oven apart to clean it!

Banana Cream Pie III
Quick recipe. Good taste but next time I'd use real whipping cream instead of Cool Whip which gives recipes a generic taste, in my opinion.

Habanero Hellfire Chili
Great recipe! It's got some good kick to it. The only thing I changed was upping the spices to my personal tastes and adding an entire onion. Thanks for the recipe. We'll be having this one again.
