About this Cook
I'm a mom of 2 great kids and a nursing student but somehow I still find time to make and sell handmade soap and cook almost every night. I like to stay busy I guess.
My favorite things to cook
Casseroles and desserts
My favorite family cooking traditions
Anything Serbian, my grandma taught me how to cook Serbian food and she is the best around. She is way better at it than I...

My cooking tragedies
My first dinner party ever where nothing I made turned out right and I still don't know where I went wrong that day..but it was bad. I ended up ordering a bunch of pizza at the last minute.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts
I have been making these for a long time. My whole family- kids included- devour them. Even friends who don't like them will eat these. First, this is a great recipe to tweak and make your own though you don't have to- we all have our cooking styles. Feel free, to put on more spices, we love seasoned salt and garlic powder. I also roast garlic in with the sprouts. The main thing, I feel it helps for bitterness, blanch your fresh sprouts in whatever broth you prefer, for about 5 minutes before you roast. I have never had a bitter or mushy sprout with this recipe, I bake for about 30 minutes. So easy , good for you and delicious. Don't try this recipe with frozen sprouts unless you decrease the cook time. Frozen sprouts are almost always mushy. Thanks for sharing- we love it!

Lentil Soup
We enjoyed this very much. I didn't presoak my lentils at all. The only thing was that for me, this turned out like more of a stew than a soup. It could have been something I did though I followed the directions. It was still really good and awesome for my husbands diet. We did top it with frozen yogurt and green onions. Thanks for sharing.

Quinoa Black Bean Burgers
My hubby is on a brutal diet for his health so I added these to his rotation. I also enjoyed these but I love black beans. The only thing I changed was (like some other posters) adding Oatmeal to hold it all together instead of the bread crumbs. I baked these but I could have grilled or fried, they held together very well after refrigerating them for a couple of hours. These were not dry nor tasteless, they were really tasty and we will make them again for sure. Thank you for sharing!
