First time blogging, first recipe ever saved to “my recipe box.”  I still remember sitting down at the computer one day just to kill a little time.  I thought I’d check in on allrecipes and see what was new.  When the home page opened—There It Was!  Filipino Lumpia was the… MORE

About this Cook
What can I say, I love food. It's just hubby and me, but I still do a lot of cooking just for the two of us. We eat a variety of different foods that are all over the spectrum. Most of the time we eat healthy, but still make room for those not-so-healthy dishes.
My favorite things to cook
Meals that are bursting with different flavors, textures, and color.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother was Czech and it wouldn't be X-mas without her famous poppy seed kolaches. That torch has now passed to me since I have her well-guarded recipe.
My cooking triumphs
After many, many years of trials and tribulations, I finally mastered the art of chocolate. I make my very own candy shop style truffles, English toffee, caramels, etc. Maybe someday I will make a business out of it, but for now you have to be on my X-mas list.
My cooking tragedies
I’m quite certain I’ve had my share of tragedies if you consider a cake that falls, breads that won’t raise, candy that won’t set, or a burnt burger on the grill. Hey, it happens!

Skillet Chicken Bulgogi
I've been making this every since the recipe was published. It's so easy to toss together for a last minute meal idea. No changes necessary. It's perfect! Bulgogi means thinly sliced meat. I like mine cut to the point that it's almost shaved. Toss in a hot skillet and it's done in under 5 minutes. To serve, we like it best over sesame noodles or even a plain Ramen style noodle. Add a mix of stir-fried veggies like broccoli, carrots, and cabbage and you have a complete all-in-one meal.

Best Blueberry Buckle
When it comes to coffee cakes, I am the pickiest person in the world. I am all about the texture. Many years ago, I tried a blueberry buckle that won grand prize at a 4-H Fair. It was to die for! Unfortunately, I never got the recipe. I’ve tried many blueberry buckles and coffeecakes over the years and all disappointing. It is with great pride when I say this recipe is a WINNER! It’s dense, it’s moist, and it’s flavorful. Perfect with a fresh cup of coffee. The recipe did not state pan size, but it says 8 servings so I used an 8” pan. It took 10 – 15 min. longer to bake, but other factors may have contributed to that. I didn’t want to make a special trip to the store for fresh blueberries, so I used a 12oz package of partially thawed, frozen blueberries. So much for the 8 servings. Hubby and I completely devoured this a single day, scraping every single crumb from the pan. Thank you ,Cristina, for sharing your amazing recipe!

Lettuce Leaf Tacos
It's really hard to rate a taco that uses a basic taco filling. I mean a taco is a taco. For creativity, I give it 5 stars. The shape of the romaine leaf, along with its sturdiness makes a perfect substitute for the carb watchers that don't want a tortilla shell. I'm not sure why the peppers and onions are sauteed and served as a topping other than to please a picky eater. I'd much rather save a step and cook them in with the meat.
