About Me
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!
