Posting a secret family recipe for the world to know?  Who does that?  Who cares.....So glad they did.  YUM *doing happy dance while chewing a meatball*.  In my work for eradicating the faceless recipes on AR.  I came upon this.  Eh, I've made millions of meatballs.  What is another one? … MORE

About this Cook
I am a Family and Consumer Science teacher (that's Home Ec for the folks who aren't aware we've changed our name.) I have been teaching for over 24 years, absolutely LOVE what I do every day, especially if it's a food demonstration. My students always tell me I need to start my own cooking show...Anyone looking for a new celebrity chef?...LOL.
My favorite things to cook
Baking. anything baked. Breads, cookies, cakes...
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up with many Polish dishes over the holidays. Pierogis filled with cheese or sauerkraut or blueberries...we couldn't get enough since we only got them twice a year during Christmas or New Year's.
My cooking triumphs
I guess when you cook as much as I do, you don't think of them as triumphs...more like KEEPERS. I have gone through many ways of organizing my recipes. Just a notebook of my favorites seem to work best.
My cooking tragedies
In any cook's life a little "souffle will fall." I never let failure get me down. If anything it motivates me to try it again until I get it right. I think I had to make popover over 10 times with different recipes to finally to get them to POP!

Kick'N Chicken with Mango Salsa
We were about to get pounded by some snow and I jumped to get on the grill to make this recipe. Great flavor and perfect salsa!

Pork Carnitas with Cilantro Tomatillo Sauce
I followed the spices in recipe exactly however I would cut off some of the fat from the shoulder after I cubed it. A lot of fat rendered from it. When it was done I did stir in some more peppers and onions. We want more veggies in our life. Be sure to heat up the corn tortillas in the microwave. It really makes a difference. I'd make this again.

Empanadas (Beef Turnovers)
I tried this recipe basically to give the empanada dough a try. I did not add alot of the seasoning because it was just too much salt. I used the Adobo only and I BAKED them instead of submerging them in all that oil. They were crispy with just a swipe of olive oil and were awesome.
