About this Cook
Mommy of two cooking from scratch 00ag00 while managing toddler ad5555 drama... oh and receiving unrequested assistance while typing. See above.
My favorite things to cook
Pasta, cakes (among other desserts)and soups. My goals are to cook from scratch whenever possible to avoid putting unncessary preservatives, etc in our bodies. I also try to create well balanced meals. Eat healthy!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from a family of remarkable cooks. My mother used to cook (refuses anymore)German and Slavik dishes. Including an amazing homemade vegetable soup. My grandfather & grandmother enjoyed cooking as well. Grandpa was family wide famous for the most finicky but amazing fudge ever tasted EVER.
My cooking triumphs
Hmmm anything the kids eat is considered the ULTIMATE success.
My cooking tragedies
Trying to make my Grandpas fudge and having it seize up in the bottom of the pan... may as well toss the pan! I think I actually did.

Tomato Basil Penne Pasta
Very good! I did have to substitute the jack cheese. I'm feeding tots & I didn't have any. I used feta! It was great! The only other thing I did different was sauté some diced red onion with the garlic. And because I didn't have basil oil I used extra olive oil & added fresh basil & 1/2 tsp of prepared pesto.

Basic Buttermilk Muffins
I made these and used whole wheat pastry flour instead of all purpose. Perhaps that's why they came out strange. Not sure. They made beautiful muffins but the flavor left me wanting... Something. For me they were just okay.

Good for You Greek Salad
This is excellent the day you make it, but eat it all because it doesn't keep well. The cucumbers get soft fast.
