About this Cook
Single mother of one great teenager. I love to cook. I believe my love for cooking stemmed from my mothers lack of cooking ability and my grandmothers absolutely wonderful authentic russian cooking. I am Russian and Puertorican so my food taste varies. In fact, I pretty much love almost every food and am very open to trying new foods.
My favorite things to cook
Gandule (red rice) Rice, potato salad, meatloaf, homemade bread, borscht, beer butt chicken.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Gandule rice, borscht, Ikra, Meatballs and mashed potatoes.
My cooking triumphs
Any meal that makes my son say "Mom that was really good." Could you honestly hear better words?
My cooking tragedies I'll go buy an ice cream cake before I'll try to make another one.

Special Turkey Gravy
I found that you really need to follow these directions and make sure the Roux gets really golden. Everything is spot on. Made a great gravt, but I did add more flour to thicken it up more.

Yummy Tater Tot Casserole
This is a great basic recipe that you can easily tweak to your own tastes. I recommend, as a lot of people did that you reduce the amount of butter to a couple tablespoons otherwise it gets soggy. Also use a high quality sour cream, so that its not watered down. I tried it originally as written. The second time, I reduced the butter and added garlic. Instead of a regular onion, I tried green onions and did not saute' them and added two cloves of garlic. Just mixed everything together. And I used Ritz crackers instead of chips. It was really delicious. My next time I'm going to go back to the regular onion and try adding ortega chilis. Thank you Jana!
