About this Cook
I am a wife, mother, business owner, and my way of saying good bye to a stressfull day is to cook something, try new things in the kitchen and successfully please about seven different people for dinner at any one given point in time. It is challenging, but I like it.
My favorite things to cook
Unless it's baking which I'm really not into, I like to cook anything really. When I see satisfaction from my 2 year old up to my husband I know that someday I'll be able to make a cook book for my kids that will hopefully help them when they have to do it for themselves.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I really don't think I have any yet. I always do the Christmas dinner.
My cooking triumphs
Cooking in general. When I started about 8 years ago, I didn't even think it would become such an essential, yet enjoyable part of my life. I used to dread it - although I could burn water at that point in time too.
My cooking tragedies
I'm not very great with shrimp yet. My tragedies are varied because I like to try new recipe's so often. I try to make things that my husband may not care for, and turn it into something that he would want to eat if I made it again. Sometimes this is not successful. He doesn't like anything with red sauce so he can be difficult. I think he is my cooking tragedy - ha ha! That and I have the uncanny ability to catch things on fire. I'm a lot of fun in the kitchen - or at least to watch.

Mijo's Slow Cooker Shredded Beef
This was a very flavorful dish and reminded me of the meat I get when we go to Chipotles. So if you like that - this was excellant. To go even further with this dish next time I think I will add a chipotle with some adobe sauce from the can.

Tacos De Matamoros
This makes the best taco meat ever. My Family loves it as I have searched for just the perfect authentic recipe forever. I think by cooking the meat for so long makes the texture and flavor combination perfect. The flavors are that of Abuelos restaurant. Great!!!

Fried Okra
I love fried okra. But this wasn't the most "adhearing" coating for me and a little to grainy with the cornmeal and all. A little goes along way in terms of the cornmeal, there just needed to be more of a substance to it. I have since then created a very excellent rendition inspired by this recipe - so thank you very much because I wouldn't have attempted it otherwise.
