About this Cook
56 y.o. lives in the desert of S. CA. We have 4 dogs, 11 cats, 1 corn snake, 1 water turtle, 1 Senegal parrot. Kids that aren't ours live with us all the time. We haven't had an empty house in 34 years.
My favorite things to cook
Anything Mexican and Chinese. I'm always looking for new and wonderful dessert recipes as well. I am a food addict, so I guess I'd actually cook anything if I wanted to eat it badly enough, lol!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
We always have Swedish meatballs for Christmas eve since I was a kid. I still make them - they're my Nana's recipe and they are awesome!
My cooking triumphs
I learned how to make tamales a few years ago. Considering how difficult I thought they were, I was surprised to find that they're just time consuming, but not particularly difficult to make :-)
My cooking tragedies
I once served a partially uncooked turkey for Thanksgiving. We stuck it back in the oven but the meal was ruined. By the time the turkey was finally done, the side dishes had gone cold and yukky. I cried for an hour!

Pork Chalupas
Great dish! We loved it :) I add guacamole to give it some additional flavor.

Indian Chicken Curry II
This curry is extremely easy to make and it is delicious! We add a little pinch of cayenne pepper to spice it up for the members of our family who like a little heat.
