About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Since moving to New Mexico I have enjoyed learning to prepare authentic new mexican food (very different from mexican)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom's Shredded Green Chili Chicken. Great for any mexican dish.
My cooking triumphs
Hosting my first solo Thanksgiving dinner in 2004!
My cooking tragedies
Making a simple dish of Chicken and rice for my new husband in 2003. What a disaster, my first time baking in high altitude. :)

Panzanella Salad
This Recipe is incredible. I used cherry tomatoes and halfed them. I also used less olive oil in the dressing. I found a mozzerella wrapped in proccutto that I cut in to small chunks I also added quite a bit of baby spinach just to make it healthier. Yummy!!!!!!!

Crispy Orange Beef
Yummy! Although I wish there was an easier way to coat and fry the beef. What a mess! and time consuming.
