I love to experiment and try out new recipes all the time. I'm very grateful for a husband who is willing to try new things. I just recently had my second baby, and I'm trying to eat healthier food (in addition to exercise), not only so I can lose my baby weight, but so I can BE healthier in general. It's not such an easy thing when almost everything I like to eat is bad for me! :)
My favorite things to cook
Mexican and Italian...the more authentic, the better! I love making ethnic recipes; I'll make anything but seafood. I usually end up substituting chicken for whatever meat is called for because we LOVE it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom wasn't and isn't that into cooking, so I didn't get into it until about a year and a half ago, on my own.
My cooking triumphs
Brooklyn Girl's Penne Arrabiata turned out great!!! I'm proud of that one, even though it took a while to make.
My cooking tragedies
Sometimes my love of spice (as in hot, hot) comes back to kick me in the butt. :)
