I have always been a baker since I started making cookies and cakes when I was 14 years old. But I had to cut back on so many cookies, cakes and breads because they're a little too calorific for me to be eating all the time. Since I am engaged, I have begun to learn how to cook real food. My fiance is from Mexico and very macho so I will be doing all of the cooking and am therefore trying all sorts of new recipes. I am learning from his family as well. I would recomend listening to my recipes for more authentic Mexican food as many of the recipes that I have found on here are not Mexican in my opinion, being 5 miles from the U.S./Mexican border.
My favorite things to cook
aguas frescas, enchiladas, tostadas, rice and beans
My favorite family cooking traditions
tamales on Christmas Eve
