I'm 28, I have three children, ages 9, 4, 2, plus one on the way--all girls! I love to cook, I like trying out new things or manipulating a basic recipe to fit my family's tastes. I hope to one day be considered...someone people can come to for a few great recipes!
My favorite things to cook
I LOVE baking, which is probably bad, I'm going to turn into a cow or something! But really, I like cooking anything, I'm willing to try anything, and if it's good, I'll keep it!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking with the girls...it's so much fun (and sooo messy!) to let the girls use their imagination and decorate cookies or mix batters...and they feel so proud, which makes me smile.
My cooking triumphs
Everyone (so far) likes my desserts. For the holidays, I almost always make cookies, fudge...I've done sweet breads too. I always get compliments on my desserts!
My cooking tragedies
I am half Puerto Rican...which means I should be able to speak a little Spanish, make flan, and cook rice...I can't cook rice! No matter how I try, it NEVER comes out right...it's either not cooked completely or it's sticky. Luckily, my husband likes sticky rice! Oh, and it ALWAYS boils over!! Grrr.
