Living with Diabetes for nearly 6 years now has motivated me more to cook at home. Finding recipes that are not only quick and easy but low in carbs is my goal to maintain my lifestyle.
My favorite things to cook
Vegetables! I have to keep a large variety of vegetables in my diet so I'm always looking for new ways to cook them.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Being Mexican I grew up making tamales, rice, tortillas, and various types of meat. I still love the old Mexican traditions and try to in corporate them in my diet as I can.
My cooking triumphs
None that are on paper but my family cannot get over the things I cook, so far my specialty has been cheesecake, mashed potatoes and a large range of Hispanic dishes.
My cooking tragedies
I make a yearly birthday cake for my husband to be and in 2012 is the year it went wrong for the first time (in 5 years) and I actually cried about it >.
