About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook new things, esspecially if they are from scratch. I like the satisfaction of learning how to make something that most people would buy. Right now I am consumed with making home-made baby food for my 7 month old little girl.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is from Mexico. We loved to make HUGE batches of tamales as a family. This would take all day long. In assembly line style, everyone would spread the masa on the husks except my mom and dad. They would spoon on the meat filling and roll the tamales. We couldn't wait to gobble them up! My parents usually made some seperately for themselves when we (6) kids were little. We couldn't eat the very hot ones. Now I love them hot!
My cooking tragedies
When I was newly married and very inexperienced in cooking I invited my in-laws for dinner. I had made roast in the crockpot and loved the results so I thought I would try chicken for something new. I cooked it for HOURS. The meat was WAY over cooked. It was like that gross potted meat you can buy in a can. I hid the mess, and served tacos instead.

Chicken Vegetable Barley Soup
even my husband loved it! the only change i made was no mushrooms (i had none), compensated for that by adding a little extra potatoes & carrots. then i had to add extra broth (i used my own homemade, simmer-all-day broth). i served it with grated parmeson.

Whole Wheat Honey Bread
This is an excellent recipe!!! Surprisingly light and airy. I will be making this one a lot. I did get confused about the 1/8cup part. I don't have that measuring cup, after google i learned that 1/8cup is 2 tbs. as suggested by others I substituted 1/2 c white for whole wheat, used white bread setting, and baked it in the oven instead of the machine. When it came out of the oven i brushed it with butter. I also added the following: 1 tbs vital wheat gluten 3 tablespoons lightly toasted flax seed 4 teaspoons lightly toasted sesame seeds 2 teaspoons poppy seeds 2 tbs wheat germ 5 tsp lightly toasted sunflower seeds add a little extra(1 1/2 tbs) water to compensate. I will add more sunflower seeds next time and add 1 tbs xtra water instead of 1 1/2 the result was a sweet, nutty, wonderful bread that i feel good about eating for all it's healthy ingredients!
