I am a work-at-home wife to my wonderful husband Fred, and my awesome 7 children ages 13,11,10,9,7,6 and 5 with another due in November. We are so blessed!
My favorite things to cook
I LOVE cooking Italian and Mexican food, and my specialties are baking and kid friendly dishes (for obvious reasons =D) I dabble in vegan and alkaline eating since hubby and I like our night quiet time, but value our health as well!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holidays mean family cooking, ALWAYS. My kids LOVE to help in the kichen, and most have mastered the basics a quite a young age. We do cakes, cookies, pies, casseroles, and love doing the semi-annual gingerbread house!
My cooking triumphs
I had the hardest time mastering the art of breadmaking. It took me YEARS of experimentations and a lot of patience from my husband, but now I can make a nice everyday bread, as well as dinner rolls, soft pretzels, cinnamon buns and foccacia that are requested at pot luck and family get together we attend.
My cooking tragedies
I once tried to make Chori Pollo ( a mexican chicken and chorizo dish) from scratch and it was so far beyond a disaster it isnt even funny. We had a food-burial funeral in the back yard. I hate wasting food, and that was not a low price dish, lol!
