I am a stay-at-home-mom (3 boys+1 girl) and wife. I enjoy using a variety of fresh, organic ingredients and I love a challenging recipe that is worth the work.
My favorite things to cook
Spaghetti, Green chile chicken enchiladas, Green chile stew, Thanksgiving dinner, Steaks, all sorts of breads and sweets.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Big feasts for holidays and making a family secret cookie recipe with my children.
My cooking triumphs
I make fabulous chicken enchiladas with white sauce and green chiles(according to my 3 boys, husband and friends). I can roast a bird to perfection. I make all of my sauces and gravies from scratch. Not to bad on the grill either.
My cooking tragedies
When I first met my husband, I wanted to prepare a very complex dinner to impress him. Long story short, I was so nervous every time he'd come into the kitchen to watch me that I burned my hands twice and dinner was 2 hours behind schedule. It tasted great though and everyone raved.
