I am a stay at home mom of 2 beautiful girls, Estrella(Star) and Dulce(Candy). I get my mexican cuisine interest from my husband who hails from Jalisco, Mexico. VIVA MEXICO!!! My mom's side of the family loves food, we even have our own family cookbook compiled of everyones favorite recipes. :) I love Rachael Ray, cause she gets her inspration from mexican cuisine.
My favorite things to cook
Pozole(crockpot), ceviche, menudo(crockpot), pancakes, crockpot stews, chili, tacos, spaghetti, tres leches cake, spinach manicotti, flan, mainly spanish food. But I also like to make mashed potatoes, cavitini, green bean casserole.....and so much more!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Biscuits and gravy!, baked beans, potato salad, scalloped potatoes, potato soup, macaroni and cheese, fried chicken, basically southern cooking
My cooking triumphs
My 1st time making a tres leches cake, it was so good my hubby says it gets better and better every time I make one because it tastes EXACTLY like the tres leches cakes back home in mexico :) Plus my triumph is to hear my hubby say my food tastes good every time I make something, especially when I remember my ex husband used to say that my cooking sucked.
My cooking tragedies
Making chicken nuggets one day and the apartment filled with smoke and fire alarm going off! HAHAHA Putting aluminum foil over flan and it ended up curdling when I knew better than to put foil over the baking dish. Another tragedy was my spaghetti filled with too much chili powder, where I was living, we had no salt or other seasonings in the house and the sauce was bland so I ODed on the powder.
