About this Cook
My name is Melissa and I am a mother to an awesome kid. I am a student and an Elementary school tutor and my husband is in the Army. I have been cooking for a LONG time now. I love it.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking Filipino food (thanks to my husband, he makes some awesome lumpia), and Mexican food, thanks to my abuelita (grandma).
My favorite family cooking traditions
I guess I just wrote that above didn't I?

Marinated Baked Pork Chops
I am not a big fan of pork, but this recipe made me love it!!! I just added an extra tablespoon of brown sugar to the sauce and it turned out heavenly!! My son loved it too and he is like me, doesnt like pork much.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf
I tweaked this recipe a bit. Instead of putting the ketchup and brown sugar mixture at the bottom, I put it on top. I also added about a tablespoon of mustard to the mixture and about 2-3 tablespoons of brown sugar to the meat. Turned out delicious!!! Wonderful recipe!!!
