About this Cook
I'm from one little town in Chihuahua, Mexico, My mother use to bake us cakes everyday. I learned from her how to cook. I also learn that the most important ingredient on any meal is LOVE. This will make a big difference in anything you cook or do. God gave us food so we, mothers can pass his love to our husband and children.
My favorite things to cook
This is difficult to say. It depends on the seasson we are. But I think Thanksgiving and Christmas are my favorite two days to cook. Of course, as a Mexican, Tamales are the mos expected meal at Christmas.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking Tamales for Christmas. a lot of cookies thru the year. And of course, a birthday Cake for each of the family members.
My cooking triumphs
The first year I baked a turkey by my self. I was almost 18 years ago. I was pregnant, I baked the turkey, made cookies and desserts. We have a greatg family reunion that thanksgiving. And the Monday after that, my baby born.
My cooking tragedies
Many to tell, LOL. I made fried potatoes’ patties, and my dog ate them all. When my husband returned home he laughed to death. The dog didn’t eat its food that day. I was not hungry at all after eating 20 patties

Banana Loaf Cake I
Great, wonderfull banana bread, you can add a lot of diferent ingredientas. I will make a lot of recipes from this one, from banana bread to banana chocolate chip cinnamon cake, etc. This cake has the simplicity we need to expand our creativity in the kitchen. I will make 10 cakes today for a dinner at church. I'm sure they will love it.

Baked Pork Chops II
My husband loved this recipe. I put my mexican touch adding a 1/4 cup jalapenos salsa that my husband loves. Even my children liked it. I made 10 pork chops, and the baking time was 1 hour. They are juicy tender chops, mmmm . I'm sure this recipe will become a favorite for my family.
