About this Cook
I am still adjusting to being a mom even though my son is nearing his second birthday. I now spend all my time in the kitchen with him attached to my leg. He is entering the terrible two's early and spends most his time trying to suck the blood out of my calf. I do have the bite marks to prove it.
My favorite things to cook
Spicy and quick.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am still rebelling! I grew up on casseroles, slow-cookers, and meatloaf. It took me over 10 years of marriage to finally make my own meatloaf. I introduced my mom to real garlic (she thought it only came powdered).
My cooking triumphs
I put together a 38 page cookbook with pictures of all my favorites for my family and friends as a Christmas present.
My cooking tragedies
I can not do a gravy that doesn't separate.

Cranberry Relish I
Tangy and sweet. This was well received by the whole family. I did use the entire orange, peel and all. Next time I do plan to add chopped pecans.

Mexican Jicama Snack
I added fresh chopped clinatro and let it marinade for a few hours. Yum!
