About this Cook
Married with 3 children. I have a passion for cooking, kitchen gadgets,bargain hunting, great cheap wine,& fighting for the right cause. I dream of a gourmet kitchen and put on cooking shows for my kids. Since I found this website I am always on it. I usually always change recipes, however I haven't done this here yet.I guess I respect the 'real cooks'.
My favorite things to cook
I love Mexican, Chinese, & of course Southern. I am currently experimenting Indian (Naan is great!).I also love to bake.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I make birthday cakes for the Kids always. They choose the flavor and I get to bakin'. For holidays we plan menus with my extended family comittee.My little brother, my baby sister, myself and my mom, We choose a theme and each is in charge of a particular part.Most of the time I am 'sides' or 'desserts'.It gets interesting as we blend cultures like any good hispanic american. Tamales & turkey! yum!
My cooking triumphs
When I was still pregnant with my eight year old daughter ,we had a party at my house.With all my heart I prepared a buffet meal for about 40 people.I had 3 different meat entrees, sides,drinks & desserts.Everyone complimented on everything. The next day I went into labor.
My cooking tragedies
When I was twelve my baby sister was born. I was so happy I celebrated her 3 months and baked her a cake.Everything was fine until I made the icing.I did not know the difference between confectioners & granulated sugar,so I used granulated sugar that would not dissolve. I went ahead and iced the cake anyways. It was so gritty. Everyone kept saying how good it was, but I knew they were only trying to be nice.

Best Bread Machine Bread
I tried this in my old sojirushi and pressed quick bread (instead of basic bread)setting accidentally. It did a great job Kudos to the ol soji!!!But the bread seemed bland. Next time I will make adjustments for flavor.So good formula, but consider reviews of those who didn't change the entire thing(lol) but only made a few subs.

Really delicious and easy to make. I followed recipe and it cooks easily on the grill and in a regular oven on a pizza stone. Next time maybe less sugar due to personal taste.I gave it four because there is a particular indian restaurant in my area that serves the most outstanding naan.
