I work full time and I have three kids aged 20, 18 and 16. I recently met a wonderful man and he has a 9 year-old son. They are not used to food from scratch and semi-homemade food, but they are getting used to being spoiled! It's a challenge to keep everyone happy at meal times, but I aim to please.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make pizza, spaghetti, chicken and rice, burritos, ok anything Mexican or Italian; love to bake- my specialties are chocolate cake, chocolate chip cookies, chocolate truffles, are we sensing a trend here?
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom taught me to make traditional Spanish rice, enchiladas, tortillas, and sopaipillas. My aunt taught me to make biscochitos. I love making traditional Mexican dishes because they remind me of when I was young with my mom and her sisters.
My cooking triumphs
A perfect shrimp and crab pasta salad, decadent chocolate truffles, and tortillas that don't look like maps.
My cooking tragedies
Just burning stuff really makes me mad. Try not to, but I got a new set of chef's stainless steel pans which are tricky if you aren't used to them.
