I am a single mother with 2 children. My daughter won't eat anything I cook except arroz and tortillas! So I usually just microwave her some chicken nuggets!
My favorite things to cook
Mexican, Chinese and Italian. I try to eat healthfully, so I love finding delicious recipes that are good for you too.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love holidays. Whether it is turkey or tamales, there's something special about cooking huge meals for my family.
My cooking triumphs
I love the fact that I can make flour and corn tortillas from scratch. Not that many white girls have mastered this and so I feel that my talent is somewhat special.
My cooking tragedies
The first Thanksgiving dinner I ever fully prepared I neglected to take the bag of giblets out of the bird's neck. I had only ever prepared chicken and wondered why I didn't get any giblets when I took the neck out of the body cavity! Needless to say, I had a bag of cooked giblets appear while attempting to carve the bird - very embarrassing!
