About this Cook
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!
Recipe Reviews 15 reviews
Should be corrected: this recipe is specifically for gingerbread houses as it is, like the other reviewer stated heavy and hard, but as you would think walls should be. I would find a chewier recipe for cookies, but for gingerbread walls, roof and other structures, this is perfect: )

Aunt Teen's Creamy Chocolate Fudge
Delicious! I have never made fudge before so I was nervous, but everyone told me that it was the best fudge they've had for a long time, perhaps ever. This will be my new Christmas tradition! I didn't check for the soft ball stage or anything, I just followed the directions. Put it on medium heat and once it starts boiling wait five minutes. I whisked the evaporated milk/marshmallow cream mixture constantly the entire time and actually got quite a burn from a popping bubble. I didn't mix the walnuts in, but waited about a minute after I had poured it in the pan and sprinkled them on top. By this time, the fudge has started to set so I just took my hands and pushed them in with gentle, but firm pressure. I saw little brownish chunks in the mixture as I was whisking (probably from burnt sugar) but I kept at it and the finished product was very creamy, completely sinful and perfectly formed! Thanks!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins
These are the first blueberry muffins I have ever made from scratch and they turned out surprisingly well. I made a few changes and was surprised to see that alot of people had made the same changes. I used buttermilk instead of milk and had to use about a half cup or even a smidgen more. Brown sugar instead of the white for the topping and I used fresh blueberries even though they were sooo expensive in the middle of winter. I would definitely halve the topping as it made way too much. These are definitely the best made-from-scratch bleberry muffins I've ever tasted, so five stars it gets!
