About this Cook
I'm 22 years old and I love to cook and have a good time. I currently am thinking about enrollin in culinary school to further my experience. I also love playin sports. I play volleyball and softball in women's and co-ed leagues, I guess i can be kinda competitive, but I always make sure I have fun over anything. I also love feeding my teams, i end up getting alot of compliments on my food. I also enjoy traveling so i make sure I try many different kinds of food from different parts of the world and different cultures.
My favorite things to cook
I LOVE cookin Comfort Food, and Italian food. Those are the two things that I love to eat, and that I am very good at cooking. I also like to bake and have takin cake decorating classes, so I think it's fun and something that my younger sisters enjoy doing with me.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from a Mexican American family, so every year the day before christmas eve all the women in my family get together all day and make tamales. We make the masa, carne con chile, and assemble. It's an all day process, and we drink(just a little of courseLOL) and enjoy each others company.

Best Ever Banana Bread
I tried this for the first time today with some bananas I had previously frozen & thawed out. The loaf came out gorgeous, moist, and delicious.

Fluffy Pancakes
I have been using this recipe for a few years now and I LOVE IT!!! They are quick, easy, cheap to make, and quite delectable. My fiance is a pancake fiend so this recipe gets put to great use and I also have to double it when my nieces and nephews spend the night because they swear these are the "Best Pancakes EVER".
