About this Cook
Cooking is definitely a hobby for me and never something i could pursue as a career. I like to try new things, but I'm always on the lookout for a good Mexican dish. I want my 7 year old son to learn cooking basics now when he's young and he loves to help and learn so we're a great team in the kitchen.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make all kinds of deserts. Especially cheesecakes. I can't get enough Mexican food, I absolutely love Mexican!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother taught me how to cook when i was in my late teens. Eventually, when i finally did show an interest, she showed me a lot and i would like to make some new memories in the kitchen with my son.
My cooking triumphs
I would consider myself a well rounded cook, although I am still humble enough to admit that there is still much more i can learn. My biggest cooking triumph, to date, would be understanding basic herbs and seasonings and how they either work or don't work in certain dishes.
My cooking tragedies
I can't cook breakfast with out burning it. There's just too much to do and too little time. I only cook one thing for breakfast now and just make cereal or have granola bar to go with it.

Southwestern Egg Rolls
I made these as written and they came out great! I followed another reader recommendation and made Amy's creamy cilatro sauce to go with them which was a perfect combination. At that point I decided to make a beef and seafood version of these and make it a dipping meal. For beef I had some leftover pumpkin turkey chili (from this site) which I mixed with mexican cheese blend and wrapped them up in 10 inch tortilla's, fried them then served with caso cheese sauce. For the seafood I used imitation crab mixed with red onion, garlic, red pepper, black olives and mixed in some monterey jack cheese, then fried. i paired the crab wrap with peach mango salsa. yummm... I found that 10 inch tortilla's work better and next time I will bake these instead.
