About this Cook
I have been cooking since I was 7, learned from the best, my Mom. Watched her cooking and kept a watchful eye on the "key" ingredients, so that I can make the same later. I have 4 kids, 2 boys, 2 girls. Happily married since 1997 to a great man. Although he can't boil water,no really he tried once and burned my new kettle, he does enjoy my cooking and is sure to let me know. Cooking for my family is one of the most importanat joys I have in cooking, that way I know they are recieving a great nutricious meal everytime.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook mexican ,since I am hispanic. But I do dabble in a lot of different recipes. Mexican, italian, chinese,asian, gourmet. Since we travel a lot to my husbands town, Sinaloa, Mexico, my mother-in-law, teaches me how to cook all the favorite things my husband ate as a kid and still enjos at home. Most of it is seafood though, but really delicious! Shrimp a la veracruzana is one of the newest recipes we tried together.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite cooking traditions is cooking as a family. I would cook and bake with my mother, and now pass this wonderful tradition to my son and soon to my daughter.(she' only 6 now)
My cooking triumphs
According to my kids it would be my baking, they love my cookies, no matter what kind of cookies, they gobble them up like crazy! But to my husband he loves my cheesecake, i don't care for cheesecake all that much, but he devours the one i make and that is no small feat, it's a pretty big cheesecake! :)
My cooking tragedies
When I was about 12 yrs. old I wanted to surprise my mom with some oatmeal cookies, I was so excited when pulling them out of the oven, To my shock they actually turned to stone, till this day I have no idea what went wrong, and don't go any where near any oatmeal cookie recipes.

Sauteed Apples
This recipe is a great start, but had to change a few things. As is it comes out too sweet, cut back the sugar, and I added 1 tsp nutmeg and 1 tsp of vanilla. This came out better the second time around with the changes I mentioned...........

Pizza Rolls
I was in a bind to make something for lunch for m kids, and when I saw I had everything for this recipe, I went for it. And let me tell you, I will never buy frozen ones again! They were crispy on the outside and goey and saucy in the inside! My kids devoured them fast! Thanks again for the great no brainer recipe!
