I was raised by a mother who learned to cook good old midwestern cooking. All the pies from scratch, crusts too. Since we lived in Arizona, I also learned authentic Mexican cooking. That's probably my specialty. I am an expert with many mexican food dishes. My chicken enchiladas and spanish rice are the best!! I just throw stuff together for them, but I am going to figure out amounts, and then write up a recipe and submit it. They are the best you've ever tasted!
My favorite things to cook
Pies from scratch, Chrismas candy, like peanut butter balls, homemade chocolate covered cherries, peanut brittle, english toffee, etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pies from scratch, and a killer Thanksgiving dinner.
My cooking triumphs
My chicken enchiladas, definately!
My cooking tragedies
I tend to burn stuff. I love to turn on the broiler to get stuff brown, and then forget about it. Not a good thing, especially with a smoke detector near the kitchen.
