I, like most everyone else, am a "work in progress". Since I had my first child in January 2008 I realized that I have no idea who I am or who I am "supposed" to be (even though just a few years ago I had it all figured out!) and I'm better off not knowing because that way maybe my expectations will be more realistic!! I LOVE my daughter more than anything in the world but she certainly makes me question everything in life way more than I ever did before. That's a good thing right?!
My favorite things to cook
Pretty much anything. I mostly enjoy creating Mexican dishes but I really just enjoy the whole process of cooking in general.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Growing up my family didn't have any traditions but now that I've got a family of my own we've started the tradition of making Tamales around Christmas time as well as different types of fudge.
My cooking triumphs
Before becoming a stay at home mom I developed recipes/dishes for grocery stores and restaurants on a daily basis. In my opinion every time one of my recipes was approved by a customer it was a triumph! It's very exciting to go to a store or restaurant and see something that I've created on the shelf or on the menu!
My cooking tragedies
There are no tragedies. It's all a learning experience!
