About this Cook
I have worked in the corporate world for 15+ years, but have since "retired" to become a stay home mom. I am mom to three handsome boys ages 7, 4 & 3, along with the cutiest pup in the world - Tucker.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook Mexican and Italian cuisine.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom wasn't much of a cook. My brother and I used to tease her about her spagetthi. We'd tell her that the way to eat her spagetthi was to first eat the noodles, then drink the sauce. Her cooking has improved over the years. Maybe that's the reason I developed a passion for cooking at such a young age. LOL :)
My cooking triumphs
We recently had friends over for dinner, one of whom was a vegetarian, who was of Indian descent. I was not too familiar with East Indian cuisine, so I searched Allrecipes for an ethnic vegetarian dish. I found a recipe called Marakesh Vegetable Curry and it was fantastic! Thanks Allrecipes!
My cooking tragedies
For the life of me I cannot seem to cook Asian foods. I'm not quite sure what it is, but that is the one ethnic cuisine I can't seem to master.
