About this Cook
I'm married with no children, but we have several wonderful pets to keep us busy. Also, I've been a hairdresser for several years and enjoy my work very much. I've always loved to bake and cook and it makes me so happy when people (especially Hubby) love my cooking.
My favorite things to cook
I love making anything Mexican or Italian, and I've recently been trying to cook very healthy dishes. I love making all kinds of desserts, too. Especially cookies and cheesecakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My cooking tradition is to start baking about 20 different kinds of cookies about two weeks before Christmas to give out as gifts and I sell some of it to my coworkers and customers, and also some of my husbands coworkers. I get very tired and stressed out with all this, but it's rewarding to see how excited everyone gets over my cookies!
My cooking triumphs
I've just recently started making real cheesecakes in a springform pan, and the three that I've made have come out really good. I never thought I'd be able to make these come out so good.
My cooking tragedies
I have trouble with candy-making. I've had to throw fudge and pecan pralines away, which was a real drag!

Easy Chili I
I could only give it 4 stars since I changed it up a bit. I added extra bell pepper, an extra clove of garlic and an extra tablespoon of chili powder. I also added an extra 1/2 tsp. of cumin. In place of the jalapeno I added a can of rotel, which gave it just enough heat for us since we like spicy food. With my modifications, this is a 5 star recipe.

Black Bean and Corn Salad II
I absolutely loved this salad! I only had one can of black beans, so I also added a can of garbanzo beans. I only added half of a red bell pepper and added a finely diced jalapeno with the seeds removed. The last thing I did diffently is I added grape tomatoes cut in half instead of regular tomato. This salad is so light and refreshing, I'll definitely be making it again!
