Cooking with a Mess
About this Cook
As I near 30, I am starting to understand the beauty of cooking great meals. Although it's not often enough, when my man says "wow, this tastes really good" It makes me feel so GREAT! I want to make sure that when we have a family someday hopefully sooner than later, my kids will be happy to eat my meals.
My favorite things to cook
I really love Mexican, although, living in san diego, it's much easier (and cheaper) to just go 2 blocks to Sombreros than to make something. But I am working on my seafood techniques and I also really enjoy baking! Oh... and I LOVE the slow cooker!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite tradition dealing with food is during Christmas time, Myself, my sister and step brothers get very creative with our cookie frosting. We spend hours making creations out of little cookies. Some of our creations were a Matrix inspired NEO, Buffy the Vampire with breast enlargments, and Dolphins with Laser Beams attached to thier heads!! :)
My cooking triumphs
The first time I baked a banana bread and it turned out DELICIOUS!!
My cooking tragedies
There are WAY TOO MANY to name here and I would really rather try to forget them.

Ghirardelli(R) Magic Cookie Bars
YUMMM! I made these omitting the nuts and coconut (allergies) but since it's fall I mixed 1/2 cup pumpkin and some pumpkin pie spice into the the evaporated milk before pouring onto grahams. So delish!

Mom's Chocolate Chip Cookies
Really good. The pudding adds an extra special sweetness. I like experimenting with different flavor puddings.
