writer. reader. poet. new wife. no kids but 2 dogs. i love to cook and bake.
My favorite things to cook
mexican food is my specialty; but i love to make italian food and i love to bake cakes and cookies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
my mother's enchiladas, tamales, and fried chicken recipes are staples. my grandmother makes the perfect mexican rice that try as i might, i can't duplicate :)
My cooking triumphs
italian food, mastering my mom's recipes, making an entire thanksgiving meal on my own from scratch last year, and i've become a pretty good cake decorator/baker.
My cooking tragedies
eh i might have burned some things a few times.
