I'm a native San Diegan. I've been cooking since I was about 12. I had to learn to cook because the best thing my Mom could cook, besides Fantasy Fudge, was a box of Noodle Roni Parmesan! The Red & White Better Homes & Gardens Cookbook was my bible back then...I love to cook, and people love to eat my food...and that makes Mama Mo really happy!
My favorite things to cook
Mexican food is my favorite to cook.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Grandmother, Mama Dora, was from La Huerta Mexico. She made the best Homemade tortillas I've ever had in my life. They were always ready to be cooked on her stove on a cast iron cooker. Her torillas were corn and flour mixed together. She gave me the recipe before she passed away, but I can not get the recipe right...
My cooking triumphs
I have mastered the BBQ and my hand rolled tacos are absolutely the Bomb!
My cooking tragedies
Geez...I catered a party for friends and bought these horrible torillas that dried all up and cracked...good thing my food was good and you didn't really need a tortilla!
