About this Cook
Mom of four daughters 9 and under. Enough said for now.
My favorite things to cook
Stroganoff (oldest's favorite, mexican lasagne, white chicken enchiladas, my special cheesecake, tuna casserole (for the quick nights).
My favorite family cooking traditions
Authentic mexican enchiladas on Christmas Eve. My step-dad was Mexican and that was our Christmas Eve tradition. Enchiladas and one present opened!
My cooking triumphs
I learned how to make omelets and crepes. I am not a big breakfast person though. Also, turning leftovers into something just as awesome but totally different the next night. I turned a slow-cooked pork roast, with potatoes and carrots into chili the next night. I just chopped everything, added a couple cans of great northern beans and a packet of white chicken chili seasoning back into slow cooker. It was amazing. I never thought carrots in chili would be good. Who knew?
My cooking tragedies
My ex-husbands 21st birthday cake was completely burnt and then I tried to frost it while it was still warm! I was only about 17 at the time. He ate it though. :) Now I buy store made cakes for the kids, but I think we are going to try to get more creative with birthday desserts than regular over sugared birthday cakes from the supermarket.
