I am a married family man living in Northern California with 2 daughters and a 1+year old Black Lab.
My favorite things to cook
Mexican food, any kind of pastry/dessert, and really I like to try things I've never attempted before!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Being of Mexican descent, tamales at Christmas time is mandatory. Having married into an Italian family, italian cookies and suchlike are a must.
My cooking triumphs
Successfully baking an italian bread recipe I downloaded off of this website (Thanks, Mama D!). It pleased my family so much that the bread became an instant staple in our family. No family get-together is complete without it!
My cooking tragedies
...wishing my mother were still alive to share with me her secrets to truly GREAT mexican food.
