About this Cook
I moved halfway across the country to live with a man I fell in love with through a video game. And the only thing I knew how to make was Mac 'n' Cheese! I left armed with my mom's Tuna casserole, chicken adobo, deviled eggs and mexican beefaroni recipes. The Mexican beefaroni has another name down here in Texas, Frito pie. When those became a hit I tried to make bread pudding with my new man and through that I found And not a moment too soon as the boyfriend and I are starting to eat healthier and aim towards a more active lifestyle.
My favorite things to cook
Bread pudding, my dad's chicken chiliquillas, and my mom's tuna casarole when I miss home too much. =)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family always sits down to eat together. I am trying to get the boyfriend into the habit but he is seldom sitting anywhere except for in front of the computer.
My cooking triumphs
My first tuna caserole here came out wonderful. It was my first time cooking anything in/on a gas range. My boyfriend, who hates fish, loved it.
My cooking tragedies
Every year I make the pumpkin pie back home for Thanksgiving...and every year we pull "the spare(a frozen pre-made) one" out of the freezer because I somehow ruin the first one. =(

Mom's Warm Milk
I have got to say this recipe is a life-saver! When I am stressed after work or after studying for a test that's the next day, I have a cup of this and it calms me down enough to where I can get some much needed rest. Thank you so much!
