I am best with most anything in Mexican quisine as my spouse is Mexican- go figure;) Would like to expand my repetoire in the foreseeable future.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Frijoles, arroz, sopa, quacamole, tortillas, migas, salsas, FAJITAS!!! When we do it up, we do it with gusto!!!
My cooking triumphs
I have recently begun baking bread- lots of it. THAT has been a triumph. Now I am canning homegrown vegetables, and am loving every minute.
My cooking tragedies
Any time I try to make something by taste!!! My husband is the chef in this house and I love to be his sous!!! He keeps telling me to cook by the seat of my pants. I can't even SEE the seat of my pants, much less cook by them!!!

Steve's Famous Garlic Home Fries
This is a great recipe and just what I was looking for. I had a small, very ripe tomato from the garden that I diced up and put in as well as 2 leftover pieces of bacon. What a treat!!! Thanks for the base.
