well, I am back sort of. Surgery went well to remove the brain tumor. Didn't get all of it, but they are going to keep an eye on it and will radiate it if it starts to grow. I get my staples out on Monday the 28th! I am so excited. I haven't been able
to brush the hair I have normally for…
I am a thirtysomething mother of 2 - 16 year old girl and 12 yr old boy. I have been married to my highschool sweetheart for 20 years. We just built our dream home. We own our own business that keeps us pretty busy. We love to go to the lake and have get-togethers with friends and family. I love to cook!
My favorite things to cook
Anything new! I love to try differnt cuisines. I love to grill and cook in a wok or slow cooker. Spicy is good - Mexican is awesome.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We love to have a party for New Years Eve and try to make homemade tamales with the group. The first year - didn't work out too well - we didn't get to eat the tamales until 3 am. But this past New Years - I pre-made some of both kinds and then had the filling to make more so my guests could be a part - smashing hit! And they were better than anything I have ever had in a restaurant!!!
My cooking triumphs
Tamales, I guess. And I have made gyros before which were fantastic.
My cooking tragedies
not too many, but the first time making tamales was quite interesting, 3 Am is a little late to be eating tamales, but they were still good and freeze quite well. lol
