I'm a single mom with only one left at home, so cooking for the two of us is challenging. My boys love to get in the kitchen with me and cook and we have a great time.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook mexican and grill. I am working on perfecting baking bread.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I make these really awesome mint cookies every Christmas. They are so good, like chewy little mint ores! We can't go through the season without them. We also have Mexican food for Christmas dinner every year. We like it much better than turkey again.
My cooking triumphs
I'm working on being able to make a good loaf of bread. I am really great at grilling too! I can grill just about anything. And cheesecake is my specialty dessert!
My cooking tragedies
Earthquake cake.....couldn't keep this one together with a whole bowl of icing. What a disaster for a birthday. Then the brownie ice cream cake that wouldn't cut after an hour out of the freezer. This was for my daughter's 8th birthday or so, and it was so bad!
