I don't know about you, but the buttermilk always seems to be lurking in my refrigerator past the expiration date. Well, four days past the expiration date, I am baking and cooking up a buttermilk storm. To prove it,  I also have the aching baker's feet that I heard other people talking about… MORE

A good biscuit is one that is soft and fluffy. It doesn't crumble when you eat it, nor is it dry.  My biscuit test is simple. If you eat the biscuit the next day, doesn't fall apart, and is still moist; then, I love it! My family's favorite way to eat biscuits is the: Lela's Bacon Egg and… MORE

What's for breakfast?  I am driving down that "What's for Breakfast Highway"-wondering what to make for breakfast? Are you tired of that poptart? Here are some breakfast recipes I tried recently. The granola bars and cinnamon rolls are great to place in the freezer. Just pull the bars out and… MORE

About Me
I enjoy cooking for our family sit down dinners. Although my kids are grown, we are a close family that enjoys 4-5 sit down dinners a week together. My family's favorite dinner is chicken enchiladas smothered in green chili. I have a passion for cooking, baking for the holidays and food photography.
My favorite things to cook
I am family oriented and spend time with my family enjoying meals. My favorite things to cook are Mexican food and any food my family asks me to cook. My family looks forward to home cooked Mexican food at least once a week and Italian food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am on a journey to reclaim family recipes that were lost when the cooks in my family passed away. Cooking traditions are a major part of my passion for cooking. On Christmas Eve, we always had green chili and tamales. Cookie baking, lemon bars, pizzelles , and potica have been a must at Christmas as long as I can remember. My family looks forward to homemade pizza, when we gather as a family to decorate the Christmas cookies. Thanksgiving wouldn't be Thanksgiving without noodles and gravy piled high on mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie, and broccoli and rice casserole. On the 4th of July, there is the 4th of July Potato Salad that I make using 10 pounds of potatoes. Mexican Food is part of our weekly menu--green chili served over mashed potatoes or as a slopper (green chili poured over hamburgers.) I am always making tortillas for someone. They call my tortillas little white pieces of gold. Saturdays are Family night for dinner. It is the one day my kids can request a meal.
My cooking triumphs
Seeking help on the Buzz and the AR Blog has resulted in a few triumphs. I am extremely ecstatic about overcoming the yeast monster. I can now bake baguettes, focaccia and the best rolls in the world, my Grandma Rita's Butter Rolls.
My cooking tragedies
My first attempts at baking bread/rolls resulted in rock hard flat rolls. However, I am improving. Baking at High Altitude is somewhat of a challenge.
