First of all, I would like to give tribute to all the Military Veterans, those in active duty, and those who gave their lives for our country.

I have a special place in my heart for those who serve(ed) to protect our country. It takes a special person to serve our country and a lot of time and dedication to protect our country.

 I would like to thank you for all you do for America.

On Memorial Day, my husband and I went to visit the Veterans'

Bridge here in Pueblo, Colorado.  I had purchased plaques to honor the Veterans in my family. I am very pleased with the plaques and the location of the Veteran's Bridge.

The Veteran's Bridge overlooks the riverwalk.

The bridge overlooks the water fountain.

I thought the Veterans' Bridge is located in a beautiful part of our city and what a great honor for our Veterans!

Always Good To Know Veterans Get acknowledgment for the work they\we did and continue to do not only for our freedom, but the freedom of people from other countries that need our help to weed out evil were ever it may exist. on another note There are a few pictures on the Internet of this bridge, and apparently this company helped in the design

Lela, such an honor to the Veterans, living and passed. Even though some Americans turned their backs on us, I never turned my back on America while I proudly served in Vietnam. I'm even more proud that there are caring people like you. Great blog.

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.
