I love cooking and finding different and interesting recipes. I must have 20 cookbooks on top of the 2 or 3 I have compiled myself. My biggest fan is my husband, who is also my biggest taste-tester. I also love to read, go kayaking or water rafting, knitting...I love watching movies and I love spending time with God. I am a gemini so I am a jack of all trades and a master of none...
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook mexican food since my husband is mexican. I try to get close to what his family cooks but I don't think I am close yet. I mostly cook with chicken. I also love to experiment with baking and go through phases where I bake cookies, pies, cakes and anything else I come across. I also love to cook pasta and italian foods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Favorite family cooking traditions...hmmm...my dad's huge meatballs. Those are legendary and the best. He also makes great hot-wings and yummy lasagna. My grandmothers chicken and veggies has been pasted down 3 generations as far as I know and is one of the fav's of the family. Also her pork-butts are the best.
My cooking triumphs
Making flan...I finally got my mother-in-laws recipe and although I have not perfected it I am coming pretty close. Also just cooking in general...I could only cook mac-n-cheese when my husband and I moved in together...I have come a long way and have found that I have a knack for it. Not surprising though as great cooks run in the family.
My cooking tragedies
hhhmmmm??? All of the sudden my memory blanked...
