About this Cook
Homeschooling mom of four. Sometimes I like to cook. Sometimes I have to cook.
My favorite things to cook
Authentic Mexican food, slow-cooker meals, roast chicken and other meals with leftovers, meals that are easy to clean up, anything my whole family likes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I like making bread in our bread maker with my boys. They take turns adding ingredients and pretend they're creating avalanches or storms or burying tiny villages.
My cooking triumphs
At an office party a Mexican-American coworker called his mom from work to tell her "this white girl" made better enchiladas than she did. (Of course I have a Mexican source...)
My cooking tragedies
Put oil in a skillet on high heat and walked out of the kitchen. Brilliant. Grabbed flaming pan (thank goodness for protective handles!) and carried it outside, but not before covering my kitchen cabinets and ceiling in a layer of soot.
