My hubby and I
About this Cook
I'm Rachael, a 24-year-old American girl from Morgantown, West Virginia now living in Irapuato, Guanajuato, Mexico. I came here as an English teacher and stayed because I really enjoyed my job. Now, I'm married and a housewife, which I enjoy equally as much if not more. I really love being here, but I also REALLY miss West Virginia. It will always be my home, sweet home!
My favorite things to cook
I love trying to make everything from scratch and I cook 3 meals a day everyday, which my husband and I eat together. Some processed/canned/packaged foods are hard to find here anyway, so I rarely cook with things other than fresh vegetables, meat, fish, grains, etc. I like to make comfort and Southern foods that I grew up eating, really traditional Mexican foods (so no baked enchiladas or taco seasoning, etc.), and Indian food. I still don't know much about Indian food, but I hope to learn!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom makes the most delicious dinner rolls for holidays. She has the same recipe as my great grandmother, and I will surely keep using her recipe and pass it on to my kids. My family also eats creamed tomatoes and biscuits every Christmas morning-more recipes from my grandmother.
My cooking triumphs
I've always been happy with how my enchiladas verdes turn out, since the first time I tried making them.
My cooking tragedies
When I got married I had very little experience with seafood. I'm mildly allergic to shellfish and besides that I've never been much of a fan. I will eat fish though, but I had never loved it enough to make it at home. My husband asked for it one day and I agreed to give it a shot. I don't think I realized how fragile some fish filets can be. The whole things stuck to the pan horribly and when I tried to get it out of the pan, it broke into a bunch of pieces. Ugh!
