About this Cook
Wife,Mama to my 2 beautiful boys, and student! I have been cooking since I was 5 when my dad helped me flip pancakes and scramble eggs to now cooking delicious meals from decadent to healthy! I am not a professional cook but I am a darn good home cook! Love spending time with my family, Disneyland, camping, photography, and of course baking and cooking!
My favorite things to cook
Cooking traditional mexican recipes are what I love the best. I simply love my heritage and try my best to keep it going with the generations since my great, great, grandma recently passed! I also enjoy new recipes every now and then!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking Tamales durning Christmas with my family and my husbands family. I always try to do stuff for the kids in my family like baking for Halloween with pumkin carving and cider!
My cooking triumphs
Learning how to cook from the region of Mexico my husbands family is from. YUMMY!
