About this Cook
Love cooking a meal from scratch, I can spend the whole day in the kitchen cooking and trying all kind of new recipes. (Do not like doing the dishes) Fresh ingredients are a must in my kitchen.
My favorite things to cook
Real Mexican food, I love to do research about Authentic Mexican cuisine. The Highlight of my cooking experience was meeting Mrs. Diana Kennedy when she kindly signed my collection of her books and talk to her about this rich cuisine.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking Christmas Dinner. My husband bakes a boneless stuffed turkey.

Poblano Chile Pepper Soup
I added extra cream and a small cooked zucchini because the peppers where too hot! But overall good taste.

Cinnamon Rolls III
I wish, I could give it more stars, they are so easy to make.I made some changes like, 2 egg whites instead of a whole egg, splenda instead of regular sugar, margarine instead of butter, fat free instant pudding, light cream cheese and reduced some of the other sugars. Even with all those changes they were picture perfect and soft, yummy, just like the ones in the mall. I put in the freezer half of them to bake Sunday morning. You should give it a try. I used the bread machine in the dough setting. I even took pictures and send it to my sisters to show off!!
