Well, the first recipe was okay and I could not figure out what I was missing.  So I finally took my stubborn butt to my mother in laws and asked her if I could watch her step-by-step make it, so I could figure out what I was doing wrong.  She is an awesome cook the only problems is… MORE

It took me a while to come up with this recipe, and it is now one that is requested often.  I first had this at my mother-in-laws, and it was delicious.  I tried to make it and it was a disaster, the meatballs fell apart and I ended up with hamburger soup!  I asked her for her… MORE

Since I was a kid I can remember standing on the stool next to my mom pouring sugar, flour or whatever she would give me into a bowl.  We bake cookies, bars, pies or whatever she felt like making.  My favorite thing to do was frost the sugar cookies....and maybe eat some of it! … MORE

I remember the first time my husband offered me a bowl of ceviche, which had several pretty colors; although scared me at the thought of un-cooked fish!  Then he started to tell me about how the lime juice cooks the fish, now if that wasnt one of the craziest thing I had ever heard I didnt… MORE

I remember the first time my husband took me to this little mexican store and ordered Carnitas.  I wasn't really sure what to expect becasue I had never really eaten to much mexican food, but as he raved about how wonderful these things were I figured i'd give them a try.  Just before… MORE

First take the Chile Rellenos and roast them on a cormal until the skin turns black on all sides.  Once they are all black place them in a paper bag for about 10 minutes.  While they are cooling take about 1 cup flour to start with, add a little salt and pepper to… MORE

This is the most wonderful meat I have ever eaten!  I never heard of Arrachera until my husband and I started going to all these little mexican stores around here that he knew of.  I still to this day can not find anything like this at the local or big name grocery stores around my… MORE

So almost every time we go out to eat my husband loves to get these little sopes.  At first I was a little hesitant about them, but after taking a bite they are delicious!  It's like a thick tortilla topped with what you like.  Sometime we use Cecina, Chorizo, Pinto Beans, well… MORE

I was sitting around the other day thinking back to my childhood.  There were so many good memories.  I grew up on a small farm, we had pigs, chickens, dogs, mice, and a cat.  We had a pretty large peice of land, my dad would have to bail the hay and me and my sister would jump… MORE

About Me
I love to cook, its relieving after a long day. I'm the mother to 4 beautiful kids and 1 stepson. I work full-time and go to college also. Gets crazy sometimes, but I try to cook as much as possible.
My favorite things to cook
I love a homecooked meal at the end of the day. I have many favorites but some of the ones my mom taught me were tater tot hotdish (I know simple but good!), steak and gravy, and chocolate chip cookies. My ex-mother in law is from Mexico so some of my favorite things to cook that she taught me are posole, carne en su jugo, tres leches pastel, ceviche and I could go on. I have truly come to love cooking mexican food and learning about their culture. It opened my eyes to unique flavors and I love trying new foods now.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year we get together before christmas and have a baking day. By the end of the day we end up with about 30 different cookies, bars, cakes..etc to hand out in cookie baskets to family members.
