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.
