About this Cook
I have always loved food. I used to cook for myself and my parents would always want a taste. My oldest sister would come and steal from my plate without me realizing it until I came back to my plate and found a big bite on anything I had prepared for myself. So I guess my family likes my cooking.
My favorite things to cook
I love trying new recipes, I love bbq'ing, but in Mexico that is something only men do. So usually I only watch and suggest, not my husband's favorite activity. I love curry, stir fry, and anything for entertainment.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas dinner has been the same for as long as I can remember. Now that I am married and spending Christmas only with my husband I cooked dinner with my mom on Skype. It was fun!
My cooking triumphs
My flan, made it for my parents in law and I think they loved it. It didn't last more than a day.
My cooking tragedies
Merengues, it was a rainy day and they say that eggs won't stay up on rainy days. I didn't listen and carried on with the recipe. Sure enough, the merengue burnt inside the oven and never got up. All to the trash!

Herb Rubbed Sirloin Tip Roast
Tasty but I used less salt because I didn't have Kosher salt. I used one teaspoon of salt and it was still a bit too salty.
