About this Cook
I cooked for my family growing up- comfort foods and mexican foods. I'm a newlywed now and am learning to not only cook every meal, every day, but to enjoy making new things!

SPAGHETTI!!! Or maybe that's my favorite thing to eat. I enjoy baking desserts mainly... I feel that's the area I most exceed in.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is mexican and I love that family gatherings are often centered around food.
My cooking triumphs
Anything that makes my husband say "WOW" To date: Beer Battered Crepes Grilled Chicken Chicken Enchillada Casserole

Chicken and Apple Curry
This was my first time making curry and I was very impressed. Four stars only because I used this a base recipe. I read other's suggestions and doubled both the 'soup' and curry powder. I also used coconut milk instead of milk. I cooked it with chicken tenderloins- they were a little bland and I think next time i'll cube them. Also I threw in a dash of red pepper for spice. The apples added a great flavor- kind of tangy! I used Granny Smith. Next time I'm going to throw in cooked potatoes to replicate the curry I eat at my favorite Thai restaurant. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!

Cream of Chicken Breasts
This is such a great comfort food. For a creamier, yet more tangy, flavor, substitute the milk with sour cream!

Cream Puff Cake
I made the filling by itself and froze several bags of it. I use it to fill crepes and plain cream puffs. It's good to have this on store for emergencies!
