About this Cook
I am happily married to my night in shinning amour and we have two daughters! Although I am a busy mom, wife, office manager, and motorcycle group organizer...one of my greatest passions is, and always has been cooking and baking. I hope to one day open a Bed and Breakfast with a bakery and catering event place in beautiful Colorado!
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy baking mostly since I have been doing that from a very young age. I come from a long line of fantastic cooks, and have learned many things from them. But anytime spent in a kitchen for me is always a joy!
My favorite family cooking traditions
The one tradition that we have is our traditional Christmas Eve feast that combines my two heritages of Lebanese and Mexican! We have a full spread of Pasole, Tamales, Enchiladas, beans and rice with Flan and Soaps. When in New Mexico, we also have Kibi and cabbage rolls with the feast!
My cooking triumphs
A few years ago I wanted to try my hand at cakes! So I took a couple of cake decorating classed, stocked up on supplies, and Ta Da! Instant success! I have made several event cakes to include a 3 tier wedding cake! It is determinately a lot of work, but something I LOVE to do!
My cooking tragedies
Too many to name! Whenever I want to try something new...there is always a bit of trial and error until I perfect it and make it my own! And, ironically, I CANNOT bake canned biscuits! They come out like hockey pucks! But if they are from scratch, they are always perfect! Hmmmm, go figure!

Garlic Mashed Potatoes
This was by far the BEST recipe I have tried for mashed potatoes! It went perfectly with my Easter ham and old fashioned green beans! I will not be able to make plain mashed potatoes again! And this was so easy too!

Baked Ham
Because I didn't have any pineapples or cherries for my Easter ham, I tried this recipe instead. The combined flavors of the cloves and brown sugar came through perfectly and it was so moist! The family loved it!
