About this Cook
Married with two childreN :)
My favorite things to cook
Anything that includes green chile or that might tempt my sweet tooth
My favorite family cooking traditions
Hispanic food is the name of the game in my family.. everything from Chicken enchilada caserole to pumpkin empanadas.. gotta love it
My cooking triumphs
My biggest triumph was making fudge in NM. The high altitudes messed me up big time!! However if you consider about 2 degrees less temperature for every 1000 miles of altitude..you can get the job done.. Took me 8 attemps to figure it out..
My cooking tragedies
Lots of tragedies to talk about but none that I didnt triumph over eventually..

Peanut Butter Haystacks
Dont make this recipe without adding about1 cup of marshamellows after melting the butterscotch and mixing in the peanut butter... I have a family member that has been making these for years and WOW the Mellows make then 10 times better!

Blueberry Pie
Excellent and easy to make... I did use the extra cornstarch and I had to reduce the heat and time since I am very high altitude... but WOW ..delicioso!!!
