I love spending time with my family, and doing things with my boys and my granddaughter. I work so I like to try quick and easy dinners on the days I work and something a little more daring on the days I have off. You get sick of having the same things over and over all the time.
My favorite things to cook
I have alot of favorite things I like to cook. My husband's family is originally from Mexico so I love learning how to make all the things they show me, like, chicken mole, simple tacos, taquitos, abuelita's pinto beans are the best with some warm tortillas.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite family tradition is split between cooking the meals side-by-side with my husband and baking cookies with my youngest son and granddaughter.
My cooking triumphs
If my family enjoys what is prepared for the meal I consider it a triumph, but it also helps when they ask you to make certain things over and over again.
My cooking tragedies
When we were putting on a birthday party for one of the boys some of the salads were tasting quite bland and was too late to fix, and also took a stab at making a tres leche cake, it was so sweet you couldn't even swallow it.
