Iam 50 year old wife,mother and grandmother of 2 beautiful granddaugters and a gorgeous 3 month old grandson. I work full time as a kitchen supervisor at a youth detention center. My staff and I take pride in what we serve the youth. We are always experimenting and love what we do. Many of the youth say they wish we would open a restaurant or have a drive through window!!!
My favorite things to cook
Mexican food. Chili rellenos, chimichangas, spanish rice. I love to make good old fashion homestyle food. Meatloaf, cabbage rolls, turkey dinners.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving is important at our house. We have all the traditional favorites. Turkey, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, greenbean casserole, salads and homemade pies and rolls.
My cooking triumphs
breads I was in my 40's before I mastered bread making. Now family members ask me to make bread all the time. It makes me feel great that I finally acomplished that.
My cooking tragedies
I hate it when I make a bundt cake and it sticks to the bottom of the pan. My family always holds their breath when I turn that cake pan over because I have had many mishaps with that and thrown away many cakes and pans in frustration!!! ha ha
