I really enjoy cooking for my family. I love hosting holiday dinners at my house for our family and friends. I like to try out new recipes and invite family over to eat.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook authentic New Mexico family dishes handed down to me by my mom and grandmother. I also love to bake desserts such as cakes, pies, and cookies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother and her sisters use to get together and make tamales every Christmas season. I try to carry this on this with my daughters and sisters now when possible. I also spend a full day of making all the cookies and treats for Christmas. I did this with my kids and now have grandkids to keep it going.
My cooking tragedies
I don't do well with recipes that call for yeast. I keep trying though.
