i am a mommy to a beautiful and happy baby girl who adds laughter and love to every day of my life. i like to cook and bake, but wish i could do it more often. my wish is to open a successful bakery someday.
My favorite things to cook
i love baking...cupcakes, cookies, breads, cakes, anything. i love using my slow cooker, especially to make the chicken taco soup on this site!
My favorite family cooking traditions
my family is salvadorean so sometimes my mom makes a classic dish called pupusas...basically stuffed corn tortillas. you can stuff them with cheese, beans, pork. they are a bit cumbersome to make, but so worth it!
My cooking triumphs
there is a restaurant in my hometown that serves the most delicious seafood pasta jambalaya. i found the recipe online and decided to try to replicate it. it had A LOT of ingredients, and took a while to make. BUT it tasted exactly the same as the original. i was proud!
My cooking tragedies
when i was younger, i tried to make rice (on the stovetop) and it would never turn out right. ever since then i haven't attempted it, not even in the microwave. recently, i got brave enough to try it in the microwave and it was good. the more times i make it, the better i get.
