I am a mother of 3 and I love great tasting food. That is why when I cook I usually add other things to a recipe or make-up my own.
My favorite things to cook
Enchiladas are my fave food so I make them often, I also like to make lasagna. I make cakes for family birthdays and they usually turn out great and everyone loves them. Cakes are a recent thing for me, I just decided one day to start making them. I also like making any kind of dessert, yummy!!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love Thanksgiving and Christmas. They are my favorite because my mom and my sisters and I are all in the kitchen cooking the big dinners together. We always make Turkey(my fave) for Thanksgiving and Turkey and Ham for Christmas. My mom and I also make candy every Christmas since I was about 5. The best is our almond roca, everyone loves it.
My cooking triumphs
I recently made 3 roasts on the grill that turned out fabulous. I used a dry rub on them and put them in the oven at 250 for 4 hrs then grilled them for 1 hr, putting bbq sauce on them the last 30 min of cooking. Yum Yum!!
My cooking tragedies
The birthday cake I made for my daughter last year looked pretty but I made the mistake of putting cold filling in the cake and then frosting it and when the filling came to room temp. the frosting started to slide off the side of the cake. Ooops!!!
