About this Cook
Stay at home mom, still learning to balance caring for children and my love of cooking good food!
My favorite things to cook
Latin dishes. My mother-in-law has taught me well. I love it when my husband says that my food is as good as his mom's.
My cooking triumphs
Cooking an entire Thanksgiving meal for 25! All by myself! And it tasted good!
My cooking tragedies
Slow cooker ribs. Somebody told me to put ribs into the slow cooker with BBQ sauce and let them cook all day. BIG mistake. they were burnt and HORRIBLE! I couldn't eat ribs for years without remembering the smell and taste of the burnt ones.

Honey Baked Chicken II
I very much enjoyed this recipe. I didn't have curry powder, so I subbed in chili powder. I do think that the next time I will double the spice though. Also, I halved the butter and think I still could use less. Served with cheesy grits and asparagus, delish!

Garbanzo Bean Chocolate Cake (Gluten Free!)
this was delicious. I think next time though, I'll add some applesauce to make it more fudgey. This was dense and flaky, but good.

Vegan Chocolate Cake
I thought it was good, but only for 1-2 days after I baked it, then it gets dry. All the book club ladies really enjoyed it though!
