About this Cook
My health forces me to be a low-sodium chef, so I tweak everything to be low-sodium/high flavor and absolutely amazing!
My favorite things to cook
Tamales, lasagna, Dolma, Pozole... ok, pretty much anything Mexican and Italian.
My favorite family cooking traditions
HAH...cooking better than my mom. Otherwise, there are no traditions.
My cooking triumphs
The first time I made tamales from scratch, I had a man from Mexico tell me "If you ever meet my mom, don't you dare tell her that I said this... Your tamales are so much better than hers!" WIN!
My cooking tragedies
Gravy....I can't make a good brown gravy for anything. The first attempt at it tasted like burned flour....and I plated everyone's food until all the food was gone so.....everyone was hungry because nobody wanted to eat after that. :(

Chocolate Chip Dream
I only rate 4 stars because I had to tweak it based on ingredients I had on hand. No coconut because nobody in my house likes it. No Maraschino cherries so I used frozen black cherries quartered. No sweetened condensed milk so I used a substitute (also tweaked) which I found online. (2 eggs, about 7T sugar , 1/2t baking powder, 1/4t salt, 2T flour, 1t vanilla...mix and use in place of sweetened, condensed milk). My husband said with a grin "I had one of your diabetic coma bars. I hate cherries but they worked actually very well in that." My husband typically doesn't like ANYTHING sweet...so seriously, this recipe is a total keeper!
