Gammi & KK
About this Cook
I'm a young 50's gammi. Work hard and love life!
My favorite things to cook
Mexican food. I still make homemade flour tortillas!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Has to be making tamales at Christmas time with my four sisters.
My cooking triumphs
Watching the smiles and pleasing looks on my family's faces when they are eating my food and saying "tastes like more"!
My cooking tragedies
Trying to find an excellent banana bread recipe. I like the taste of lotsa bananas, nuts, moist, but not too moist, and cakey. NEVERMIND, I found it right here on Allrecipes!

Slow Cooker Beef Pot Roast
I followed the recipe but the roast I cooked was boneless. It was okay...the meat was a little stringy and chewy. Won't make again.

Sour Cream and Chive Mashed Potatoes
I loved these mashed potatoes. So easy to make and delicious. This is the first time I did not use an entire stick of butter in my mashed potatoes. I am sure the Yukons had a lot to do with that. I left a little bit of the peel and they turned out fantastic. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I will use it everytime I make mashed potatoes!

Irresistible Irish Soda Bread
I thought it was delicious as did the rest of my family. I even took some to work and was told it was the best Irish Soda bread they had ever eaten. I did add raisins, and before serving just a little smear of butter. It was yummy. Thanks for the recipe! I will make it every St. Patty's day.
