I've been married 20 years and raised two boys. My husband and I are active, we like to hunt, hike and golf. I try to stay active, exercise
regularly and eat healthy. Allrecipes has really expanded my cooking range and the reviews are so helpful.
My favorite things to cook
Mexican food is #1 for my family. I also like to cook Italian food, and my mom's dishes are still the best. My husband has learned to never order Lasagna at restaurants since it's doesn't compare to Moms. I'm experimenting with desserts, and am really getting good at them.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Lasagna from Mom at Christmas, and her carrot cake. She still won't share the recipe.
My cooking triumphs
Carne Asada, the best spanish rice, killer fajitas. Jambalaya and Gumbo are my latest, I'm really getting into anything cajun.
My cooking tragedies
I decided to do a pineapple upsidedown cake for my husband, since he loves it. I used a springform pan, not realizing the butter/brown sugar mixture would leak out of the bottom. Needless to say, I started my oven on fire, had to air out my home with fans, but the cake tasted good!
