About this Cook
I am a mother of two and a devoted wife. I love to take care of my family but they can be so picky. I have to find many other receipes because most of what I love they don't always want to eat. I try to be creative and fun with my food.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook with vegetables. I enjoy cooking quick and easy food, with my career and schooling I dont have too much time. On weekends, its a different story.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mexican food is part of my culture, but I love to eat everything else. My favorite food is Chinese and Japenese, I cant make it to save my life. I figure , leave it to the experts. I am trying to concentrate on healthy foods.
My cooking triumphs
I have made philipino food, such as lumpia, chicken adobo, and turon. I have made cuban food such as fried bananas, safron rice, arroz con pollo, and for dessert coconut arroz con leche. I like to experiment with food. Though I am critical on my own food.
My cooking tragedies
I rarely measure, more like eye balling it and of course tasting helps.

Tofu Tacos I
I thought this receipe was great. I wanted to try something better that meat. Wow what a hit in my family. You can also mix up some lean ground meat to make it a little thicker... but what a sensation.
