Single mother to one daughter, Only daughter to my mother, and sister to two wonderful brothers. I began cooking in 2008 when my mom took ill with Breast Cancer. Although her passion is cooking, so was mine. She is a phenomenal cook and I aspired to at least reach mid-level to her and I think at times I am successful. I love learning all I can from both my mom and the Internet who has taught me so much and I live each day grateful that I have the ability to log onto my computer and savor the world as well with the plethora of cooking ideas and recipes. We are all so very lucky and blessed each day of our lives.
My favorite things to cook
Desserts. Allrecipes is definitely my "go to" place when I am in a pinch and know that I will certainly find something delicious to bake.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sunday dinners; Thanksgiving; and celebrating birthdays.
My cooking triumphs
I made Mexican tamales (with the help of the Internet/YouTube, and when I served them to my mom, she told me, "these are better than mine." I knew instantly, that I was going places :)
My cooking tragedies
To be honest with everyone on the site when I began cooking for the family I would taste my food and then say to myself, "NOW I have to eat this," and I don't like it. But I never received any rejections and everyone ate my food because they loved me. Now they ask for certain dishes and when about am I going to bake or cook them something they like to eat.
