My husbands favorite picture.
About this Cook
I am a married mother of 2 beautiful daughters 8 and 1 1/2 years old. My husband is from Mexico, so I really enjoy cooking Mexican dishes and trying out new things, using my family as guinea pigs!
My favorite things to cook
Anything Mexican and Southern. Refried beans, tostadas, empanadas, soups, stews, fried chicken, meatloaf, desserts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Getting together with my mom and sister and sister-in-law and making the Thanksgiving and/or Christmas menu. My mom doles out the responsibilities, and for some reason, I always end up making the desserts! I think its because my sister is better at meats and veggies and my sister-in-law is better at...well...not much, but she tries...
My cooking triumphs
The first time i made a Thanksgiving dinner by myself. I made everything: the turkey, the stuffing, the potatoes, all the other things, and the desserts. It was really hard work but very rewarding to see everyone eating and really enjoying the food. I think next time i will plan a little farther ahead since i did everything in 1 day. This year, I will start the day before chopping and dicing and pre-measuring all my dry ingredients.
My cooking tragedies
The first and only time i made tamales. They were horrible! I put too much masa (which is the dough like substance) and too little meat. They turned out so terrible, and there I was, stuck with 50 tamales that noone would touch!

Cabbage Rolls II
This sounds alot like my mothers recipe except the portions are totally different. I have made this many times and I always have lots of leftover sauce. So here is my sauce recipe and I hope it helps everyone who says theirs turned out slightly dry. i use 3 cans tomato sauce, 5 Tblsp. brown sugar, 5 Tblsp. lemon juice, 5 Tblsp. corn starch and 1 can of water (use tomato sauce can.) And we place our cabbage rolls in a cake pan, pour sauce over rolls, cover with aluminum and bake on 350 for about 2 hours. Hope this helps!

Easy Peach Cobbler
My mother has been making this dish for over 30 years. The only difference I see is that she uses a whole stick of butter and she doesn't cream them together. She melts the butter in the baking dish, then adds the crust ingredients and spoons in the peaches, not using all of the juice. I also sprinkle the top with a little sugar about 45 minutes in so that the top will get crispy and golden.

Baked Corn
I have been making this recipe for years, but i always use a 1/2 stick of butter and a whole small container or sour cream and depending or how bready i want it, i might use 1 or maybe 2 boxes of corn bread mix. but it is delicious either way!
