My name is Olivia and I'm currently living in Northern California with my husband. I've enjoyed cooking since I was a little girl, when I would sit and watch either my father or my grandmother work their ways around the kitchen. At this moment in time, I'm currently a "housewife"... so I get to create & cook meals on a regular basis!
My favorite things to cook
I don't really have a favorite. My hubby always wants me to make Mexican food (tacos, enchiladas, empanadas, etc.) I enjoy trying out new recipes and tweeking them once I've tried the original, to my likeness. Being able to recreate a recipe and see others enjoy it always puts a smile on my face=)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My absolute favorite family tradition is making lumpias with my dad & sister. I always have a great time cooking side by side with my family!
My cooking triumphs
Anytime my family/friends rave about a dish that I have made, I percieve that as a triumph!
My cooking tragedies
I can't exactly think of any cooking "tragedies"... however, when my husband doesn't go back for seconds, I take it to heart (I don't tell him that though lol).
