I grew up in Southern Colorado eating lots of Mexican food and beef. I love dreaming about recipes, especially desserts, and spend lots of time looking at new things to cook. The best meals for me are things that require little effort and stuff out of boxes and cans...but I love it when I can spend a lot of time on a new, challenging project.
My favorite things to cook
My specialty is desserts. I loooove desserts, ever since I was little. I would look at main dish recipes and just be disgusted. Now, I have evolved and love everything. Favorites: Black Forest Bar, Cupcakes, Deli sandwiches, Zucchini Bread, Mom's rolls, Breads, Italian dishes, Chili, Anything with chocolate, Mexican Food, Eggs with green chiles...
My favorite family cooking traditions
Zucchini Bread, Fruit (Candy) Cake, Fruit Cocktail Cookies, Mom's rolls, Mexican Wedding Cookies

My cooking tragedies
Those brownies I have never forgotten. I swapped the amount of butter and cocoa and they were rocks.
