My favorite things to cook
My paternal grandmother and my mother taught me how to cook Mexican food, and that's my favorite thing to make. I also like baking desserts - watching the transformation of goo going into the oven for a time and then coming out as some wonderful, mouthwatering dessert!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Not many in my family can cook Mexican, so it's a lot like Thanksgiving when we do. We set a date, then all get together for a grand meal. The place comes alive with everyone visiting, laughing, watching and waiting for the special meal. Mom and I cook and we usually have a couple of relatives that want to help, so they chop. As you know, hours of cooking and boom! It's eaten in 15 minutes! Later, everyone goes home with a full belly and extras (for their freezer) to tide them over until the next gathering, which is hopefully not too far in the future!
