About this Cook
I love gardening, crafts, being outdoors, camping, hiking... For me-- the more cooks the better. I like to adjust recipes to make them more healthy by cutting back on fats and sugar wherever possible and adding more herbs and veggies.
My favorite things to cook
My sister and I love to get together and try out new recipes with plenty of herbs, spices, and not-so-common ingredients. My husband and I love to try almost anything Mexican, and I like to bake, but haven't for a while until recently.
My favorite family cooking traditions
*making Mexican food with my husband. *Christmas treat-making day with several sisters and mom. *Big pot luck family feasts for nearly all major holidays.
My cooking triumphs
Seafood stoup ala Rachel Ray. My husbands recipe for shrimp cocktail-gets a lot of requests for a delicious healthy appetizer at Thanksgiving and New Years.
My cooking tragedies
Burnt beans!! I need to stop getting distracted and turn down the heat! Also getting my husband to use a recipe for Mexican cooking.

Three Chile Dry Roasted Tomatillo Salsa
Great recipe! Love the dry roasting and mix of chiles. My husband is mexican- we've discovered that serrano peppers often give a better flavor than jalapenos alone in general. Also, if you want to avoid the chile haze in your house you can roast the ingredients on the grill. Just dont lose your serranos and garlic through the grates! Use aluminum foil or a pan. For a delicious milder version of green salsa you can use all or part poblano peppers which are traditionally peeled after roasting. Dunk them in ice water to help loosen the skins and don't stress out if you can't get it all.
