I'm an Art teacher who likes all kinds of self expression. I believe cooking is an expressive art. Food is a fuel for our bodies to exist. I love to eat great tasting food that is also healthy. I also double love it if the presentation is pretty. :)
My favorite things to cook
My natural instinct is Mexican, learned from my mom who was an amazing cook who never had to measure. I also like Mediterranean, omelets, french, and finding healthy alternative ways to cook common foods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Chicken caldo, carne guisada, rice, beans, gorditas...etc
My cooking triumphs
Mexican in general.
My cooking tragedies
It took me at least 4x to completely fail at cooking my mom's mexican rice before I finally got it. Only once I tried to make a cheesecake and it sunk in the center. Not so natural at baking... :/
