About this Cook
professional, Mom of two children
My favorite things to cook
Mexican, pasta dishes, cakes for family birthdays/special occasions, cookies
My favorite family cooking traditions
Nowadays I like to experiment and try all sorts of new things. I like to try new spices/flavors. My kids will try anything I make at least once.
My cooking triumphs
Anytime my kids tell me that I should quit my job and be a chef, and several recipes on this site have earned me such kind praise. They include garlic cheddar chicken, buffalo wing chili, chili cheese fries and various cakes and cookies.
My cooking tragedies
No real catastrophes, but many minor failed attempts according to the family, lol

Cinnamon Mocha Sheet Cake
Mine came out dry so next time I will try taking out of the oven a little early to see if that helps

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake
Made this minus the raisins only in a 9 x 13 pan and used orange cream cheese frosting from this site. I didn't get to try a piece because everyone at the function I brought it to raved about it and didn't save me a piece!

Whole Grain Breakfast Cookies
Substituted honey for the agave nectar. The dough was rather crumbly so I had a bit of trouble with it. I still found the taste appealing,and even used the crumbly baked bits as 'granola' over yogurt
