I am married to an excellent man. His family is from Mexico and I have learned fabulous alternatives to cooking what I considered to be traditional "American" cuisine. We have a family consisting of 1 dog, 2 cats and 1 fish.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking desserts. I also love learning new ways to spice up traditional cuisines.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Growing up, I loved getting together for holidays and baking with my family. Being part of a new family with different cooking traditions, I am enjoying the melding of both cultures into what I hope to be a new set of cooking traditions for us when we start our own family.
My cooking triumphs
Some of my bests include my slow-cooker chili, chicken parmigiana, 7-layer mexican dip and my homemade new york style cheesecake.
My cooking tragedies
I have attempted many recipes and failed, that I don't know where to begin. My hopes from being a member here are that I am able to expand my abilities and learn to improvise.
