I am a full time working mom. I love to cook but don't always have the time so my crock pot is my best friend. I love allrecipes because there are so many different recipes that my family never gets bored with my cooking.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try new recipes. I don't worry about calories, just flavor. My favorites are BBQ, mexican and italian.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother's food. I was raised in the kitchen by her side. When I make her dishes, it is the best aroma in the world. It smells like home.
My cooking triumphs
My mother's lasagna. Everything is from scratch. It is my signature dish. My calabacitas. It took me years to perfect this recipe. Everyone requests it.
My cooking tragedies
Baked mac & cheese. I got the proportions wrong and it was terrible. The first time I attempted spanish rice. Baked salmon. Fish is so delicate.
