I am here to learn better ways to cook for my dollar and more from the basics with wonderful flavors; less out of the box!
My favorite things to cook
Soups and stews
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Christmas Eve, we have taco's. It's been that way since I was small. One year, we didn't have much else in the fridge other than a few tortilla's, some beans and some Gov't cheese... The taco tradition reminds our family where we came from and how we got here and that we didn't miss out on being a family by having less for a holiday. We found out we had more actually! Love.
My cooking triumphs
Soups and stews! Most of my friends want to come and have a bite at whatever I have created in that department! Very yummy!
My cooking tragedies
I can not bake to save my life... Cookies, cakes, breads... forget it! Altho, I do keep trying, again and again and again! My cookies now-a-days no longer resemble hockey pucks but I still can't seem to figure out how to get them to rise a little!
