About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
My husband is from Mexico, and I am from the "greater Seattle area" so I cook a mix of traditional Mexican food and American classics. I try to keep things on the healthy side when possible, substituting ground turkey and chicken when possible, low fat milk and yogurt, etc. I make alot of favorites from when I was young for my kids and my generally open and adventurous (at least when it comes to trying new food) husband, and not always so adventurous little boys!

Zucchini Pancakes
Very, very good. I added a handful of blueberries and the kids were so busy objecting to the blueberries, that they didn't even notice the hiding zucchini (who's weird kids are these anyways, who doesn't like blueberries? ;) I added maybe a tablespoon of cinnamon, tasted like blueberry zucchini bread! I made a simple sugar and blueberry syrup to spread on top, so good. The kids just put normal pancake syrup and ate them up. My husband said these were "BUENISIMO!" (literally), even after I giggled and told him we were having vegetables for breakfast ;) This recipe is a keeper, great way to use up the bounty of zucchini since there are only so many times you want to eat zucchini bread (and I love me some zucchini bread). Thank you!

Tres Leches Cake
Great cake, much better than store bought. I made this recipe for my husband's birthday, who was born and raised in Mexico, and he loves it! I made a double layer cake with fresh strawberries and whipcream frosting in the middle and on top. I didn't have problems with the "chewy lumps" you just have to make sure everything is well mixed. I added confectioners sugar to the whipcream frosting, but granulated is fine in the cake. The flour can form lumps when it's mixed with the yolks, I just mixed it well with a whisk. Very tasty, not too milky and perfect birthday treat! Thanks!

Best Carrot Cake Ever
Good, but not the *best* carrot cake. This may be due to me not waiting the hour recommended to leave the carrots and brown sugar mixture. I would definately leave it for the full hour. This maybe doesn't have enough spices, it lacked a little flavor. But, overall, good. I left out the pineapple and used cream cheese frosting. Thanks!
