I am married to a great man. We've been married over a year. I've known him a long time. We are living in Iowa for the moment. I'm starting my own business. and Getting things in order. Love to Bake, cook ..It's my passion, that and being with family.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make a lot of Central American dishes, (mainly from Guatemala) I will be sharing some that I have made, and hope that it will help someone expand their horizons. I cook Italian, mexican, and I love to BBQ..My husband likes to dice, and help me prep. :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making Tortillas..:) I love to make home made tortillas, and make Tamales. We make them in Banana leaves. So, it's different from the traditional corn husk way. We fix supper together. My husband helps cut, and dice and slice. :) I love to bake as well. I make a mean 3 leches cake! (3 milk ) I also love to make rice. I add so many different things to it.
My cooking triumphs
My Rice, My Beans. I make the best beans from what all my friends, family and neighbors tell me. I make rice with meats, veggies, and even Rice pudding. I've won awards for my Dishes. I make good tacos, and torillas. Marinated pork, and green salsa (salsa verde) I have been told that I should sell my recipe :)
My cooking tragedies
I haven't had many. I remember when I first learned to make a chicken dish. Called Mole. I made it to spicy!..lol but, I am now in-famous with my friends, and family and neighbors. they come and ask me now when am I going to make more mole and pollo (chicken)..and of course, when I was first learning to make tortillas. But, I know how to now.:)
