About this Cook
I'm a new mom... staying at home with the little one. My husband and I love to travel internationally, and I love to recreate the culinary masterpieces we've tasted abroad.
My favorite things to cook
Authentic ethnic foods. Especially foods from places I've been - Central American, Mexican, Italian...
My cooking tragedies
The first year my husband and I were married I attempted to bake him a chocolate cake from a scratch family recipe for his birthday. I misread 2/3 cup cocoa for 2 TBSP cocoa. I do remember thinking the color was way too light, but I read the recipe again... incorrectly again... and it was awful. In a panic, I scrambled to make him a second, only to run out of sugar.

Seasoned Oyster Crackers
This was good, but left a greasy feeling in my mouth. I made it again the same way but baked it in the oven at 300 for about 20 minutes, stirring twice. That helped the crackers absorb the oil and didn't taste so oily. I also used only one pk of oyster crackers & made up the difference with pretzels & cheezits. Very good that way!
