About this Cook
I work for a 5 star resort as a cook however, I mostly like to cook at home. I love combining drastic ingredients such as sweet salty and spicy. a good example of this would be Thai food. Other than that I am just a happy girl that loves to go to school, cook/bake, swim, exercise, spend time with her family, dance and go to Disneyland!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake desserts mostly but I also love to cook. I love using exotic ingredients such as spices, vegetables, fruits, milk, etc. My favorite is mediterreanean,Latin, carribean and asian ingredietns.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am Mexican so religion is a big part of my family. We are big on family gatherings during holidays like Thanksgiving, christmas, Easter, Birthdays, etc.
My cooking triumphs
My article on the Orange County register, creations at the resort.
My cooking tragedies
too many during my experimenting times, which is almost always. Trial and error is the best teacher =)

Honey Lime Chicken Wings
My chicken wings came out horrible but that was my fault. I baked them and tried to get them crispy but instead the chicken just ended up coming out like rubber, so be careful if you do bake. However, the sauce was delicious! I added soy sauce to it and a little bit of ground pepper flakes to wake up the sauce. Will use this sauce recipe again =)

Romantic Chicken with Artichokes and Mushrooms
I really loved this simple recipe idea! The best recipes are made with simple natural ingredients and this is one of them I did make a few changes but regardless I love the idea! Thank you! My whole family loved it!

Holiday Left-Over Sweet Potato Cake
My goodness these were perfect! I was skeptical about the beer that my husband happened to be drinking when I was making it, but oh my we're they delicoous! I'm sure any milk in place of beer would do just as well though.

Something about the grill's heat brings out the best flavor in the simplest chicken recipe.
