I am a counselor and life coach, but more importantly, I am a born-again Christian and newlywed minister's wife interested in all things hospitality. I love to serve and minister to others out of my love for God, since he sent his Son to offer me forgiveness for my sins through Jesus' death and resurrection--praise God!
I love to learn new recipes and cooking techniques, especially of the quick, easy, and cheap variety. We tend to entertain a fair share, so finding tips and tricks on cooking, cleaning, and entertaining is a hobby of mine of late.
My favorite things to cook
Hmm...let's see...quesadillas, grilled ham and cheese (hubbie's favorite), pancit with bico (a Filipino dish), stuffed chicken, spaghetti with meat sauce (Mom's recipe), green chili enchiladas (a New Mexico staple), mini meatloaves (good Kraft recipe), farmer's omlett, sausage and saurkraut, and more... We love variety, so I try to mix it up every week with recipes from different cultures. And I use garlic and pepper in just about everything.
My cooking triumphs
I learned how to boil water about ten years ago (not even kidding) and now I can tell the difference in dried spices by the smell and I know what a roux is... Huge learning curve in recent years!
