I'm a busy person. I recently got married in July 2007. I'm a full time engineer and part time real estate agent and I also own my own photography company. Sounds crazy, but with my busy career, I believe that my husband and love ones deserve the best of me. I show this through cooking! I love throwing parties and it always involve food!
My favorite things to cook
Italian and Mexican Food
My favorite family cooking traditions
For the last 3 years, it has now been a tradition for me to cook Thanksgiving
My cooking triumphs
1) Cooking Thanksgiving for 30+ people for the last 3 years.
2) Holding my first Mexican Fiesta. I never made Carne Asada before, but two people requested it (threatened to not come if I didn't have it!!!). So I found the Taco Carne Asada recipe from this site. I was told it was the best they've ever had!!! One guy even emailed my husband to thank me for the best meal he has had in months!
My cooking tragedies
An "integrated" cheesecake recipe...let's just say it looked like a milkshake!!! I found the recipe in a magazine. I'm typically 99.99% good at following recipes. I don't know what happened there. I'm so glad I found a good cheesecake recipe from this site though!!! I had to make it up to my friend!!!
