I was born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico in the north valley. My hubby and I now have a house in Paradise Hills, which is still in Albuquerque, NM. My mom and step-dad recently passed away, 1 year, 1 month and 1 minute apart. Both on March 24th (her in 2009, him in 2010) I moved back in with them in 2001, I cooked and took care of them till the very end. So I had to make sure I cooked good food.
My favorite things to cook
I love making Homemade bread. I make chocolate covered strawberries for Valentines Day, which I sell. The 1st year I sold them I made $800. in 5 hours. I was still selling them for 4 days.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have pictures of my kids and granddaughters baking with my mom. We all picked out which recipe we love the most from her.
My cooking triumphs
What I make the best is the bread. I love making the chocolate covered strawberries with my granddaughters, we always eat the messed up ones, and sell the pretty ones.
My cooking tragedies
I can't make rice too good, always undercooked or overcooked. Just can't get it just right.
