Mexican Night
About this Cook
I am 38 and married to a wonderful man and I have 3 beautiful children. Since I have joined All Recipes I have had to change my diet alot. I am now more into healthy foods and cooking. I am everyday reading up on alternative natural ingredients and oils for cooking. I have incorperated more fish and chicken in my diet and have omitted pork and red meat all together. My reasons for for this change was my health, I was getting sick for unexplained reasons 2 to 3 times a month and I had researched everything I knew to, and even had my house inspected for black mold. It was when I learned about some of the health hazzards that comes with certain foods that I began to slowly change my diet. I am still on this journey and learning more and more everyday, and I still love cooking. I would say that I have more of a passion for cooking now then I ever had before. I now promote healthy organic food alternatives as much as I can, I would love to see everybody eat better for their health.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking Mexican and grilling everything that can be grilled. Just about anything, I love the finished product.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking with my children and teaching them how to cook. They just love it and I love it because they will be able to cook for themselves when they are all grown up.
My cooking triumphs
Anytime I go into the kitchen and throw something together and it turns out great. See I am not a throw food together kind of gal,I usually mess it up and no one will eat it. I do better following a recipe, but I am trying to work on that and I am getting better with time.
My cooking tragedies
I actually have had many and could not give details about what I made because I strangely can not or will not remember what I made. Its probably a good thing (that I have a memory lapse) because my tragedy's are equivelant to pig slop.

Candied Sweet Potatoes
I made these for Thanksgiving dinner and they were absolutely wonderful. I would always use canned sweet potatoes and i really was not pleased with them at all. For anyone who reads this use fresh sweet potatoes and this recipe and enjoy. Thanks!

Absolutely Ultimate Potato Soup
Oh my gosh, this soup is so good and flavorful. I made it just as it says to, except I did not puree it. I am not a big fan of mooshed potatoes. It still turned out great. My kids even loved it. I will make this again. It needs NO improvement what so ever.
