I am a very happy newlywed and my husband likes to joke that he married me for my cooking - or at least that that sealed the deal. I love to cook and to bake. When I make something new that comes out great it's like creating art that everyone loves! I'm still adjusting to my new role as an "Army Wife" but I feel that my life is very blessed and I am very lucky to have such a brave and loving husband. We are also the proud parents of a fiesty Australian Cattle Dog named Dusti and I even enjoy making her homemade treats.
My favorite things to cook
Mexican dishes - particularly Enchiladas! Chicken Adobo, Salmon Patties, Roast and Pork Chops are a staple in my house.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year growing up my family made tamales at Christmas time. We always made so many that we'd have a freezer full all year round!
My cooking triumphs
The best dish I ever made was something I made up as I went with chicken, herbs, spices, and rice. Simple but flawless... my fiance raved that he would have paid a pretty penny for such a feast in a restaurant.
My cooking tragedies
One time when I had to make dinner for guests on last minute notice and was rushing I undercooked the fried chicken which turned out hot pink!
