About this Cook
Stay at home mom with 3 kids (1 boy and 2 girls)
My favorite things to cook
Dinners, Desserts (anything chocolate), Holiday Meals.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Grandmother and Mother taught me how to make pies. Home cooking is a family tradition. I serve my family a home cooked meal at least 6 nights a week.
My cooking triumphs
I enjoy making Thanksgiving dinner every year by myself. From the turkey to the fudge, I enjoy every minute of it and my family enjoys devouring it.
My cooking tragedies
None. Knock on wood. I have always made it a point to follow recipes to the T. So far everything has worked out well!

Caldo de Res (Mexican Beef Soup)
This is similar to the caldo recipe that was handed down in my husband's family. The only difference is their recipe doesnt include tomatoes. Very good on a cold winter day. It is also easy to make in a crock pot. Just skip browning the beef and onions if you are in a hurry, throw all the ingredients together into a crock pot and let it cook on high for 8 hours.

Easy to Make Ginger Cookies
Followed recipe exactly. These were very dry and crumbly. The taste is ok. I am going to add allrecipes /sugar-cookie-frosting icing to them to jazz them up a bit.

Fluffy Pancakes
This recipe has freed me from buying boxed pancake mix! There are 5 of us in my family and I have to double it in order to feed everyone if I make only pancakes. The pancakes turn out light and fluffy and have a great flavor. There may be a couple more steps when making these vs. the box mix, but it is worth it and it really doesn't take that much longer. As another reviewer mentioned, don't let the "soured milk" scare you off. Also, the first time I made these I left out the melted butter step because we were out of butter and they still turned out great. Also, if you want to try toppings other than syrup, these taste great with peanut butter, jam, honey, butter and cinnamon, nutella or just by themselves.
