I live in the lone star state where Tex-Mex is on every corner. Chips and Salsa is a staple in our home! I'm an Interior Decorator and I love doing anything creative. Decorating baked goodies is one of them :-) I prefer cooking by creativity and tasting; I love to experiment! Generally speaking, I'll scan over ingredients on a recipe and use my own measurements when cooking. Baking on the other hand is not always forgiving, so I follow dessert recipes much closer.
My favorite things to cook
My sweet tooth usually gets the best of me and I enjoy making desserts. I also enjoy making Mexican dishes, soups and casseroles.
My cooking tragedies
Not sure it would be a cooking tragedy as much as a delivery tragedy... I was carrying a sweet potato casserole to my neighbor just a few doors down. It smelled wonderful and looked scrumptious- topped with golden toasted marshmallows, fresh from the oven. As I walked up the stairs to her front door, the wind caught the aluminum foil laying loosely on top. I jerked to try and catch it, but the glass dish slipped out of my oven mitts and landed face down in her flower bed. Unfortunately, it was a goner!
