About this Cook
I have been married all my life, LOL.. Starting cooking when I was 16 as I was married at that time and had to learn on my own. So I don't use exact measurements, I just throw and go and then smell. I haven't made very many bad meals. I can generally salvage them if they don't turn out to spec. I am up to cooking anything. I will try just about everything.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook Mexican food, soups & stews. Things we love to eat the most of.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Italian food is a big family traditional meal here. We Also have Turkey dinner for Thanksgiving and for Christmas we do the "Mexican Food Blowout". YUMMOOOOhhhh... You might ask what in the world is Mexican Food Blowout? Well it is like going to a buffet of Mexican food that is fresh and hot and ready to eat! We generally have anywhere between 16 to 22 people come for it. No one wants to miss this meal....
My cooking tragedies
I deal with this from time to time due to the humidity where I live can sometimes give me fits with my bread. If the humidity is high sometimes it takes awhile to rise. Crazy I know but sometimes my bread is just Ok.. Most times it is good due to I'm careful when I bake it..

Yellow Squash
I made this tonight. It was pretty tasty. I added onions that had been sauteed in a little olive oil. Plenty of garlic. Then after I drained it well & mashed it all up well it was just too watery. So I stuck it in a pan with crushed crackers on top 350 for 15 minutes. And it was pretty darn yummy that way. Helped to bake out alot of water. I will make this again and again, but I will for sure put it in the oven after I smash it all up.
