I have always loved cooking. When I was 5 years old my grandma started letting me help her while she was cooking. She always cooked big batches of food since she had so many kids but it was fun helping her. By the time I was a teenager, she would leave me in the kitchen and I would make exactly what she taught me how to make! Now that I am living on my own and ready to start my family, I still make her recipes but I like trying new things also!
My favorite things to cook
I love to make tacos, enchiladas,goulash, soups, cakes, pies, cookies, various chicken creations, just about anything. Mexican food is my favorite.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year for Christmas my husbands side of the family has a dinner that is just like Thanksgiving. Complete with the turkey, ham, potatoes, sweet potatoes just everything and I love it:) I would eat it everyday if I could!!!
My cooking triumphs
Following recipes!!! I was taught to not use recipes by my grandmother so it is very hard for me to have to follow directions on how to make something but I am getting better at it every day!!
My cooking tragedies
I have forgotten that I put food in the oven once, forgot to add an ingredient which made it taste nasty. Making chocolate chip cookies once I added baking soda instead of baking powder. Needless to say, they tasted like the freezer smelled!!
