My grandmother on my dad's side was always an awesome cook. She had a sixth sense with spices and always cooked up delicious traditional Mexican food. Luckily, I seem to have inherited these cooking genes. I rarely measure things or know how long something is going to take me. Somehow, I can guess how much time I'll need and as for spices, I just use my nose. If it smells delicious, it is not often that it won't taste delicious.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking everything, in every which way. The only thing I don't like is frying. It's like having to battle with the food! I always win but not without some battle scars.
My cooking triumphs
I think the best recipes I have come up with are Comida and Masa-Baked Chicken. My masa cookie crumblers are also one of my favourite things to bake.
My cooking tragedies
Hamburgers, I just can't seem to ever get these to turn out right. I decided it's clearly a man job, and leave it to my boyfriend to cook them.
