About this Cook
Single mom. Cat herder. Dragon whisperer. Mountain biker. Music lover. One tween, three beardies, four cats. Life is full of surprises.
My favorite things to cook
Mexican food. Stuff in the Traeger. Things that taste good and suit my current whim.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandma refusing to make gravy every holiday. Tamales at Christmas.
My cooking triumphs
Croissants in high school that my French teacher accused me of buying from a bakery. Tamales that melt in your mouth. A red sauce I'm still perfecting. Ribs that fall apart when you touch them.
My cooking tragedies
The year my mom moved my tamale pot to another burner and turned the heat up to get the water boiling again (she wasn't aware that the 1/2" of water didn't really need to boil). She then left to take the dog for a walk. The water evaporated, penny melted, pot stuck to the glass stove top and broke it, and a couple dozen tamales were dry and burned :(
