Having 3 girls under 5 makes cooking a challenge, but fun. I usually have a "helper" alongside. I love cooking and am a type A personality, so I like to have the kinks worked out in a recipe for my picky eater hubby. I really love this site as I have more hits!
My favorite things to cook
I generally keep homemade hummus every other week or so. It is so easy and a great snack. If it includes tomatoes, I'll try it. We are really into chicken and ways to make hearty meals on a budget.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Our 'secret' Cuban Black Beans. There is also a Moho sauce to go over it that I am trying to obtain. I have a book of another Grandmother's recipes that I love to comb through- banana pudding comes to mind.
My cooking triumphs
My biggest hit so far is my Spanish Bean Soup. Maybe I'll get around to posting it on here. I get requests to bring my hummus too when we are going to a crowd event.
My cooking tragedies
Wow, once I tried to make buscuits from scratch and switch the baking soda for the power or visa versa and they all tasted like pretzels shaped like buscuits. We all had a good laugh. Now I use Busquick!
