About this Cook
I'm 38 yrs old, married and have 5 children. We have 3 girls: Kristen 19, Miranda 10, Maryssa 5, and 2 boys: Jaime Jr 8, Jacob 6. My husband loves for me to cook, because I like to experiment with and make new dishes. He loves to eat just about anything...the kids...well they can be picky...ha ha, but I try to make things I know they'll enjoy.
My favorite things to cook
seafood gumbo, paella, arroz con pollo, lasagna, chicken marsala, caldo, chicken enchiladas, carne guisada, German chocolate cake, my grandma's oatmeal raisin cookies and peach cobbler.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Grandma's Oatmeal Raisin cookies and Peach Cobbler. My Momo's cornbread dressing.
My cooking triumphs
The first time I made both of my Grandmother's signature recipes, my Mom and Dad said it tastes just like theirs did.
My cooking tragedies
Though I love spicy food I occasionally get carried away with the spices. Also I'm a terribly impatient person so you can imagine I don't care to cook time consuming meals. Usually I can have dinner made in an hour or less.

Grilled Bacon Jalapeno Wraps
I have been making these for years before seeing the recipe on here. They are delicious and you'll love them! Some of my family members have made them in the oven and they're ok, but on the grill is BEST!

Baked Beans III
I made this recipe for a summer family party and everyone loved them. I was so relieved it was my first time making baked beans, but won't be my last.
