I am newly married with a ten year old daughter and just recently became a domestic engineer, which gives me time to do what I absolutely love...to cook!
My favorite things to cook
My chocholic aunt just passed away of cancer (everyone should quit smoking!!!), so I don't get to cook sweets anymore. I love cooking with fresh ingredients from the farmer's market or right out of our garden. I like making healthy meals that taste great so we don't miss the things that are bad for us.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking mexican food with my mom and sister-in-law around the holidays instead of the traditional turkey dinner, along with plenty of margaritas!
My cooking triumphs
Cooking for my family and making vegetables and healthy cuts of meat taste good for my daughter so she will eat them. The last thing I tricked her on was a bbq shrimp burger. She thought she didn't like shrimp.
My cooking tragedies
As a teenager, before I learned to cook, I was trying to make instant mashed potatoes for my little cousins from a box...It ended up being potato soup.
