About this Cook
I am a "middle age" woman and was widowed in 2006. I am the caregiver for my 90-year-old mother who has dementia. We live with my brother in his house. My son and daughter live in Texas.
My favorite things to cook
I love mexican food! It doesn't have to be really spicy, I just love the flavors and textures of mexican foods. I also love to bake. My late husband baked the best bread in the world from scratch, but I baked everything else. Cookies are probably my best accomplishment.
My favorite family cooking traditions
When our children were small, my son played lacrosse for several years. Lacrosse night was taco night, because tacos were so fast and easy to make when we got home after the game, and we all loved them so much. When we made home-made pizzas we always made a taco pizza, too.
My cooking triumphs
I made a wonderful cheesecake cookie that everyone loves, and my carrot cake is very well received.
My cooking tragedies
When I was a new bride I didn't know how to make spaghetti sauce and tried to make it with tomato soup! (Now my family tells me my sauce could be bottled and sold.)

Honey Nut Granola
Great granola! I made it to the recipe at first but have since changed it: no nuts, added pumpkin seeds, flax seed, buchwheat groats, maple syrup, raisins and dried cranberries. I use olive oil instead of canola. It doesn't change the taste at all. My brother loves it and eats it dry, as a snack. I prefer to mix mine with yogurt for breakfast. I'll never buy commercial granola again!

Haystacks I
My mother made these for us when we were little kids (and I'm 59). I made them for years for my kids and siblings. Everyone always loves them and they are the most requested cookie I've ever made. My recipe does not include nuts.

Clone of a Cinnabon
Very good, but I made a few minor alterations. First, I add raisins to the filling. Second, I pour melted butter into the bottom of the baking pan before adding the rolls. Just a good skim of melted butter and then you turn out the rolls right when they come out of the oven. Rich and gooey!!
