About this Cook
I love people, love to cook and combining the two is one of my favorite things! I also try to encourage people to try different foods, the way the natives do.
My favorite things to cook
My specialty is authentic Mexican food. From the gourmet to the simple everyday fare. I try to teach while I'm cooking, I love to watch people's faces when they try something new. Sometimes they expect the dish to be really spicey hot and they are often surprised by the lack of heat!
My favorite family cooking traditions
If someone goes home hungry after eating here, it's not my fault! I make sure everyone is well-fed.
My cooking triumphs
It had to be the one that started with my hubby and I inviting a close friend who loves Mexican food to dinner. By the date of the dinner I actually fed 23 people, plus my own family. Including a traditional Mexican dessert and a non-alcoholic version of a Sangria.
My cooking tragedies
I still haven't mastered my mother's knack for gooey, chewy, moist cinnamon rolls. I still end up with rock candy instead of the caramel the topping is supposed to be.
