My family
About this Cook
My name is Kelsi and I am a mother of two beautiful baby boys Xander Grant and Xaiden Seth. Cooking started out as a hobbie for but lately my dishes have been so popular I've been asked to cater weddings and parties. And I love it! Currently I am working on opening a wedding reception center to further enhance my catering skills!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook authentic spanish dishes. My grandmother immigrated from Spain as a young girl and have passed some wonderful family recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Sunday for as long as I can remember we would gather as a family and my grandmother would make us a wonderful spanish dinner. Over the years we still assemble on Sunday but now I'm doing the cooking under my grandmothers watchful eye.
My cooking triumphs
When I catered my first wedding which was my cousins/best friend's wedding. She took a chance on me because I had never done it before but it turned out great!
My cooking tragedies
Oh! Too many to count. When your learning sometimes you add a little to much of something and not enough of another!

Sugared Black Raspberry Tea Cookies
Great little cookie! They all looked so pretty. All I had was apricot preserves and decided to try them out, I also omitted the chocolate chips (my son isn't a chocolate fan, he's a little weird :)) They turned out so good. They all disappeared within an hour so I guess everyone liked them as much as me!

Mock Champagne
So tasty!! I made it for a Mary Kay party, but have kept a little pitcher of it in the fridge just for me!
