About this Cook
I love different ethnic foods, so much to my gain- I am married to a Mexican! My mother in law and the family have really taught me how to cook real traditional mexican foods, and not the "tex-mex". My side of the family is Irish mainly, but we also enjoy foods that are german, russian, etc.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake, and I am always trying new things along with family favs. I love allrecipe, because some of my new dishes are from here. It is also fun to learn from other cooks, new twists to things already do.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Trifle for the holidays. Super Nachos when we have family sleepover night. Prime Rib Roast. Caldo de Queso. My grandmothers Mustard Crust Leg of Lamb, and the smell of Green chili's roasting on the cumal in the morning (heaven) and even more..... My in laws have really incorporated their family traditions along with mine and it is now ours!
My cooking triumphs
Finally getting some of my mother inlaws recipes! She would tell me how to do one, but if she didn't write it down- I would be missing key things to really make that recipe good- ( I think it was on purpose..wink).
My cooking tragedies
I made Albondigas for my Father in law and husband on e night. When I went to work they decided to heat it up. Well they forgot about it and it totally burned-(AHHHHHH). The house smelled for days!!!

Amazing Calavacita and Pork
To keep the calabicitas from going mushie cook in layers. Meat on the bottom to simmer in the juices, and the vegetables on top and then mixed in with the meat the last 5 mins of cooking. Also use less water. I would also use a broth instead of water for better flavour. I am not a fan of whorchester so I rubbed the meat with chili powder. and simmered the meat with garlic, onion, salt and pepper.

Best London Broil Ever!
My family just loved this!!! The best part was how easy it is to prepare and just pop it in the oven. To add a some different flavor I used some stewed (you can use diced) tomatoes with the onion, garlic and bell pepper allready in it! It saved time having to cut all of that up. GREAT!!!!!
