About this Cook
I grew up loving to watch my dad and neighbor cook. I loved watching cooking shows and when I was 15 started experimenting with cooking my own recipes. I am now 30 and love cooking. I still create my own recipes as well as cooking recipes from books, shows etc. My challenges now are trying to find ways to make great meals that not only my husnad and I love, but the kids enjoy too, we all know how kids are. And I am now getting into using unique ingrediants.
My favorite things to cook
Well, I grew up eating a lot of spanish cooking. So I love trying to re-create those dishes. My husband is a meat and potatoes guy, so I try to create fancier versions of meat and potatoes, and although I am not a vegiterian, I love creating savory, satisfying vegiterian dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Well, ever Christmas my dad would make Pasteles, and I tried to learn how, but haven't, yet. So I guess my tradition, although doesn't involve me cooking, but it does involve food. Every year the kids look foward to the gifts under the tree, and my husband , sisters and I all await my Dad's pasteles. It just isn't Christmas with out them!!!!
My cooking triumphs
I am not sure I have had a cooking Triumph yet. My expectations for myself, as far as cooking are too high. I would say I will have a cooking triumph when I have my own little resteraunt, or cafe.
My cooking tragedies
Weel, I have been known to break a cake or 2 in my time, and cooking things on to high of a temp, to spped things up , but always end up burning the food.

Cranberry Cake
This is a delicious recipe, great for Christmas or Thanksgiving. One thing I found, the amount of water wasn't listed in ingredaints, si I started off with 1/4 c. water,and increased it little by little until it was the correct consistancy of cake batter-which eneded up being about 1c. total of water.

Hard to believe, but many kids will be back in school at the end of the month. Get ready.

You won't believe all the things you can do with cauliflower. It's a great low-carb option.
