About this Cook
I am a wife, mom, grandmother, sister and cousin. I am a runner, and I have run 8 half-marathons. My husband's mother taught me how to cook, and according to my family, she did an outstanding job. I try to prepare healthy meals
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook Mexican food-authentic Mexican food. I also like to make bundt cakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Before my daughter moved, we always made Christmas cookies together. I always make a big Easter lunch, Thanksgiving lunch and Christmas lunch for my family.
My cooking triumphs
I learned how to make chicken and dumplings like my mother-in-law used to make. That makes my whole family happy.
My cooking tragedies
When my husband and I were newly married, I fixed a casserole dish with cream of shrimp soup. It was awful, but I thought it was the best food I had ever prepared. It was so bad that my husband would take a bite, lean back in his chair, open the front door (our table was right next to the front door) and spit it out. No stray cats or dogs would touch it-that's how bad it was.
