I am a mother of 4 boys and 1 little girl. I love to find new recipes for my family to try, although they don't always like it!
My favorite things to cook
I like to try cooking authentic mexican food, since that is my family's culture. But I also like good southern comfort foods and my family loves Italian food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We bake Christmas cookies each year, which I'm sure most families do. My boys, except the 14 year old, love to help out in the kitchen. So I try to give them each a day to help with dinner and sometimes in the planning of it also.
My cooking triumphs
I finally made a great turkey this year!!!! I was so excited!
My cooking tragedies
I tried to make a cake for Easter one year that was supposed to be a lamb. Everyone thought it was a pig. But it did taste good! And I still can't roast a good turkey. :(
