About this Cook
I love cooking, baking, and experimenting with new foods/ingredients. I love having friends over for dinner, and truly enjoy feeding people!
My favorite things to cook
Mexican dishes, of course, but I love trying recipes from other cultures. If I go to a restaurant and eat something I really like, I go home and duplicate it!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Northern Mexican cuisine is really simple, with strong flavors. Roasted peppers, beef jerky, mild cheeses. I have been combining the regional recipes with the more intricate cuisine found in the Southern region of Mexico. Ever since I moved to Pensacola, I have been compiling my family's recipes and organizing them in a book, so they can be passed on.
My cooking triumphs
Tinga de Pollo (a chicken casserole with pineapple) I even won a prize for it at a work luncheon! It's all my friends' favorite thing to have when I cook, along with some good old Guacamole... it's always a hit!
My cooking tragedies
O, Lord... trying to cook some Lemon Chicken... the recipe called for a cup of lemon juice, and I put lime juice... it was soooooo bitter, no one could eat it!

Chicken Mole with Four Chiles
Ty, your mole with four chiles is great! Not too many girls like to cook wholesome-more-than-three-ingredients recipes like this one. I am all about cooking authentic Mexican food from scratch, and I am also proud of making my own corn and flour tortillas!
