About this Cook
I'm a single mother of 3 very picky boys. If one kid loves it, another will just like it, and one will always not like it. My youngest is the least picky, and his tastes are changing every day, he's becoming more open to different foods. My middle child is the most picky and it's very hard to please him. My oldest is somewhat picky, but will eat whatever if that's all he's going to get ;) They really drive me crazy sometimes and dinner time is always a dilemma at our house.
My favorite things to cook
I love Mexican food, but, unfortunately, my kids don't like it too well. I love to make Enchiladas, different kinds of Tacos, Green Chile, Frijoles, Spanish Rice, Chicken Taquitos, Tostadas, Chicken Quesadillas, Burritos, Nachos... Gee, I'm getting reeeeealy hungry!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every time I make Chicken Taquitos and Rice, I think of my aunt teaching me how to make them in her kitchen several years ago. She died in 2005 and that is a fond memory I have and her food will live on!
My cooking triumphs
Any time my kids don't complain! :)

Spaghetti Carbonara II
I thought this was just ok. None of my three kids liked it though.

Hungarian Mushroom Soup
I used about half the onions called for, used 2 tbsp salted butter and 2 tbsp smart balance oil and didn't need to add any other salt. Added 2 diced cooked chicken breasts to make it more of a meal. Used dried parsley. Used whole wheat flour. It was sooo good, I'd like to give it 4.5 stars (based om 5 stars being the best thing I've ever tasted) but there's no option for that. I will ABSOLUTELY be making this more in the future!

Chex(R) Pumpkin Pie Crunch
OMG! DELISH! Used 1 1/2 C each of Rice Chex, Wheat Chex and Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Used 1 1/2 C of Square/rectangle shaped pretzels. Used about 4 oz Pecans and 6 oz almonds. Used 1 tsp. vanilla extract and one tsp. almond extract. Sprinkled about 1/2 bag of white chocolate chips after heating in microwave, let sit until warmed and then stirred in just a little, until spread evenly. SOOOOO GOOD!
