Pan-Seared Chicken Breasts with Shallots
Italian Cream Cake II
About this Cook
I am a single mother and I work late hours so I like to cook all weekend meal that I can reheat all week long. Come over to my house any given saturday and every pot and pan is dirty but I will have hot lunches and dinners all week long!!!!!!!!!!!!
My favorite things to cook
Chicken, vegatarian and fish meals, I do not like pork or beef so if I can substitute in a recipe I do.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is Mexican on my mothers side and Italian on my fathers so we have a very rich food history. I have some old family recipes that sorry I can not share here...or I will have to kill you (LOL). My tamales are to die for...
My cooking triumphs
romantic chicken and artichokes from this site. Tamales sorry no can share that recipe. onion pie From this site
My cooking tragedies
I really have not had to many of these that stick out (spices can save anything or just cover it with hot sauce) unless you count that time my sister and I made tapioca when we where little and thought that the box was misprinted. Instead of 2 tablespoons we added almost a whole cup...was like that tv show where the soap bubbles come out of the washer machine!!!!!!!!!!!!

Easy Bunny Cake
I have been making this since I was young after finding it in a magazine somewhere. It has been on the menu every year since then. Now my son is the one to make it though.

Chocolate Mice
Made these for my sons Halloween party and the kids gobbled them up. Although they did scare one little girl when she happened to open my freezer. I used half nilla wafers and half chocolate animal crackers based on the too chocolatey taste. My coworkers also loved them said they tatse like fudge
