I am a mother of four (2 of each kind) and a photographer. I currently reside in Tacoma, WA but have lived in Phoenix, AZ and Reno, NV. My hometown is Fresno, CA. Besides learning that I am turning into a good cook I am refining my artistic skills. I get rave reviews on my photography, art and, now, my cooking. Allrecipes is my go-to site for all things recipe. In fact I should give credit to allrecipes for my burgeoning interest in cooking.
My favorite things to cook
Butter cake from scratch. Corn and carrot chili. My grandmothers super secret cherry cheese pie. Dijon mustard chicken. Homemade enchilada sauce.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making my family's entire Thanksgiving dinner along side my husband. Having something non-traditional for Christmas dinner (bbq meatball subs, enchiladas)
My cooking triumphs
Anything that my seven year old will eat feels like a gigantic victory.
My cooking tragedies
A three ingredient recipe for peanut butter cookies. If it sounds too good to be true...
