I have been married for 28 years and have 6 children. I have been cooking since I was a little girl. I have always loved to cook.
My favorite things to cook

My favorite family cooking traditions
once year my family and friends get together and make tamales. we make about 40-45 dozen. Every year it grows someone always brings someone new to help. Since it happens around Christmas time we have Christmas music on and everything is just so festive.
My cooking triumphs
A friend of mine asked if she could use my house to have her wedding and reception. She said she had everything all planned out. The day before she found out there would be no cake. I made a 3 tier wedding cake along with bride and groom on the top. I must say it was beautiful. I had one day to pull this off and I did. My friend was so happy.
My cooking tragedies
When I was about 12 years old I made biscuits for my family's dinner.They came out of the oven, looked browned and perfect. when we sat down to eat nobody could eat them these biscuits were so hard . My little brothers used them for baseball practice and they still didn't break.
