About this Cook
I love to cook. I like to experiment, but enjoy having a recipe to guide me. I don't typically measure my ingredients (except when baking), so I'm pretty used to eyeballing and estimating. Unfortunately, my daughter's favorite food that I've ever made was the Suddenly Pasta Salad tonight...oh, well, her tastes will evolve!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook a variety of dishes, but I'm learning to perfect some authentic Mexican dishes. After years of trying, I finally just asked my sister in law for some recipes. It is getting better. I also like to grill.
My cooking triumphs
I make an awesome faux shrimp ceviche tostada. When my husband told me that it was even better than the original, I knew that I'd hit pay dirt!
My cooking tragedies
Too many to count, but I steer clear of recipes from my fix it and forget it book, since I still can't forget the horible dinner that we tried several years ago.

Taco Seasoning I
This was exactly what I was looking for when I found myself without taco seasoning on hand. Have 4 kids. Didn't want to run out just for taco seasoning, and the taco salad was already started. The spice was perfect, even for my youngest eater (1). Thanks for this lifesaver! My only suggestion is to double or triple this recipe, so that you have some on hand!!!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup
This was just what I was looking for when I was snowed in. I altered the recipe a bit, but only because I hardly ever measure ingredients for soup. She is absolutely correct when she says that you can add more or less of any ingredient and it still tastes great! I thought it was perfect. My husband likes his soup a little spicier (Mexican), so he added a little green salsa to his and he asked for more. Terrific recipe! I'll definately make it again. Great for when you get to the end of the ham.

No Bake Chocolate Oat Bars
To start, I did alter this recipe after reading other reviews. I used 3/4 C butter and 3/4 C peanut butter. The oatmeal topping and bottom were pretty crumbly, but this was so good. I don't know who I'm going to give these to...If I don't give them away, I'll weigh 500 lbs! This was also a super easy recipe. My 4 year old helped me, and was able to measure all of the ingredients.
