I am a (mostly) self-taught cook and baker originally from South Texas. I now live in Denver and love everything about Colorado! I have one dog, one cat, and one sweet boyfriend.
My favorite things to cook
Soups, Desserts and Cookies, Vegetarian Dishes, BBQ, Breakfast (I make a mean breakfast!)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Sunday we gather at my grandmother's house for dinner, where we all gather at her kitchen table and there is a joyous mixture of singing, banging pans, utensils doing their jobs, laughter, gossip, and wine. We never leave without having a wonderful homemade dessert.
My cooking triumphs
Learning how to use spices to create healthy meals, converting old southern (unhealthy) recipes into healthier options, learning to bake at high altitude.
My cooking tragedies
High altitude baking is difficult and I have ruined many-a-pan of brownies.
