Love to cook, don't do it enough! Trying to start good, healthy habits in the kitchen.
My favorite things to cook
I love using my Crock Pot! My goal is to use it at least twice a week. Otherwise, I'm not particular about what I make, just need to expand my repertoire and get better at the basics.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from a fairly large Hispanic family. We love getting together and cooking for just about every holiday. Tamales at Christmas is absolutely my favorite family tradition, but we don't limit our cooking to Hispanic meals, and just getting the group together, even for something small is very special to me.
My cooking triumphs
I make some mean green chicken enchiladas! My pulled pork and pasta salad are also pretty popular around my circle.
My cooking tragedies
Definitely butchered Chicken Parmesan last year. It was quite tragic; I still haven't fully recovered. Didn't burn it or anything, it was just horrifically bland. Also, cannot for the life of me cook rice. It never cooks through all the way.
