Mother of three wonderful kids. Learned to cook from one family member. But mostly I learned by trying things out and just throwing things together. I hate measuring!
My favorite things to cook
mexican food (authentic), pasta dishes, healthy cooking, and sandwiches. One of my favorites is a veggie sandwich with pesto mayo.
My favorite family cooking traditions
homemade green chili or regular chili with homemade tortillas are a kid favorite in my house. My kids also love homemade burritos. I always cook my own beans.
My cooking triumphs
Most everything I think I can master. I usually can personalize a meal and make it better. I love throwing ingredients together based on something I ate or saw on tv.
My cooking tragedies
Haven't quite mastered home-made breads if they have to rise. They are hit or miss.
