About this Cook
I am a transplant from Oregon to New Mexico, I have found that the food here is some the best I have ever had in my life. We live close to a reservation and their breads and tacos are to die for. I live each year for chile season, I love to smell the chiles roasting in the grocery store parking lot, YUMMY. I am happy to be able to live in a place that is so rich in culture and cuisine.
My favorite things to cook
I have been trying to make Oven Bread, and making lots of Mexician dishs too. I am pretty open to anything that smells and tastes good.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family comes from Germany and I am not a huge fan of a lot of the food my mother and grandmother made.
My cooking triumphs
Everytime my kids and husband ask for more I know I have done something right.
My cooking tragedies
This is embrassing, I can not cook a GOOD pot of pinto beans. I have made at least 15 pots of them and they always either are gritty or bland. Help me make a GOOD pot of pinto bean before I die!!!

Creamy Chocolate Frosting
First time I ever made chocolate frosting and it was so good. The cake did not fall apart when frosting it like it does with canned frosting. This is a winner!!!!

Broccoli Cheese Soup
The only thing I added to this recipe was diced fresh tomatoes, diced red onion and some shredded cheese on top when I served it. It is even better on the second day. YUMMY!!!
