I grew up with a traditional Mexican grandmother who insisted on teaching me how to make the family recipes, and I haven't stopped since!
My favorite things to cook
My old family Mexican recipes, and I love to experiment to make comfort food healthier.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making tamales with all of the women in the family during the Christmas holiday...well, actually every time we get together, all of the women cook and the men watch sports and I think it's so much fun...like 3 generations together in the kitchen!
My cooking triumphs
I invented a scone recipe from scratch! Also, my boyfriend seems to think that I'm a gourmet chef, even when he's eating some sort of Campbell's recipe that was super easy. Isn't that sweet?
My cooking tragedies
I have an ancient oven in my apartment and it took some getting used to. Until I figured out how to adjust the temperature, I burned the bottoms of alot of things and had to throw away alot of chocolate chip cookies.
