In the last 18 years I've become many things: restaurant owner, jeweler, business owner, not to mention chief bottle washer. But more important than all of that, I'm a happily married mother of three great kids. Somehow, they're at the doorstep of their own 'becomings' and I'm taking a break to enjoy just being ME.
My favorite things to cook
I'm a tinkerer by nature, so I love cooking things which give me an opportunity to make it "just a little better." (Or, if you're the recipe author, I'm a jerk. Take your pick.)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas dinner for us means prime rib - and what could be a better tradition than that? Well, it could be my step-dad's fish tacos. After much suspicion from the Texan camp, it turns out Cali-dad knows his stuff. Those things are divine, and we look forward to them at every spring & summertime visit.
My cooking triumphs
Tamales. I'm white. Need I say more?
