About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I guess I would have to say Mexican recipes. My husband is from Mexico and I try to learn what I can.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Never had any growing up. I'm trying to make some for my children by learning as much as possible.
My cooking triumphs
I finally learned how to make Frijoles de la Olla and Chiles Rellenos!
My cooking tragedies
Can't make hard boil eggs or meatloaf to save my life!

Firecracker Burgers
Used freshly roasted peppers and Knorr's Costillas de Res bouillon for great success.

Angel's Old Fashioned Beef Stew
I followed the basic outline of this recipe but I also incorporated Caroline's(from Buffalo Grove, Il.)suggestions except for the sage and Rosemary. The V8 was a great idea! I also used Knorr bouillon flavor "Costillas de Res"(beef ribs)instead of beef stock. Plain old sliced white onion was all I had on hand but it worked just fine. My family loved it. I also added 1 tsp. chili powder to the flour with the paprika. Added a little zip to the meat. Now, I added the veggies about 20 minutes after the meat, onions and stock. They came out perfect. I did keep their size rather small(maybe that was why I didn't have any under-cooked veggies)about the same size as the meat. Overall, I was happy with this recipe after the tweaks.
