I am the Sales Manager of a hotel in a very large chain. My busy schedule does not allow a whole lot of time for planning quality meals for my family. This site is a busy person's best friend!
My favorite things to cook
Easy and rich tasting food. In particular soups and slow cooker foods. So long as my family is happy, I'm happy!
I also love to bake when I have time. Make sweet treats has always been a past time. And of course my family loves it!
My favorite family cooking traditions
When my family starts to cook, we are all in the kitchen, talking, laughing and having a good time. We live to eat! My Mexican heritage makes for some yummy food that is passed along to future generations. Its all about having fun!
My cooking triumphs
I have to say my best triumph would be perfecting a moist and flakey pie crust! When my father passed away, he took the family pie crust recipe with him. I do believe I have recreated it! My pico de gallo is also perfected and is requested at all potlucks and family gatherings. Its yummy!
My cooking tragedies
I can say that I have not had any real tragedies. When I cook, I am extremely attentive. There are a few times I could have added something here or there, but no burnt pans or wasted food!
