About this Cook
I watched my mom a lot growing up, but i didnt realize i could cook until i moved out. Now i am fully utilizing my cooking skills for bf, roommate and guests.
My favorite things to cook
Amber's Sesame Chicken and Ma Lipo's Apricot Glazed Turkey
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love cooking Mexican food like my grandmother, even if i have to call in the middle of cooking with a question.
My cooking triumphs
I made homemade tamales for the first time for a friend's bday present. It took 13 hours in all.
My cooking tragedies
The first cake i ever made from scratch failed miserbly because i used the wrong pan, bf at the time walked 3 blocks to get me new pans because i was so upset. I've also forgotten things in the stove and burnt them and cried, i guess i should get a timer for xmas! But i rarely get goof ups now, but i think it happens to everyone once in awhile.

Baked Beans from Scratch
Added bell pepper, a couple shakes of hot sauce, and 1/4th cup brown sugar. Omitted Ketchup added 1 small can tomato paste and 2 tbs mustard. I feel sorry for my neighbors having to smell it all day. Cooked in crockpot low for 3 hours and high for 7 hours. Results were raved about.
