I learned to cook from my mother... she never measured a thing and neither do I (unless I'm making it for the first time). Cooking is an artful science and I love it. It calms me and it makes me and everyone I cook for happy. =)
My favorite things to cook
Pasta, cookies, cakes... I love trying new recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Too many to count
My cooking triumphs
My first dinner party. I made Sangrias, Chicken Enchiladas, Slow-Cooked Shredded Beef, Fish Tacos, Cilantro Rice & Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies & Sopapillas for dessert. I cooked all day and didn't even join the crowd in my living room. I LIVED in the kitchen, but it was so worth it. My guests ate everything with such joie de vivre, I don't even think they noticed I wasn't there. =)
