Married to a wonderful man and we have 3 beautiful and silly daughters! I love to cook and love to modify recipes. My husband calls me the Spice Queen.
My favorite things to cook
Meatloaf, soups of any kind, pastas, pesto sauces in different variations, chicken fried steak, casseroles, and well anything! I love cooking!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother side of the family is from Spain. My grandmother had wonderful traditions, which she made sure to pass on before she died. Every Christmas my mother, sisters, and sometimes aunts get together and make homemade Biscochitos, tamales, carne adavoda, tortillas, and sopapillas. Very fattening holiday!
My cooking triumphs
Perfecting gravy. My father is a master gravy maker (not kidding) and I always hoped to be as good as him. I have had some bad gravy disasters in the past, but just recently I had family tell me that I have it down solid!
My cooking tragedies
Wow....too many lol! I think the worst was when I blew up Jello...not on purpose! Who can say they accidentally blew up Jello?
