I am from an Irish/German family and trust me I can make a mean mashed potatoes. But I have actually always identified with the Hispanic culture. I am currently dating a Guatemalan man and I love getting recipes from his family.
My favorite things to cook
Carne Asada!!! I make the best Carne Asada this side of Cincinnati. I even blow my boyfriend's aunt's recipe out of the water. ;)
My cooking triumphs
Slow cooked steak chimichangas. Took me about two hours, even after the meat was cooked but it was delicious.
My cooking tragedies
I once made pumpkin pancakes.. and they wouldn't cook!!! they were mushy inside and hard as rocks outside. I was crushed. :(
