About this Cook
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. :(

Mexican Corn on the Cob (Elote)
This is a good recipe-- I personally love Elotes. But if you want it to be authentic, use mayo con limon. This is what hispanics normally use. It adds a very light citrus twist to it. So this is how we make it in my home, cook the corn shucked, spread mayo con limon (mayonnaise with lime), roll in cotija cheese, and spread a little ketchup on it. That is how you normally see it.
