About this Cook
I'm a stay-at-home mom that takes care of two beautiful children. My husband is a hard worker and I fill my time with cooking fun dishes for dinner with a lot of variety!
My favorite things to cook
Anything Mexican...my Mexican cooking is very much Americanized, but everyone loves it, usually.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Turkey at thanksgiving...Mom handed down her secrets to me and I love to use them!
My cooking triumphs
Anything that requires a rolling pin. I am so novice at that...but I managed to bake my first apple pie from an old family recipe a few months ago and hubby was very impressed..though I was nervous as heck to do it!
My cooking tragedies
Making fish tacos for the first time...aye, back to the drawing board!

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup
Excellent! I was so proud of myself for pulling this off with just throwing together stuff that I already had on hand. I did use left over roast chicken instead, omitted one can of the Rotel tomatoes w/chilies, replaced beer with 1 14oz can of chicken broth and replaced black beans with pinto beans. I also threw in 2 T. of my Garlic Garlic seasoning (from Tastefully Simple). Instead of the crock pot, I sauteed my onions in my dutch oven for about 8 minutes on medium, then added remaining ingredients...kept on low for 4 hours on the stove and it was PERFECT. The sour cream/cheese/crumbled tortilla chips on top is the perfect compliment. Everyone in the house loved it...even my picky kids...AND PICKY HUBBY!!!

My Country Style Steak
To say that this was a hit at my house would be an understatement. Comments were, "this is the best gravy I've ever had!", "Honey, you hit a HOME RUN!" from the husband and kids, in fact they are fighting over the leftovers as I'm writing this. I did modify a bit: kept steaks whole, added garlic powder and Montreal seasoning to the flour before drudging meat through it. Also, to keep the gravy thicker, I added 1 cup of milk and only 1/2 cup of water and it was perfect. Highly recommend.

Sea Bass Barbecue
Definitely a keeper...easy and quick, this is the perfect compliment to Sea Bass. We added a little Old Bay Seasoning to perk it up a bit and that was an excellent addition. Will use this again without hesitation! Also a great way to lightly season fish for other uses like fish tacos, etc.
