About this Cook
Cooking is a great way to bring people together, to stay together! My friends and I started making meals together once a week when I was 20 years old.. Here we are almost three years later and still preparing food with and for the same group. The weekly cooking quickly turned into every other night, then everyday. I love to cook and seem to be falling more in love with it after each skill learned. My kitchen is definitely the most used room of my house.
My favorite things to cook
Pasta, baking breads, chili, stews, any type of potato, grilled vegetables, steaks, pineapple upside down cakes, potato potato potato, anything I can put cheese on, pasta salad
My favorite family cooking traditions
My dad contributed to my childhood meals with green chili, homemade tomato sauce, salsa, texas style chili, and some great enchiladas. My stepmom was quite the baker she mad excellent cheese cakes, cookie dough and banana bread. My family was always big on pot lucks.

Mexican Style Shredded Pork
First time I have made mexican food by myself. I will be making this again soon. I get off of work very late and did not have 7 hours to wait, so this is what I did... First I brouned the pork pieces on all sides, in a pot, on the stove. I added all the ingredients as listed (except, used chicken stock instead of water.) Brought to a boil for maybe 10min, covered and continued cooking on medium. Preheated the oven to 350 degrees. Once preheated everything was put in a oven safe dish with a lid and put in the oven for appox 2 1/2 hours. Continue checking so meat doesnt become dry. This worked out excellent for me. My friend is begging me to make this for his birthday. This recipe is a keeper.
