Just a quicky post to say that I made the best lasagna I've ever made last night.  Another dinner pressed for time and my baby's birthday was yesterday and of course he was requesting lasagna.  As if I had all day to brew a sauce, shred mozzerella, boil noodles, make roasted garlic… MORE

What a wonderful and blessed Easter we had...and crazy busy!  I'm not sure what compelled my niece to have her son's birthday party the day before Easter, but she did and somehow I got bamboozled into making Easter dinner for my family.  Which would not have been so bad if A) I wasn't told… MORE

About Me
Born in Mexico...raised a California girl, I'm always trying to find my roots with my cooking. I have a big family with my mom as matriarch and master cook. So I have some big shoes to fill.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking food that my mom always made when we were younger. She doesn't really have any recipes, so it's a challenge. Every time she cooks, it's a unique experience since variations on ingredients are never the same. I also love Mexican food El Paso style. I would like to dabble more in Italian and Filipino dishes. My all time fav is BBQ and down home Southern comfort food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from a Mexican Family. Family gatherings center around the kitchen and dinning areas. I love having family around the kitchen cooking, sitting around the dinner table talking, laughing,joking, drinking and eating.
My cooking triumphs
Mastered flour tortillas in 2013!!!
My cooking tragedies
That I mastered flour tortillas in 2013...I think I gained 5 lbs in one week.
