About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook Mexican food. I also enjoy throwing together casseroles and crock pot meals.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holiday cooking is my favorite time of the year to cook. It's the time of the year when family recipes come out (Grandma's Pecan Pie, Grandma's Broccoli Casserole and her Jello salad). I've added a few of my own over the years too.
My cooking triumphs
When I finally mastered enchiladas the way my mother-in-law makes them. There is no jar sauce, just authentic cooking with her twist! Wonderful!
My cooking tragedies
The first time I made gravy for my boyfriend (hubby of 15+ yrs). I knew just enough to get me into trouble. I knew you added flour to the grease and then milk. It wouldn't get "thick" so I kept adding more and more flour! He tasted it like a champ and just said hon it's a bit floury, while trying to hide his grimaces! LMAO poor guy... I'm sure it was a mouthful of flour goo! He doesn't say much about it now but gets this big grin when I make gravy!

Linguini with Roasted Vegetables and al fresco Italian Style Chicken Meatballs
This was very good! I loved the asparagus in the dish. I cut the basil to 1/4 cup because my family isn't too keen on it.
