I am wife, and friend, to my soulmate since 1976, Abuelita to five grandkids, and Mom to the best 3 kids in this world or the next!I am also Ophthalmology Coordinator of Surgical Services here in our local hospital, a surgical nurse for 25years.
My favorite things to cook
I am best with most anything in the Mexican quisine as my spouse is Mexican- go figure;) Would like to expand my repetoire in the foreseeable future.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Frijoles, arroz, sopa, quacamole, tortillas, migas, salsas, FAJITAS!!! When we do it up, we do it with gusto!!! And we love to do this in the summer, when all of the extended families can enjoy it with us. This summer we will plant our first veggie garden to use in our homemade salsas, sopas, etc.!!!
My cooking triumphs
I have recently begun baking bread- lots of it. THAT has been a triumph. Now I am canning homegrown vegetables, and am loving every minute.
My cooking tragedies
Any time I try to make something by taste!!! My husband is the chef in this house and I love to be his sous!!! He keeps telling me to cook by the seat of my pants. I can't even SEE the seat of my pants, much less cook by them!!!
