About me

Location San Mateo, CA
Introduction I am the mother of three kids, ages 17, 9, and almost 5. I work full-time but in my spare time (of which there is not much) I love to cook. I've been asked how do I do it, what with my daughters fifty million activities and a full-time job, how do I manage to take the time to cook and cook foods I've never cooked before. My answer is simple, I enjoy it and cooking is a stress reliever for me. I enjoy chopping and peeling, frying, grilling and most especially eating my creations. Growing up my mom taught us the basics of food. Unfortunately, my mother was not taught how to cook by our Guatemalan grandmother and thus, we learned mostly to cook Mexican food since my mother learned a lot about cooking from our Mexican father. In the past few years I have really come to enjoy foods from different countries and pride myself in tackling cuisine from everywhere. My oldest son at time says Mom can't you just cook normal. My answer: This is Normal! I hope you enjoy my blog and join me on my journey for the love of all things food.
