I grew up in the kitchen with my Bolivian Abuela and my Mexican Irish Mother. I love cooking but am not the best baker. I love all types of cuisine. My husband and I both prefer savory over sweets. I would love to learn a lot more about cooking and love to collect recipes. I enjoyed watching Alton Brown's cooking show because he explained the science behind a lot of cooking which I find fascinating. Some of my favorite cook books are from Cook's Illustrated, Junior League of Houston (Stop and Smell the Rosemary), and Local Cook Book's from places I visit.
