I am a working mom of one who loves to cook and try new recipes. I like to search in Big Oven for ideas for my weekly menu and plan ahead for at least two weeks. I enjoy spending time with my family, cooking, and playing on the computer. I was raised to cook from scratch and that is how I am teaching my daughter also.

I would have to say my favorite dishes are either in Mexican or Italian. But I still enjoy trying all kinds of dishes. I was raised to cook from scratch and I can't imagine any other way of eating. I don't care for cooking from a box very much. Although, I do end up using them on occasion.

I am not a real fan of cucumbers. But, I found I really liked this recipe. It was very good and I will be making it again in the near future. — sgrishka 2/12/2012

Healthified Mediterranean-Style Chicken and Pasta

My picky eaters even love this! The only thing I have changed about the recipe since I started making it was I added some canned spaghetti sauce and ground chuck sometimes to change it up. — mamabear542000 10/16/2011

Boracho Bean Soup or Frijoles a la Charra (Restaurant Style)

I was looking at this recipe with my niece (who is mexican and cooks mexican dishes) and she said Boracho means drunk in spanish and the only thing missing in this recipe is a bottle of beer. She is a VERY GOOD cook. — webtexan 9/22/2007
Beef Enchiladas

Beef Enchiladas

I really liked the recipe! The only thing I changed when I made it was that I added more of the spices and added cilantro too. 9/2/2007
Taco Meatloaf

Taco Meatloaf

Although this recipe is great on it's own, I had to add a few things that my family are used to in a mexican dish. For instance: cilantro, garlic, cumin, and lime juice. My husband likes to eat this with some hot peppers also. — SLCGUY 5/27/2007
