Bitesize Bio

I'm a house wife. I enjoy doing arts & crafts, cooking and baking.

I remember when I first got married (2010) I had NO cooking skills what's so ever!!!  I had to do something to learn and be able to cook for my husband or else we were gonna die of HUNGER!!! LOL  So, I decided to search videos online and little by little I started to make my own version recipes and guess what? I became good at it. YES!!! I can cook!!!

My husband can not believe that not knowing how to even broil water (sarcasm), l learned so quick. Now I can cook Chinese, Japanese, Italian, Vegetarian, Vegan, Mexican of course , bake cakes and desserts.

Every time I cook something new he asks me (in spanish) "Es de la cocina de la chaparrita?" (Is it from Shorty's Kitchen?), he calls me Chaparrita (Shorty). So I decided to name my facebook page: La Cocina de la Chaparrita, where I post most of my dishes. 

But a few months ago I experienced the magic of cookie decorating and I LOVED IT!!! 

It's amazing! Everything I enjoy doing in one (art and bake). How great is that? I know I'm still in a beginners level and I need a looooot of practice but I hope someday I can make it to the TOP TEN.

I'm glad I logged in to this site, because I know I will learn alot from all of you and maybe let go of my fears and start giving some cookie decorating lessons soon. Crossing my fingers.

Good luck and happy days to all of you.
