Mrs. Silvia Marin To All Instructors

My name is Silvia. I was born in central Mexico in the state of Aguascalientes which translates to hot water. My father immigrated to this country in the 70's as a agricultural worker (avocados mainly). He tells me stories of how he rolled flour tortillas daily. My uncle lived with him and often didn't want to help out. My dad would tell him, "You don't work, you don't eat."

Our father brought us to the states in the late 70's. He would tell my sisters and I, "Go help your mom cook dinner. We'd say, "She doesn't need help. His response was, "You stand there and watch and learn."

A home cooked meal always brought us together and that filled my mom's heart to watch us eat.

I inherited my mom's love for the kitchen and enjoy cooking for my family, my friends and occasionally at retreats and youth dinners. 

I am a stay at home mom and wife. Homemaker by choice. With the economy today, I make as much as I can from scratch and enjoy stocking up my freezers when I see  a good sale.

We have chickens and haven't had to buy eggs for about 5 years now except a few weeks in the winter season. 

I like to cook all types of foods not just Mexican. I read menus when I go out to eat and make mental notes of things I can prepare at home.

My hobbies include cooking, baking, crafting, making kombucha, nature hikes, going to the beach. I love to watch YouTube videos on gardening, cooking, homesteading while I cook or wash dishes.

I pray to God to give me many more years on this earth to watch my son grow. When I asked him the other day what he would miss the most when I'm no longer here he said, "Refried beans and tortillas!
