Clock out, finish your last minute shopping, pack if your heading out of town. The day before a holiday is always chaotic, and you are guaranteed to have a million things on your brain. If you are this year’s Thanksgiving host, it’s even worst. What am I going to cook? What should I cook first, and what should I save for the end? How will I keep it warm? Do I have enough food? The list goes on and on, and can drive you insane. Well don’t fret! Teresa has a few Thanksgiving tips to make the cooking experience just a little bit better.

In a previous post, I spoke about how Teresa Tirado was my #Foodie hero. Everyone that is a good cook, has someone who's cooking style inspires them and matches their taste buds. And even those whom cooking is not their ministry, at least has someone who they love visiting for dinner. For Teresa, that person was her grandmother. Take a look at my interview with her, as I dig deep into when she discovered her love for food and cooking...
LAUREN: When did you discover your love for food?
TERESA: I first discovered my love for food at a very young age. No, I was not the fat kid, actually I was the opposite. I was very small and petite. My grandmother raised me and that made times hard on my family. We didn't always have the best of food, but what we had grandma would make it taste amazing! I would get off the school bus wondering what she had prepared for dinner with the scraps that were in the refrigerator. As I got older and times got better (more resources and income) my grandmother and myself were able to splurge a little more with recipes and ingredients but never too far away from the home cooking we loved.
