Though I was born in Cuba, I have lived most of my life in the United States except for 5 years I spent in the area of the Panama Canal and another 5 years in a few places in Germany as a member of the US Armed Forces.
I have a son and a daughter that are my pride and joy and two beautiful grandchildren that I love as much as my own children.
I would love to learn and be able to make wine, but I wonder if the climate in Florida would allow me to do so.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try new recipes, so I am always cooking something different. However, I learned how to make puertorrican pasteles,and it seems that everyone in the family are in favor of devouring them.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making ham or pork croquettes.
My cooking triumphs
Everytime my children or grandchild tell me that they loved the meal.
My cooking tragedies
Some years ago while living in Stuttgart-Vaihingen, Germany, I had some friends invited for dinner. I was not able to buy bread at the store so I decided to improvise and make some buns. Almost at the time of putting them in the oven I remember I had not added the butter so I just added the butter at the last minute and baked the buns. The biggest tragedy is that I did not write down the recipe, but they were the best buns I ever tasted. :(
