About this Cook
I grew up a Military brat. I claim McCoy, Virginia as my hometown, even though I've never lived there - it's where my parents were born and raised and where most of my happiest childhood memories were made. I am married to a Salvadoran and after 11 years, we are still stumbling across cultural differences! I am the mother of 3 boys, stepmother of a boy and 3 girls. The youngest of the seven is 10 - the oldest 22. We celebrated the arrival of our first grandchild in October and will welcoe our second in May. My husband has paid me the highest cook's compliment - I can cook just like his mother!!
My favorite things to cook
Being from El Salvador, my husband prefers the freshest ingredients - just about every main dish is made with fresh tomatoes, green pepper and onion. Salvadoran cuisine is not spicy! I like to try new recipes and am currently trying to master yeast breads. I love to cook for others and am extremely satisfied when my efforts are acknowledged and appreciated!
My favorite family cooking traditions
For holidays, I always open my home to those that I have met that have no family in the area, no where else to spend the holiday or have never experienced American traditions. Thanksgiving is my favorite and have hosted as many as 30 people for dinner!
My cooking triumphs
Learning to prepare my husband's favorite dishes from his childhood. I can prepare a mean Quesadilla Salvadorena, tortillas by hand as well as pupusas.
My cooking tragedies
Biscuits that resemble cookies!!
