About this Cook
I live on the beautiful central coast of California. I love to cook for my family and friends. My husband is my biggest inspiration. He was a very picky eater once upon a time- now he tries everything I make!
My favorite things to cook
I love to explore different cultures through food. My favorite thing about Allrecipes is the availability of regional U.S. recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have a very multicultural background- Midwestern, filipina, Mexican,Chilean. It makes for great family gatherings. My mom's lumpia are always a hit.
My cooking triumphs
My most recent cooking triumph was our World Cup 2010 brunch- huevos rancheros casserole, arroz con pollo, cochinita pibil, Dutch gruyere potatos au gratin, ceviche, and sangria.

Vegetable Pastry Purses
I was looking for something to serve for Christmas eve lunch. This was easy to prepare and I had all the ingredients on hand except for the marsala wine. I substituted white for the filling and did not make the optional sauce on the side. I did add a half cup shredded cheese. the whole family enjoyed it. Thanks.

Deep South Fried Chicken
This recipe is a big hit! I have made it a few times now. I use canola oil instead of Crisco, but other than that, I follow to the letter and it is consistently good!

Louisiana Shrimp Creole II
This was great. I can't eat bell peppers anymore, so I had to leave those out and I also omitted the cornstarch. I seasoned it with a small amount of cayenne and Emeril's essence. I served this with steamed rice and breaded, fried okra. It was the perfect meal for a cold winter night!
