Homer and Me
About this Cook
I love food. I love to plan my meals for the week, and make one big grocery trip. My family loves my weekly cooking plan, and is usually different every week.
My favorite things to cook
Chicken and yellow rice. Omelets are a great way to use those bits and pieces of veggies and deli meats in the frig. Everyone love my apple pie, although I must confess I did not come up with the recipe. The twist I put in it is to use different kinds of cooking apples, instead of just Granny Smith.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family comes from the island of Cuba. We love to eat rice. The flavor of the food is what counts. We experiment with our sauces and spices. Not too spicy, however.
My cooking triumphs
Every Meal is prepared with love. I love to cook for people, so friends and family are always welcome to stop by.
My cooking tragedies
I have learned that making something from scratch is better than using substitute ingredients. I make my own crust, so it turns out different every time. Alhough always delicious, sometimes the presentation leaves something to be desired!

Tim's Green Bean Casserole Extraordinaire
This recipte tasted like it needed something. There was no mention of any spices or salt, so I did not put any. In addition does not seem healthy with all the cheese and butter. I DID like the cornflake topping however, and will probably use that as an alternative to other recipes.
