Brigadeiros the traditional way!
About this Cook
I was born in São Paulo, Brazil. Spent half of my life there. Got married to a brazilian whom I met in the US (we were high school sweethearts), mother of one toddler, living here for over a decade. I recently started a home-based business, making brazilian cakes and sweets to order, for all sorts of occasions. I took some basic cake decorating classes and I always look forward to improve and one day, become a 'real' cake decorator, making wedding cakes and who knows maybe having my own little cake business!
My favorite things to cook
Desserts, pasta.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Homemade simple brazilian dishes: rice, beans, beef, pasta, brazilian 'churrasco' (BBQ), desserts and breads.
My cooking triumphs
Cakes and sweets. I'm always trying out new recipes to come up with new ideas for cakes.
My cooking tragedies
When I was yonger, it took me a long time to learn how to make the perfect brazilian rice. Most of the times, it was too sticky and gooey! =)
