What's in a spice name? Typically, I don't give it much thought. I know many spices and use many spices, from cinnamon to oregano, nutmeg to paprika.But one of my favorite spices also happens to have a strange name. It's just that I didn't realize it had a strange name until I heard it repeated… MORE

About this Cook
My mom was a master chef... okay, she was a stay-at-home mom but her food was magnificent and nothing will ever top that for me. But I got so used to her cooking that when I branched out on my own I knew how to make nothing. It's taken me quite some time to realize that I love to cook and to create edible dishes. I've been married for nine-plus years and have just recently dived head-first into cooking. So far, so good! And if you need any tips (not that I'd have much to offer) you can e-mail me at lbueno99 at hotmail dot com.
My favorite things to cook
Around September or October of 2007, I had little interest in cooking and baking. This has since changed. Literally overnight I became interested in making my own food and my wife's been loving life ever since. I'd like to say that I've grown a liking to trying new things but almost everything I cook is new to me. I like to try chicken recipes and add ingredients I either have never tasted (sun-dried tomatoes) or have rarely used before (balsamic vinegar). And I owe it all to!
My favorite family cooking traditions
After I got settled into cooking/baking, I wanted to start a new family tradition. It seemed strange to just up and start one but all traditions have a starting point, right? So in August of 2008, I decided that I wanted to build Saturday mornings around muffins. I wanted to start a tradition of making muffins every Saturday mornings so my girls (then 4 and 2) would grow up with thoughts of warm homemade muffins every Saturday instead of cartoons and/or cinnamon rolls. With the help and support of the wonderful cooks on All Recipes, I forged the new tradition and have made muffins every Saturday without fail since the final weekend of August '08. My favorite muffins... well, there have been many successes and will be many more triumphs in the months and years to follow so you'll just have to keep up with all the good and the bad on my All Recipes blog.
My cooking triumphs
Christmas 2007! We had my parents, three brothers (two of whom brought girlfriends) over for a Christmas breakfast. My wife and I prepared dilligently. We made a sausage skillet and Farmer's Casserole for our dual main dishes, had bacon, rolls and Sarah's Applesauce on the side, had standard hot chocolate and Hot Spiced Cider for drinks and Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread, Raspberry Crumb Cake, Molasses Sugar Cookies and regular sugar cookies with Decorator Frosting for desserts and everything went fast! All the items in CAPS we got from right here at
My cooking tragedies
Let's hope this is the worst of it, but I tried to make pepperoni bread from here on this site and I botched it. The dough kicked my butt. shame too because it looked so good. And then more recently, I forgot to put milk in some French toast I was trying to make. That was a disaster.

Polish Cabbage Noodles
Good meal. Made as is except I used yellow onions instead of red. Served with kielbasa sausage. Looking forward to the leftovers!

Simple Carnitas
Awesome recipe. Very easy to make, and very flavorful. Served them with pico de gallo and corn tortillas. Even my sorta picky 6- and 4-year-old daughters inhaled this. Superb.

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs
Really liked this recipe. I just did the meatballs since I already had some marinara sauce but next time I'm going to make the entire recipe. The meatballs were delicious, and I liked how you could cook the meatballs along with the sauce.
