Cuban American girl raised in Miami. Speak fluent English and Spanish. Didn't learn to cook until I got married 11 years ago, and now I love it!
My favorite things to cook
I love roasting meats, pork, chicken. One of my favorites is a stuffed pork loin, butterflied and pounded, stuffed with a mixture of olive oil, roasted pine nuts, sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, feta cheese and wrapped up. Drizzle olive oil and salt and pepper and roast. Delish!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Coming home at the end of the day, playing some music, and having the kitchen to myself to cook the evening meal. It helps me unwind. (Oh, and a Martini doesn't hurt, either.)
My cooking tragedies
Cooking a chicken casserole for too long on low heat. The chicken shredded itself!! And with 8 people waiting to eat!! Luckily they were very good friends. There were more.....too many to write!
