I was born in New Rochelle,NY on January 19, 1980. I lived in NY until I was 10 years old. I then moved to South Florida with my parents. I married a great guy at 21 years old and we moved to NE Georgia in 2005.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking Puerto Rican food. That's what I grew up on and I love it!
I love learning about foods from other countries and cultures. I am always willing to try almost anything, and if I can find a recipe for it,you can bet it will be on my dinner table atleast once.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving and Christmas are always big in my family, and I think in hispanic families in general. We always have Pernil also known as Lechon or Roasted pork shoulder, arroz con gandules aka yellow rice with pigeon peas, and pasteles, a puerto rican style tamale.We do it every year wether we are together or apart. When holiday dining with my in-laws we have traditional american food. Turkey, mashed potatos, sweet potato casserole, cranberry sauce, ect, ect.I love that too!
