About this Cook
I have been a vegetarian for over ten years, but I do prepare a little seafood. Being raised in a family of Hispanic and Italians eating is our way to communicate love.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking beans, soups, and usually incorporate Indian or Creole spices. I try to keep my salt use to a minimum because everyone enjoys a different level of saltiness, and it is an easily remedied problem without shocking the tastebuds of people not crazy about salt.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking with my grandma, especially during Christmas time will always be remembered. Making homemade Mexican feasts is also a favorite.
My cooking triumphs
Most days are a triumph, but once in a while something comes our a little strange.
My cooking tragedies
In fourth grade we had to make these muffins with jelly. I asked my dad if baking soda and baking powder were the same thing. He said yes, but the only thing I have ever seen him prepare is Rice a Roni and grilling. Well obviously, the baking soda made things a little off.

Banana Sour Cream Bread
Only five stars if you set the oven at 325 for an hour and five minutes. Otherwise this would have been raw in the center. I didn't have any vanilla, and I used reduced fat sour cream, still moist and not too sweet. I added a crumb topping, which was a nice finish.

Lentil Loaf
Very good, followed others suggestions: used ketchup instead of paste, onion soup instead of veg soup mix, and added a little extra spice w/ about 1/2 tsp of chili powder, sauteed onion, and 1/2 tsp of curry powder. Everyone really liked this one.

Kiki's Borracho (Drunken) Beans
Wonderful recipe, I have made this several times. Fire roasted tomatoes and a little cumin and chili powder added even more delicious flavor. This is great with or without the beer, so don't worry if you don't have one. thanks for this staple recipe!!
