About this Cook
I come from a big family....and cooking was something my mom was good at and still is...everything I learned about cooking I learned from her! She's just one of those people that knows how to put stuff together and its delicious and everybody always wants the recipe....She is the best!
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy all kinds of cooking...winter I prefer to bake more and make soups.......Summer more grilling and making desserts. I just enjoy cooking more for friends and family more than anything..watching them enjoy something I made...That puts a SMILE on my face.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I enjoy making traditional food from my country Middle-East...around the holidays there are many traditional foods...and I also like to try to make recipes from different countries and cultures....One of my favorites, having had a Portuguese boyfriend for many years. Who left Massachusettes to move here to my state...I am sure it was hard, leaving a huge Portuguese community I really started to make all the recipes for him and learned very well so he would not be homesick and be deprived of such delicious food...He even said, WOW! you made that just like my mom makes it....NOT BAD HUH? for a non-Portugi-Girl...I would say!
My cooking triumphs
I just enjoy cooking....My triumph would be if EVERYBODY enjoyed the food and there were no left overs...than that would be good enough for me!
My cooking tragedies
Oh yeah!! I have had a few of those....lets put it this way, I prefere NOT to remember..hahahhaha

Cream Cheese Tart Shells
I made these tonight.Pretty easy to make!! but the actual crust had NO flavor.I made queijadas..which are Portuguese custard desserts. I think next time I make this recipe I will use a little salt in the mixture.I didnt get the crust I was looking for the kind they use in the Portuguese bakerys!!
