Live Life to the Fullest for Tomarrow is Lurking in the Shadows
About this Cook
I am somewhat newly married. 3 years. Currently living with my 2 dogs, and 1 cat, as Husband is in Afghanistan. I Love to cook, reading cookbooks is a hobby I enjoy.
My favorite things to cook
It is a toss up, I love cooking Cuban, the love and care that goes into each dish is very satisfying. Greek cooking is another love along with Argentine cooking. I enjoy the challenge of cooking Korean dishes. I am never bored.
My favorite family cooking traditions
baking cookies for Christmas. The joy of cooking for a group of people that come together for a special meal. I love seeing the satisfaction on the faces that have come together for a main purpose.
My cooking triumphs
the first dinner for the new inlaws, and new step children. It was ohhh so much work but it was all worth it. I made argentine empanadas, with beef, red enchilasas as well as green chicken enchiladas, queso fresco, pico de gallo,real refried beans, cuban black beans and saffron rice, with pigeon peas. virgin sangria for the kids with lots of yummy fruit for them, and the real deal for the grups, red and a pitcher of white sangria. and for dessert...what else coconut flan.
My cooking tragedies
humm there have been so many. HaHaHa. I think the one that stands out is when I was taking a gourmet cooking class in College, I Was young and the classic starving student. I had an assignment to make yorkshire pudding with home made parsley butter noodles, it was the first assignment. My roomate picked up the flour for me...I never really looked at it, he picked up whole wheat, and I didn;t notice it, needless to say it was a disaster! it was the heavest most enedible mess of goo ever. it called for chicken pieces to be put into the pudding. I put in raw, didn;t brown off. it was bad. I learned to research the dish and read all labels carefully. The class was a blast, I loved cooking the coquilles san jack as we affectionately called it. it was lovily and ohh so yummy.

Monterey Jack Salsa
I just added some salt, and made my own yummy italian dressing. I loved all of the other ingredients and always have roasted chili's in the freezer.

Cuban-Style Yucca
My lovily cuban neighbor shared many recipes with me when he saw my love for cooking, as with many reviews given, the cook time is a bit off, as the yucca in the markets is not as good as the fresh that AL would bring over from his garden, if fresh, than about 20 mins if not fresh than 25-30, some things he recommended: Lime juice instead of lemon, it gives a different dimention, I also was told to heat the oil than pour over the lemon or lime, garlic, and zest, if you like, along with a couple pats of butter, it gives a lovily addition to this dish. I than garnish with citantro, and finely chopped green onion... but will be trying the chives...it looks really yummy on the picture.

Scalloped Pineapple
I Love this! My Mom makes this and I have made a few changes. I prefer day old bread, like a sourdough, or country white. Not wonder bread...too gummy. I use the whole rings of pineapple and cut in 1/4's. It adds a different dimention if 1/4 cup or less...to taste, of citrus zest is used. Orange is fantastic, but I like Lime or lemon best. Do not skimp on the Butter! This is sooo yummy!
