I am a Latina from Queens, NY. I have a degree in Journalism have worked for MORE Magazine, VIBE Magazine and Car and Driver/Road & Track Magazine and currently work in education (love the kids & cant beat the vacation!)i am married to my college sweetheart...I admire food cultures and the creativity that other cooks/chefs have- something I wish to perfect over time.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook fish, shrimp, empanadas, chilis, steaks, pastas, stew chicken. I love to cook latin/caribbean/west indian dishes. I am not a big baker but I wish I had the patience for it :-)
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love when my family gets together in the summer time and we make all the food that we dont have the time to make during the hustle and bustle of the work week, like: shrimp, chicken and steak emapanadas. Carimayolas- its cooked yuca mashed kind of like a paste and u place cooked ground beefin the middle close it up and fry it! yummy
My cooking triumphs
For the first time I made my own gorgonzola cheese sause and baked my own bread!!!
My cooking tragedies
Dont think I have had one yet b/c if I think I cant make it i chicken out and play it safe- I have to take more chances!
