I 've always been more of a baker (started baking when I was 10 years old) but lately I am very interested in Spanish cuisine, esp Tapas. I enjoy cooking savories that combine baking elements.
My favorite things to cook
Cookies, quick bread pies, savory dishes with pastry.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom is from Morrocan so my family esp enjoys exotic, ethnic cuisine. I love the Eastern Heartland recipes too, where I was recall big family feasts of steamed Chesapeke Bay Blue crabs!
My cooking triumphs
I have a homegrown starter based on the La Brea method which I have been using for almost 9 years. I am family famous for my sourdough breads.
My cooking tragedies
I don't like to handle raw meat but I am working on that.
