About this Cook
I live with my husband,daugter, and 2 cats! We love to travel, exericse, meet with friends, and read
My favorite things to cook
In summer, I enjoy cooking things that are very easy and fresh with few steps. Come the colder months, I will cook/prepare items that are more challenging. I make a big pot of arroz y habiculeas (rice and red beans) each week so we can have a little of that each day. We prefer healthier foods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother was a wonderful cook. Anything out of her kitchen was great. I have many fond memories of cooking with her. My mother is a wonderful cook as well. Always cooked wholesome foods with fresh ingredients-never processed. Food and meal time was an important part of the day. A time to be with your family and friends. Never rushed.
My cooking triumphs
If I can prepare meals for my family or when we entertain...and everyone has a good time...that is a triumph
My cooking tragedies
Too many to count!

Habichuelas Guisadas
This recipe makes nice flavorful beans. My famlily recipes are very similar to this one. I add a little more sofito and some chopped alcaparrado. Alcaparrado is a mixture of green olives stuffed with pimentos and capers. My family puts green olives in everthing! This is such a classic dish, it goes with everything. My husband and I put some in a bowl, place a fried egg on top and dip plantian pieces in it for breakfast and dinner a couple times a week!

Jibarito
¡Qué Rico! I LOVE these sandwiches. They make you happy when you make them and eat them...at least they do in our house. I always made mine with chicken, but the skirt steak is excellente!

Golden Rum Cake
This is a great cake! I suggest using Bacardi dark rum (por supuesto!)In fact-Bacardi put out a recipe similiar to this. I garnished mine with marachino cherries....Do not be afraid to use all the rum! I poked holes in the cake so that the rum would absorb.
