In August of 2009 my daughter Natalia left for Italy, where she would participate in an exchange Master's program between Carnegie Mellon University (her school) and The University of Bologna in Bologna, Italy. The program would last about 5 months, which meant that for the first time… MORE

About this Cook
I was born and raised in Puerto Rico (grew up in Humacao) and after getting married in 1985 I moved to the continental US. My husband was in the Army and therefore we lived in several states: Kansas, Arizona, Texas (El Paso). He then left the active duty service and we have lived in: Maryland, Texas (Rio Grande Valley) and now in Allentown, Pennsylvania. Our daughters are now 25 and 22.

My favorite things to cook
I truly have no favorite, but if I have to choose I would say desserts because those are the ones that generate the most WOW effect from others. I cook traditional puertorrican fare and also all kinds of cuisines.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving and Christmas menu. I have tried different turkey recipes over the years, but the one that stuck is the one where I cook the bird in a roaster oven with all kinds of veggies and a whole bottle of wine poured on top. No dry turkey meat in this house. Ever. It's in my shared recipes (Pavo al Vino).
My cooking triumphs
The recipe I invented for fluffy cream cheese frosting is by far my best accomplishment. The second is my Tortilla Soup, also my own style. The most legendary -but not my own recipe- are my Cinnamon Rolls. Big, gooey and delicious. The best recipe ever!
My cooking tragedies
One time I made one of my really good cakes and beautifully decorated it so the girls and I could take it to my husband's office for a surprise birthday party. My oldest daughter (10 or so at the time) was holding it in her lap in the front seat. I had to step on the break and the cake went flying to my daughter's feet. We had to stop on the side of the highway to try and put together the cake the best we could. It wasn't as pretty, but we still managed to sing Happy Birthday to him.

The Best Thai Coconut Soup
Excellent soup!!! Thanks for sharing it! As good Or better than the restaurant variety. I didn't use curry because it's not my favorite flavor (plus I wanted it to be whiter in color). So good.

Deep Fried Corn Meal Sticks (Sorullitos de Maiz) with Dipping Sauce
Absolutely fabulous!! I have been making sorullitos for years and experimented with the proportions with varying results, so I wanted to try this recipe. I am very happy to report that the particular ratio of ingredients here is SPOT ON. If you are looking for a sorullito that is crunchy outside and tender soft on the inside, with a taste on the sweeter side, THIS IS IT!!! (but of course you can reduce the sugar and increase the salt a bit if you want it to have more of a savory taste). I did put a stick of extra sharp cheddar cheese inside of each piece for an extra YUMMMM Thanks for the recipe Marisa!!!

Chicken Pa Nang
Very yummy!! I can't have spicy foods and used a mild curry instead of the red, that's why the sauce in my pictures looks whiter. I also seasoned the chicken *lightly* before cooking it and then adjusted the salt level at the end.
