My favorite things to cook
I love to play around with new ideas, changing up ingredients and spices as I cook. I almost never cook the same dish twice. Sadly, being a college student, I almost never have the time or the cash to experiment with all the cooking I'd like, but I do my best! Dishes that involve meat or pasta sauces are my specialty, as well as salads and dressings. I'm not the best at baking, but I have the staples down pat - I can make brownies and chocolate chip cookies in no time flat!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Being half-Chilean, there are tons of Chilean recipes that have become traditional in my family - empanadas, all sorts of bean soups, pantrucas, humitas. I've gotten all the recipes from my mother, but I got the creative flair from my father. When he sets out to cook something original, sometimes it's tasty and sometimes not so much, but it's always origina, that's for sure...
