My husband and I really enjoy cooking since we are out in the suburbs now. We love having dinner parties and gatherings at our home. He does the grilling and I do the the indoor, flavorful cooking! We are proud parents of a beautiful 6 month old son. I often alter recipes with lowfat alternantives since I'm trying to lose these last 4 pounds. All recipes is by far my favorite site! Oh my favorite substitue...instead of white cooking wine...PINOT GRIGIO!
My favorite things to cook
Chicken Cordon Bleu and stuffed mushrooms. I got the chiken cordon bleu off of this site and I think it was voted #1 under ratings. GOTTA MAKE THAT ONE ESP IF YOU'RE EXPECTING COMPANY!!!!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I really enjoy staying true to my roots and heritage . I feel a great since of pride when I make Cuban food...Ropa Vieja and black beans. I love cooking that for my friends. Its a way of letting them know who I am and sharing something personal with them. An extension of my love and appreciation.
My cooking triumphs
Hands down...its the CHICKEN CORDON BLEU I got off of this website. I hosted a large dinner party and ended up giving the recipe to everyone that evening. They wouldn't leave without it. Swiss cheese melting into white wine....succulent!
My cooking tragedies
Once I prepared a special bacon wrapped shrimp with teriayki glaze for my husband...and the shrimp was not cooked all the way through...he couldn't bring himself to eat it even after I cooked it longer. I researched preparation and cooking shrimp and soon realized that 4 minutes on the grill didn't pertain to those gi-normous shrimp imported from China. Guess we should really buy more things from the good ole USA!
