Shortbread Cookies III
This is me
About this Cook
I just finished the last year of law, and ny favorit hobby above everithyng is ofcourse COOKING, as my carrer is a little stressing, sometimes I forget about it, and have a fun time in the kitchen. Allrecipes.com has helped me a lot in that, allways gives me nices and fresh ideas, that's why I love the site so much.....
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy cooking, anything that seems delicious and some times challenging, that, I try.... Lately I've developed a interest in baking and vegetarian stuff.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is so close, we are a crowd, and we take any hollyday, birthday or special ocassion as an excuse to have a nice meal. We use to prepare "Sancocho con Pollo" which is a typical soup from the southern part of my country Colombia.
My cooking triumphs
With the time I have improved my cooking, so, as my triumphs I can mention a peaches cake, an "Encocado con Camarones"(Coconut Flavored Rice with Shrimps, which is a tipycall recipe from the coast of my country) my family loved it, and a Chicken Pizza....
My cooking tragedies
One of the first things that I tried to make where Churros, they just didn't came out right, didn't even looke like churros; but I haven't given up, I'll try it again, when I feel more prepared. Other traggey mexican flour tortilas, in spite that it's supossed to be an easy thing I wasn't succesfull.... I tend to think that Mexican is not my stuff. Anyway I'll keep tyrng. That's the only way to learn; isn't it?

Fried Plantains
Nice recipe. Though, when I fry plantains, I preffer to use some that are not that ripe, when the skin has a bright yellow color without any black spots, because when plantains in this stage are fried, they absorb a lot less oil, and still are sweet. Give a try to my hint, you won't regret...

Chewy Coconut Cookies
I just made the cookies, they are delicious. I had sweet grated coconut, so, i reduced the amount of sugar, anyway I don't like sweet things too much. My family loved them, and my house is steel smelling loike baked coockies....
