My name is Jeanine, I'm 25, and mother to a beautiful baby boy, Caleb. I've always truly enjoyed cooking and have been making this site very useful lately. It's great. Although I appreciate my wonderful Panamanian heritage, I have my own cooking style and love experimenting and trying new things.
My favorite things to cook
Cookies! Yet I definitely love stove top cooking. Indian inspired food is probably my favorite to put together. You can find me in the kitchen making anything from omelets, macaroni salad and shepherd's pie to bakes, curried squash and chicken soup!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Caribbean and hispanic dishes such as arroz con pollo, Mom's bakes, Grandma's banana fritters, and much much much more.
My cooking triumphs
Cutting a WHOLE CHICKEN into parts! This was triumphant for me since I hate getting messy with chicken and never did it before. It was perfect, and I made the best honey baked chicken and stuffing with it!
My cooking tragedies
RICE RICE RICE. I dunno. I used to be such a pro at cooking it, but lately I've been getting a mixture of undercooked, overcooked, and perfectly cooked grains. Disastrous!
