Happened to have a lot of spare time on my hands as of late and decided to enhance my culinary skills. My forte is Spanish Creole cuisine but I am exploring Italian in depth.
My favorite things to cook
Desserts are my favorite things to whip up. Best things for me are cookies and cakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
White rice, yellow rice , tomales, roast pork, turkey, beef, venison, chicken, goat etc. Basically everything I've mentioned and more prepared spanish creolle style. Thank you Grandmother;)
My cooking triumphs
Pizza and Calzones!!! This was intricate. I haven't perfected the dough proportions yet but with practice I will.
My cooking tragedies
I attempted a traditional Albanian recipe that included red peppers, pealed tomatoes and feta cheese. What a disaster.
