About this Cook
I learned to cook because it was cheaper than eating out all the time so I had to, now I can't stop and I would rather be in the kitchen cooking for someone I love than going out to a restaurant.
My favorite things to cook
Caribbean cuisine, cookies, pasta salads, anything so spicy it makes me see colors and eggs every which way are some of my favorite things to cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
straight up Puerto Rican & Dominican food
My cooking triumphs
I have finally mastered the steak, I can make a perfect juicy burger, and my pancakes have been known to put people back to sleep (but in a good way) ;-P
My cooking tragedies
Cakes always seem to deflate on me. It's sad really.

Tasty Tuna Burgers
These were really yummy, easy and cheap! I love this recipe and will definitely make it again. I put my patties in my George Foreman grill like an other reviewer and not having to flip them they came out perfect. Thanks :-)

This was so good. First white sangria I ever had, usually make red now my man likes it better than white and requests this one instead whenever I say I'm making sangria. great recipe, although... Should it be called plasma instead? lol

Homestyle Potato Chips
Yum! I made just made these and half the batch is gone already. Like an other reviewer, I used my potato peeler to make the slices and it worked out just fine. I did two batches with different seasonings, one with salt and vinegar the other was bbq. I just mixed sugar, smoked paprika, garlic powder and a little salt and they were slammin'. Thanks for a delicious easy recipe!
