About this Cook
I have been cooking since I was about 10 years old. It began with simple things such as hot dogs, eggs, and oatmeal, and progressed from there. Cooking is my therapy. After a long day, I look forward to be in my sanctuary and whipping up some deliciousness for my loved ones.
My favorite things to cook
I LOVE to layer things. Even if they sound kind of weird. To me it's abstract meets architecture meets culinary arts. I like to make variations of Shepherds pies and I am also great at typical Puertorican cookery.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I haven't established any yet, but hope to soon and pass them down to my daughters.
My cooking triumphs
I catered for my coworker's daughter's baby shower. It was a hit. I made my own mojo marinated chicken breast, baked BBQ chicken parts, my mother-in-laws meatballs, rice with pidgeon peas, potato salad, my Roll out Rustica pizza, and my hubby and I carved a watermelon like a stroller and filled it with fresh fruit. Everyone loved it and encouraged me to make it my business, which I am.
My cooking tragedies
My Ugly mint cake this past Christmas. I made a ready to bake chocolate cake from a box, and thought I would be cool and add some sour cream to moisten it up. It worked, so I decided to keep improvising. I wanted it to look festive and Christmas-ey, so I made a glaze from powdered sugar and green food coloring. Mind you this was going on a BROWN chocolate cake. I also added mint and made a filling from the same glaze, sour cream and more mint. It looked like something swamp thing choked up. And it tasted like a candy cane dipped in rancid milk.
Recipe Reviews 1 review
I don't think this can technically be called a Sachertorte. Although it's original recipe is kept under as much lock and key as the Coca Cola formula, there are certain key ingredients. An apricot glaze and unsweetened cream are the two ingredients that differentiate this from just a typical chocolate cake. I enjoyed the fact that this recipe was easy to make but at the end, it was not impressive nor was it what I expected.
