About this Cook
Learned how to cook by being thrown into the fire. Got a job in a cafe with no recipes. Had to make soups/salads/sandwiches daily based on what produce was in the store that was unsellable.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite foods are Caribbean. I have a knack for seeing what's in the pantry/fridge/freezer and turning it into something wonderful. This lends itself to rarely having the same thing twice. :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holidays, Puerto Rican style!
My cooking triumphs
If my 9 year old son eats it, I consider it a triumph!
My cooking tragedies
I am a terrible baker. It involves too much science and paying attention to recipes. I look at recipes as inspiration, not fact. I have great respect for Bakers and wish I was one of them. But following directions is just not in my make-up!

Caribbean Sweet Potato Salad
We loved it! I didn't have cilantro on hand - thought I did, but was mistaken. So I used green onions instead. Also, I cooked 3 pcs of bacon and crunched up over it instead of the peanuts. It was yuumy!

Versatile Chicken Salad
Versatile Chicken Salad

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.

Beautiful Broccoli Salad

Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
