Me and my beautiful bride!
About this Cook
I live in Bolivia, South America. I am working with a group of Deaf to establish a Church in the city of Sucre. I started cooking when I was 12 years old. I took Culinary Arts class for 6 years and learned so much from my teacher. I love cooking. I love picking a new recipe and playing around with it until I've made it my own! Things get interesting here in Bolivia since many ingredients are not available.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I want my 2 daughters to grow up loving to cook too. Every chance possible I have them helping me in the kitchen. I want cooking to be a fun family time.

Beef Bourguignon II
I made this recipe as written. I agree with all the other comments that the house smells INCREDIBLE! Now my dish for all of the smell, had very little flavor. Truth be told, I didn't have the right size pan. I can't find a good pan here in Bolivia. That being said, mine boiled over and I lost a lot of my liquid. Also, I don't actually drink wine, so I don't know if I had a quality wine for the dish. They are mostly Bolivian wines here and I have NO idea what one would yield me the best tasting meal. I will definitely try this one again . . . but I'll be looking for more flavor next time!

Emilia's Cuban Black Beans
I made this recipe as is because I wanted the 'Cuban' flavor. This was not a huge hit with the family. They grinned and bore it. Everybody thought it was too spicy. So, with the left overs I poured some condensed milk over the dish and then grated some sharp cheese to top it off. The milk cut the spice down and the cheese . . . well, cheese makes everything better!!!
