My mom had an unbelievable amount of hand written recipes, I loved that she took the time to do this and pass on her love of cooking to me. I don't like sweets that much but love to cook savory dishes while sipping a good wine, it is my way to relax.
My favorite things to cook
Peruvian recipes are my favorite!! arroz con pollo, aguadito, lomo saltado, pescado a lo macho, causa, y arroz chaufa. I also love Italian dishes and I am famous for my tacos and burritos as well.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We celebrate thanksgiving at my house, everyone brings a dish and my daughter Alexandra makes the yummiest desserts ever, it is family and dearest friends cooking, laughing, and just being together. I started the tradition of celebrating xmas on January 6th (three kings day) that way everyone's agenda is clear and more relaxed.
My cooking triumphs
Bacon wrapped meatloaf, lasagna, home made tomato gravy with ribs, but my piece "de resistance" has to be roasted leg of lamb!
My cooking tragedies
home made bread!!!! we could have used it as a door stop!!
