Yes, I was part of the original crew of "THE" Chef Tony :). What a wonderful experience it was. I created the group on Google in attempts to not clog up the AR recipe exchange forum and so we could more easily converse and I could set up the travel schedule for this top chef! Click MORE

About Me
I am latino and I love to cook all types of food including those traditional latin recipes. My tastes definitely have changed the older I have gotten and the more I have learned...especially from my first Sweet Orange Chicken recipe at the age of 14!!! My motto is: Recipes are a guideline to discovering what you like best. So learn, practice, experiment, and don't be afraid to make a mess. Happy Cooking!
My favorite things to cook
hmmm...let's see. I love to bake. Some of my favorite items are my "ridiculously simple banana cake", cookies (i love cookies), brownies, and bread. I also love making Carribbean style spanish dishes like Pernil (pork shoulder), rice w/ habichuelas (PR style beans), Corn Beef Guisada (corn beef in stew-like sauce), and tostones. My favorite quick and easy meals are cheesy chicken, cheesy vegetable cassarole, thai chicken with dates, and quesidillas! Oh and how can I forget...I love to make Sushi!!!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
When I was younger, we cooked very Puerto Rican/ Nicaraguense meals. From a little girl I would always follow my parents around as they cooked asking to help and asking what they were cooking. I can't remember when I first cooked, but I am pretty sure I started with bread and moved on up. My mom says I am like my dad in the sense I open up the pantry and fridge take out a various ingredients and start cooking whats there.
My cooking triumphs
My Maryland crab dip, my Puerto Rican slow roast pork shoulder, Graham Masala crusted salmon, sauteed brussel sprouts with butternut squash and pecans. The more I have fun with cooking the better it is!
My cooking tragedies
Oh there have been many...mypeople always seemed to enjoy them, but as the cook who envisioned them you just don't seem to enjoy them.
