My favorite things to cook
Caribbean food, particularly Jamaican and Trinidadian, and Asian cuisine, particularly Thai and Vietnamese. I would love to learn more about creative vegetarian (think Moosewood) and learn more about French cooking.
My cooking triumphs
When we were first married (17 years ago) I prepared Cuban Rice and Beans for my husband, at his request. I really didn't want to; my father-in-law was Cuban, and my husband knew what good rice and beans were! I closely followed a recipe in a Caribbean cookbook and the results were astounding. My new husband said, "These are even better than my dad's!" I haven't dared to prepared Rice & Beans since!!
