About this Cook
I was always known as the one who couldn't cook, mostly because I never cooked. But now everyone is always asking me to cook something for them.
My favorite things to cook
I like to experiment in the kitchen. But my all time favorite things to cook are Greek, Mexican & Soul Food
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up watching my grandmom cook. She is the best cook in the world to me. And one thing that we did together was make Christmas & graduation cookies together.
My cooking triumphs
My very first Thanksgiving. This was during the time that everyone thought I could not cook, well I fooled them all. I cooked a full course meal all by myself. My Aunt even thought that my grandmom actualy cooked some of the food I had. *update 12/30/08* My new triumph was making Chicken Marsala for the first time....I swear it was better than what I get a the restaurant.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I tried to fry chicken. It was all golden brown on the outside and raw on the inside! LOL. Another tragedy was the first time I made a sweet potato pie, I forgot to remove the wax paper from the pie crust. *12/28/08 Updtate* I tried to make my own alfredo sauce....It was beyond gross! It was like I had a bunch of milk with a playdough ball floating in it. LOL

Trinidad-Style Curried Potatoes (Aloo) with Green Beans and Shrimp
I love this dish. I have made this at least 5 times in the past 2 months. I recently made this for some friends and they now all keep asking me to make it again. You have to like Trini food to really appreciate this dish. as for blandness, I personally season food to my liking this way I don't end up with a bland meal. No one knows my taste buds like I do.
