About this Cook
I love trying new things and the area of food has infinite possibilities. My family is always surprised by my creativity. I love cooking to make others happy and to introduce them to more than just hamburgers and fries.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking Italian, especially meat dishes with rich sauces. I have also been dabbling at Chinese and Japanese cuisine, although I think I'm a long way from being considered an expert.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom makes tamales every year for Christmas, and I like to make Paella for Easter. My mom has a standard recipe she has been using since I can remember, but my Paella varies from year to year.
My cooking triumphs
A lobster/clam bake for 20 people. It was so much fun! We ordered the seafood ahead of time and used some of the recipes from this site.

Polvorones de Canele (Cinnamon Cookies)
They make the whole house smell wonderful! These are the perfect cookie to eat with Mexican hot chocolate or Spanish dunking chocolate.

Italian Dressing Mix
This is a great recipe with enough mix left over for a second batch. Thank you!

Squirrel's Great Beef Steak
This is a great marinade. I only made one change and it was to add brown sugar only because the BBQ sauce I used was not sweet enough. Even my picky in-laws loved it! Thank you.
