I was born in San Salvador, El Salvador...a tiny, beautiful, sometimes forgotten country in Central America. I recently married my best friend :-) I have always loved cooking, especially baking! I love trying new recipes and learning new techniques!
My favorite things to cook
DESSERTS!! Hahaha...I have a huge sweet tooth and could live off desserts ;-) I also love cooking savory dishes and I couldn't live with out my crock pot!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom makes the BEST pupusas (Salvadoran traditional meal). I'm slowly learning how to make them :-)
My cooking triumphs
I think my biggest cooking triumph is making home-cooked meals pretty much every day. I pride myself in this because now-a-days it's easier to just get take out or go out for dinner. My husband and I are a fairly, young couple that could easily eat take out every night or fast-food, but that's no fun (well only once in a while). I love cooking too much to give it up that easily.
My cooking tragedies
I currently have an electric stove (which I really dislike), so there's been many trial and errors with dinner :-(
