About this Cook
BEING SINGLE AND HAVING NO REASON WHATSOEVER TO COOK DINNER, IT WAS EASY TO GO OUT AND BUY SOMETHING(WHICH WAS MY EXCUSE FOR BEING LAZY)COOKING TICKLED MY CURIOSITY BUT NEVER STRONG ENOUGH FOR ME TO MAKE THE EFFORT TO TRY JUST BECAUSE I WAS AFRAID OF "MESSING UP" BUT IT ALL CHANGED WHEN I MET THE MAN ON MY DREAMS(NIGHTMARES)JUST DON'T TELL HIM.. WELL I MADE THE BIGGEST DECISION OF MY LIFE AND MOVED IN WITH HIM AND HIS 13 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER, AND WELL I STARTED COOKING AND FORGOT THE FEAR OF "MESSING UP" OR THEM NOT LIKING MY FOOD, IT WAS EITHER COOKING OR EATING OUT AND WELL NEEDLES TO SAY IT GOT EXPENSIVE SO WE DID IT FOR A COUPLE OF WEEKS, AND THEN I DECIDED TO SURPRISE THEM WITH A HOME COOKED MEAL JUST FOR THE THREE OF US!!! AND WELL IT WAS NOT THAT BAD ACTUALLY IT WAS DELICIOUS!!! I AM NOT GONNA LIE TO YOU ALL WE STILL EAT OUT JUST NOT AS OFTEN AS WE DID!!!
My favorite things to cook
WELL THE THING I LIKE TO COOK IS THE FIRST MEAL I COOKED FOR THEM AND THAT IS BECAUSE THEY LOVED IT, A COUPLE OF WEEKENDS AFTER THE FIRST TIME I COOKED ADOLFO INVITED HIS PARENTS FOR DINNER AND HE ASKED ME TO COOK THE FAJITA JUST LIKE I DID THAT FIRST TIME SO I DID AND HIS PARENTS LOVED IT SO THAT WAS NICE PAT ON MY BACK! I RECENTLY TRIED BAKING AND THAT STARTED BY A CRAVING OF MY PREGNANT FRIEND THERE WAS A DESSERT(THAT DOES NOT INVOLVE MUCH BAKING) CALLED "BETTER THAN SEX" THAT A RESTAURANT USED TO SELL HERE, SHE WAS CRAVING IT SO WE DECIDED TO PLACE AN ORDER TO OUR BAD LUCK THE RESTAURANT HAD CLOSED AND WAS ONLY OFFERING CATERING SERVICES AND IF WE WANTED TO PLACE AN ORDER IT WOULD HAVE TO BE IN BIG QUANTITIES WHICH WAS NOT CONVENIENT FOR US SINCE IT WAS JUST TO CALM A CRAVING. SO I DID IT AND WELL IT WAS PRETTY GOOD, EVEN WITH THE MINOR EDITS TO THE RECIPE(I AM ALERGIC TO PECANS)THE CRAVING WAS SATISFIED AND WE ALL SHARED A DELICIOUS TREAT! NOW I FIND MYSELF LOOKIN FOR NEW RECIPIES
My favorite family cooking traditions
NEW YEARS EVE IS A VERY BIG THING WITH MY FAMILY SO EVERY YEAR WE ALL GET TOGETHER AT WHAT USED TO BE MY GRANDMA'S HOUSE TO HAVE A DELICIOUS MEAL WHERE EVERYONE CONTRIBUTES WITH A DISH, MY MOM MAKES A DELICIOUS PASTA(GREEN PASTA) I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO GET MY HANDS ON HER RECIPE BUT EVERYONE WAITS AROUND FOR MY MOM TO ARRIVE(OR MIGHT I SAY THE PASTA TO ARRIVE) THIS WOULD BE MY FIRST YEAR CONTRIBUTING ON THAT TRADITION SO I HAVE TO LOOK AND SEARCH I WANT TO MAKE SOMETHING GOOD, SOMETHING THAT WOULD BE A FIRST FOR MOST OF THEM, SO ALL SUGGESTIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED!!!
My cooking triumphs
WELL TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH MOST OF WHAT I HAVE BEEN FEEDING MY NEW FAMILY ARE TRIUMPHS FOR ME, I LIKE THAT THEY ENJOY EATING WHAT I COOK. AND WELL MOST OF WHAT I'VE BEEN COOKING ARE FIRSTS FOR ME
My cooking tragedies
HA HA HA YEAH I AM NOT GONNA SAY I AM PERFECT AND EVERYTHING I COOKS COMES OUT DELICIOUS BECAUSE I WOULD BE LYING I TRIED MAKING A DISH MY MOM COOKED OFTEN IT WAS SOME SORT OF STEAMED CHICKEN MARINATED IN MUSTARD I WAS CRAVING IT AND I THOUGHT HOW HARD COULD IT BE?! WELL LET ME TELL YOU IT PROVED TO BE HARDER THAT WHAT I THOUGHT, THE CHICKEN WAS HORRIBLE AND THE FUNNY THING IS I GAVE IT TO HIM TO EAT FIRST & HE ATE THE WHOLE THING (WHILE LYING TO ME & TELLING ME HOW DELICIOUS IT WAS) BUT THEN I TASTED THE HORRIBLE DISH AND I FELT BAD POOR THING THIS ONLY ASSURED ME HOW MUCH HE LOVES ME!! I COULD NOT EAT IT!!!
