About this Cook
Family is from Madeira Island. Having cooked Portuguese foods for so long, which I love, I seek new recipes to keep me inspired in the kitchen. I have 3 children, ages 11-27. From desserts for my little one, fruits & veggies for others, and then the manly dinners for the older ones. I search to renew everyday recipes to serve at the family dinner each night.
My favorite things to cook
Foods that require marinades, garlic, wine, chourico, linguica, fish, and shellfish. During the summer months, my family harvest our clams, and dig for quahogs for a nice clamboil and stuffies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Portuguese cooking is a tradition in our family. All Portuguese recipes are handed down to each generation.
My cooking triumphs
Fava Beans, Caciola, Bacalhau, Codfish Cakes, Stuffed Quahogs, Clam Chowder, Pork Roast, Rabbit, Venison and my Chili.
My cooking tragedies
baking breads in the bread machine.

Simple Spinach Lasagna
Excellent recipe! I chose mozzarella cheese and omitted the cottage cheese. I also added 1lb. of chopped Portuguese chourico meat...(not Spanish chourizo)...Delicious! Definitely a hit with family and friends.

Easy Whole Wheat Bread
This bread was wonderful! As soon as it was cool enough to cut, my family was eating it with honey as a snack...Now, I'll just have to make another loaf! Thanks so much for this easy recipe we just love it! ps/I left out the egg

Portuguese Sweet Bread II
This was a nice bread with a nice flavor, but, it is not the Portuguese Sweet Bread I was raised with. Good recipe though.
