About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
i love to make puerto rican and peruvian (due to my husband) cuisine! my friend is getting me into baking and desserts. i'm puerto rican, but oddly, i am a better peruvian cook. weird.... also, i love to grill!!!!! nothing better than a nice bbq!
My favorite family cooking traditions
christmas time meals! pernil, arroz con gandules, coquito, arroz con dulce and flan. YUM!
My cooking triumphs
mastering peruvian food. my mother in law was the talk of the town in peruvian food. EVERYONE loved her cooking. she taught me how to cook her food and i gave my husband's family a taste test and they loved it!!!!! they said it was just as good (and maybe even better) as my mother in law's!! all i did was make her recipe, but added some puerto rican flare!!
My cooking tragedies
i made some fried chicken strips and breaded them with instant mashed potatoes mix. i forgot to taste the mix and added salt blindly. now, the chicken had a perfect crunch due to the instant mashed potatoes mix, but they were way too salty. ugh! now i know not to add salt to the mix, but that chicken had THE perfect crunch.

Brandy Almond Cake
Bland and way too dense. Even with simple syrup it's still missing something.

Red Salad
Hi ladies! Thank you for the positive feedback and suggestions! The only reason why I don't chop or peel before hand is because I found the peels retain more of the vegetables flavor. I've done it both ways and just prefer doing it the longer way. I do add salt and a lil more mayo than posted on here. Also a lil salt goes a long way here!! Sorry for forgetting that one important ingredient!!
