My favorite things to cook
I love to cook new recipes! However, it is rare that I follow the recipe as written. I love to make modifications. I also enjoy exotic foods and trying to re-create the recipes in my home.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I would have to say—Christmas. Having a ham, mashed potatoes and ham gravy, can’t beat it!
My cooking triumphs
Since I experiment often in the kitchen, most things come out pretty well. I have a pretty good sense of what tastes good and in what proportions, so I usually am pretty pleased with what I come up with.
My cooking tragedies
Well, I have submitted a recipe for Patacones—fried plantain patties. One day I left them in the oil too long and they burnt to a crisp; not even edible. That was pretty sad.
