About this Cook
I learned how to cook from my father when I was little. I cooked for a family of 6 by the time I was 10 years old. And except for dirty dishes, I love cooking. Most of my meals are "delicious and nutritious". My kids will vouch. They even love vegetables without disguising them.
My favorite family cooking traditions
arroz con gandules, pernil, tostones, pastelon
My cooking triumphs
My best friend says: I can make a great meal even out of chicken poop, because I invent meals from what I have available and they almost always come out great.
My cooking tragedies
homemade buscuits (hard as a rock), homemade pie crusts that fall apart.

Zucchini Corn Fritters
The most delicious part of the meal. I did not have cumin and it didn't need it. This recipe is perfect. Beware!! You can't eat just one or even two. I use very little oil to fry these. Crispy outside, light and perfectly sweetened inside. Not greasy and makes a huge batch that an be used later on.

Southern Peach Cobbler
This was excellent. I changed it just a bit. Instead of 1 cup white sugar, I put 3/4 and I used fresh home grown peaches with a squirt of lemon. I mixed the peaches with the batter in the baking dish, then topped with brown sugar which made it crunchy on top. To die for! OH YEA, I added cinnamon and nutmeg to the flour. I did not have self rising flour so I put in a tsp of baking soda.

Empanadas (Beef Turnovers)
Now this is Empanada. Those fruity ones cannot compare to what Empanada is really supposed to be.
