I am an absolute foodie. I love going out to eat and trying new places, but most of all I love to make food at home for my fiance and I. We just bought a house with a huge kitchen and have definitely been putting it to use. We cook a lot together and are constantly searching for new things to make or new methods to make old recipes better.
My favorite things to cook
I love comfort foods but I also love leafy greens and vegetables so I try to make a balance of both. Pot Roast, potatoes, stir fry, pork tenderloin, tacos, lasagna, salads, steak, chicken and more. I am in love with my crock pot and am always on the hunt for great new recipes for a great meal at the end of a busy day. I also love to bake cheesecakes, chocolate chip peanut butter cookies, brownies, and pies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother is Costa Rican so I grew up on a lot of Gallo Pinto, Patacones, and Platanos Maduros. I love Mexican/Costa Rican food however I don't like things super spicy. Anything with Cilantro, tomatoes, guacamole and beans I will eat. My dad makes everything with onions and herbs so I love adding those to recipes as well. I am not a picky eater and am willing to try anything once.
My cooking tragedies
I can't cook rice for the life of me. Have tried it dozens of times and it never turns out right. Breakfast is also a hit or miss thing with me as well. Pancakes, scrambled eggs, and hash browns...as easy as they are to make, I don't know why I am so terrible at making them. I could use some major help in that area.
