College grad and happily married with two pets, a dog and a cat. I love, love, love to cook, especially ethnic foods. I love to try new recipes and learn new ways to do things!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook or bake anything that pleases my husband. When he is happy, I am happy! So, I am willing to make him things that I have never eaten!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Portuguese sweet bread during easter is a beloved tradition.
My cooking triumphs
Mastering my mothers Portuguese Chicken & Potatoes in red sauce! Its so fantastic and mine is exactly like hers! My husband says the same thing! It is truly fan-freakin tastic! Now, I will have to learn and master her Meat and Potatoes! That is the best meat and potatoes ever!
My cooking tragedies
Years, years, years ago I overcooked steak and I had been afraid to cook it again. The steak was like leather, and way overcooked and just gross, and unedible, but my husband (boyfriend at the time) ate it up and complained the whole time! lol
