Humitas Chilenas
About this Cook
I was born in Chile to chilean/german parents, but grew up mostly in Germany. So I learned to make dishes out of both counties. I have lived in the USA for over 10 years and beeing a former military wife I have learned new recipes from friends all over the world.
My favorite things to cook
Foods I remember form Chile as a child. Chilenitos con merengue,Humitas,Pastel de choclo,sopaipillas,.... I love to bake.One of my hobbies is to decorate cakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I make Stollen every Christmas and give some away to friends. My favorite birthday cake is Schwarzwaelder Kirsch Torte (Blackforest Cake) I make it every year for my birthday.
My cooking triumphs
as a teenager I had very picky younger sisters, I made broccoli with sauce holandaise and had my sisters begging for me to make it again

Isa's Cola de Mono
I am from Chile and this recipe was very good, but I had to give it a 4 star because it needed more white rum than the recipe asked for.

Original Irish Cream
I liked it, but had to double up the recipe(that's why I gave it a 3 star only). The amount of whiskey was too much for my taste. The rating should be on the recipe the way it is written not on what you made out of it...

Easy Sugar Cookies
Very easy and very good. I did not change the recipe. Melted butter in microwave since I forgot to take it out of the refrigerator.... Recomend this to anyone! We had fun making snowmen by just making three different size dough balls.... The dough tasted good even before baking it,(not a recomendation)
