About this Cook
I grew up in a spanish household and I'm told that, even at a very early age, I used to follow my mom around the kitchen trying to emulate everything she did.
My favorite things to cook
Desserts are my absolute favorite thing to make. Enjoy a good italian or spanish ish also.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Being puertorican, it's definately got to be Spanish rice and pernil.
My cooking triumphs
a few years back I decided that I wanted to try my hand at baking a homemade apple pie... from scratch. Afer a few of failed attempts, I finally got it perfected... or so my family tells me. It's become a family favorite.
My cooking tragedies
I've tried several times, but as of this moment, just can't seem to get the spaghetti sauce right.

Cream Cheese Frosting II
Real cream cheese taste. Great if you prefer icing that's not overly sweet. My husband never eats the frosting on cupcakes, he doesn't ahve the sweet tooth I do. But he loved this one. My only complaint was that it was too runny.

Sarah's Applesauce
Fantastic recipe. I found this while looking for something to make in order to use up some of the 10lbs of apples my children picked a couple of months ago. My children absolutely loved it! Since then my children refuse to eat store bought applesauce. They will only have this one.

Hot Toddy
I made this with tea instead of just hot water, I'm not a fan of watered down whisky. Didn't have lemons so I used lemon tea instead. It was delicious. My throat feels great and I'm nice and toasty warm. I would definitely make this again
