My favorite things to cook
I love Strogenauff, Albondigas, Empenadas, Lasagne, Beef Stew, and Stuffed Peppers. I also love quick and easy recipes that are hard to mess up!

My cooking triumphs
First: Getting my mom to let me alter her Beef Strogenauff recipe by adding garlic and fresh mushrooms. She was very skeptical but once she tried it, she loved it! Second: Making home-made flan and getting it right the first time. Third: Creating a S'More Pie which won a dessert contest at church.
My cooking tragedies
Numerous. I haven't completely grasped the science and art of cooking yet. I have to follow the recipe to the letter most of the time and make small changes instead of trying to be creative.
