I am a married mother of 2 teenage boys (1 very picky). I live in sunny Florida so I enjoy the few weeks of cooler months we get to make my favorite soups!
My favorite things to cook
I love making comfort foods, soups and desert.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I enjoy making my mom's Cuban recipes. Now that I am older I regret not spending more time in the kitchen with her learning how to make all of the yummy Cuban food I ate as a child. Thank goodness some of my sisters passed down her recipes to me. I enjoy making these meals for my husband and sons.
My cooking triumphs
I went from being a true novice in the kitchen to now cooking pretty darn good. i've lost my fear of cooking and know I can cook my family great tasting meals.
My cooking tragedies
i learned the hard way not to skip steps to save time. When the recipe tells you to mix dry ingredients separate from other ingredients...do it! I was attempting to make a banana bread once and didn't adhere to this rule. It came out terrible and had to go straight into the trash. Waste of time and money!
