About this Cook
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 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!

Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken
I followed recipe and then added 1 chopped onion, 2 cloves of garlic, 1 can of rinsed and drained black beans and 1 can of rinsed and drained corn. House smelled awesome! After cooking for 4 hours, I served in flour tortillas with shredded Mexican cheese, sour cream and more cilantro. You've gotta try this recipe. Mmmm...

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers
My whole family devoured these, even my picky teenager. I altered it a bit to make more. I used 2 cans of black beans, 2 eggs, 1 cup of breadcrumbs and half a can of corn. I had no trouble shaping the patties. I then refrigerated them for a couple of hours. I proceeded to bake them as directed but also "fried" them in a pan using pam spray before serving to crisp them up. Inexpensive, simple and delicious! Made 10 patties.

Easy Cream Cheese Danish
I made 8 of these with a thawed box of puff pastry (Pepperidge Farm). I made pockets by folding in corners of puff pastry after placing filling in the centers. The filling was delicious and I have enough filling left over for another batch. Easy and tasty!
