I grew up in a family that was defined by food. My mom is a fantastic cook and we still have all family events surrounded by cooking and enjoying great foods. Over the years I have learned to to appreciate the exploration of cooking new things and sharing of food recipes and techniques. I grew up in Belize, Central America so I love latin food.
My favorite things to cook
Love all types of food. My favorite dishes to cook would be a traditional Belizean dish which is coconut rice, stew chicken with recardo seasoning, plantins. I also love to cook roast pork leg.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom makes a mean lemon merenge pie. Our biggest family tradition is that my mom spends several days in December making fruit cakes. this is a tradition for us. as a child I would help prepare all the fruit for the cakes. we make a traditional white fruit cake and a black fruit cake with lots of rum. trust me they taste nothing like the yucky fruit cakes everyone hates.
My cooking triumphs
my biggest cooking triumph was mastering how to cook the traditional Belizean dish of rice and chicken.
My cooking tragedies
in my college years when I lived alone...I cooked half chicken and refroze the chicken I did not use. needless to say when I cooked the chicken I had refrozen...I got really really sick. but I learned a lesson...
