I'm from The Bronx, NYC. My mom taught me how to cook. My passion for cooking grew from that point.
My favorite things to cook
Puerto Rican/Cuban dishes, but dishes that does not have walnuts or mushroom is what I am willing to learn. I love making ropa vieja and salmon dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
For Christmas, pastelles, arroz con grandules y pernil are the staple of my family's dishes.
My cooking triumphs
My first Thanksgiving dinner, it was a smashing hit.
My cooking tragedies
Key Lime Pie, talk about YUCK, it looked like vomit and I didn't even taste it.
