I am from Nicaragua, living in Toronto,Canada since Nov 1988, married with 4 sons, my love for cooking begun when I had to prepare breakfas for 4 hungry boys so I started reading recipes and soon I was in charge of the cooking on weekends.
While my wife is more like traditional home cooking I try to do fancy stuff more kind of recipe guy.
My favorite things to cook
I specially enjoy summers bbq and Christmas dinner wich I prepare complete that include the salad, the turkey and another side dish.
When I am cooking I need my music, my drink if is the time (like in summer beer and bbqing)
My favorite family cooking traditions
The turkey in thanksgiven or Christmas. I love when the house is inundated with the aroma of the bird when is in the oven.
My cooking triumphs
One year I decide to cook a whole pork leg instead of turkey for christmas. I was so nervous since I never cookek a whole leg but thank God everything went ok an now is requested when we have a big gathering at home with friend and family.
