About this Cook
Hi! My name is Megan Elise Llenas I am 22 and have been cooking since i was 19. I love cooking among other things such as reading working out and listening to music and spending time with my family. My husband (Josue Llenas) is Honduran and Dominican so I like to cook alot of Spanish food. My son Anthony Josue Llenas is not old enough to eat solids yet but i can't wait to cook for him.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook new things ..however cooking can become an expensive hobby fast. Soooo I opt to cooking alot of fast and easy meals that my family and his love! I like a challenge so I look up restaurant dishes and try to recreate them so we can eat in and not worry about leaving a tip.. :0)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is from the South so alot of the cooking traditions are comfort cooking. Such as fried chicken and porkchops. Big Thanksgiving dinners and Christmas dinners....Santa never left our house hungry :0)...I love my moms Christmas cookies and also her baked macaroni and cheese..
My cooking tragedies
Chicken Marsala from the box....Macaroni Grill brand...that didn't turn out so great...but the trashcan loved it!

Ropa Vieja (Cuban Meat Stew)
I was intimidated @ first with making this dish because my husbands mother is Honduran and makes it...So I felt under pressure to make it taste as good..My husband tasted it and said it was better than his mother's! I loved it. I left out the capers as well and used skirt steak...I also saw to late that the recipe called for minced garlic so i substituted 2 teaspoons garlic powder.
