Full time surgery RN, well traveled and loving the island lifestyle. I've loved to cook as long as I can remember. Working with young people and teaching them how to cook is a hobby. Cooking is my creative outlet and a great way of sharing with family and friends.
My favorite things to cook
Ahhh, so many. Seafood pasta, cheese cake, home made pasta and sauces with home grown herbs. I love making the traditional holiday meals, all with fresh ingredients, nothing canned or processed
My favorite family cooking traditions
All holidays and birthdays making the traditional and incorprating island flavors into my dishes.
My cooking triumphs
Justin's seafood pasta with lobster.
Black Strap laced banana bread from the Turks and Cacois
Cuban white bean and sausage soup
Quiche with crab
Grilled pork tenderloin with orange/sherry glaze
My cooking tragedies
Tarred candied yams (Ahhh)
Fresh cranberry sauce with hotpeppers
Seed muffins for the Mckaw (so dry he wounldn't eat them!)
