I am half Puerto Rican and half East Indian, married to an All American blonde haired blue-eyed boy :) meaning the food around here is pretty international! My husband and I both grew up in TX, so that also is a large influence on what we like to make.
With 3 kids, cooking is an adventure :) we like to try new things, and I try to make things that are simple but still flavorful. We like flavor a lot. Most things I make require minimum steps with maximum results, but then again, there are times when it's ok if things are little more involved. Just because there's a few more steps doesn't necessarily mean it's difficult.
So, that's about it. I like food. I love my family. And being hispanic, food is the way we show love for one another. From My Table to Yours :)
My favorite things to cook
I really like to bake, especially things with chocolate!
My cooking tragedies
When I was 20 and pregnant with my second child, we lived in a small apartment with no dishwasher. We were having company for dinner, so I decided I'd make my pork roast in a disposable pan instead of a regular roasting pan to cut down on dishes.
While stabbing at my roast, I poked a few holes in the bottom of my pan. "I know," I thought, "I'll just like the bottom with foil and it'll be fine!" So that's what I did.
Yeah, that didn't work. Grease from the roast leaked all along the bottom of my oven. Worst part is that I forgot to clean it up after so the next time I baked something there was a huge inferno! LoL it really was funny once I put the fire out :P
