I'm 29 and have a degree in Arts, I've been drawing/painting since i was a child. Besides, I do love cooking, well... i also love eating!!! At home, i'm the person in charge of cooking (actually i took over the kitchen!!), so i'm constantly providing my loved one's with healthy and hearty meals to satisfy their appetite. When it comes to desserts.... i'm a master baker!!
I love trying new recipes, whenever i find something that looks yummy i MUST give it a try. I recently learned that I suffer from celiac disease so I'm on a gluten-free diet. I had a terrible cry at the beginning, but somehow I found the strength to face my intolerance and and look on the bright side of the situation. A month ago I opened a cooking blog were most of my recipes can be cooked with both gluten-free or regular wheat flour. So If you'd like to come by and say hi you're very welcomed!!!
And recently I got engaged to my best friend, my support and my love :)

My favorite things to cook
Seafood, rice, vegetables, cakes,... everything!! I also love chicken but nobody at home likes it except for me.... go figure!!! :(
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love baking "roscón", a traditional type of ring-shaped cake, baked for Easter here in Spain. Actually in my family since I was a child, women get together to make this dessert. That's the best way to keep us all together and make kids love cooking!!
In Christmas time, we eat tons of shellfish and "turrón", and every New Year's day we have churros and hot chocolate for breakfast.
My cooking triumphs
Thanx to my mom, I make the best empanadas ever!!!!....of course, after hers!. I'm also proud of my "petits choux" (filled with tons of pastry cream), always get rave reviews!!
My cooking tragedies
hmmm...... probably the first time i cooked pasta... please, give me a break, i was 10 or so!!!!!!!!
