About this Cook
My background is hispanic but I also love Indian and Thai (I think it is the cilantro). My husband was a picky eater but now will try almost anything. Most of my scores come from a combination of his and my ratings. I enjoy cooking butit needs to be fast enough my husband doe not get grumpy waiting for his food to be ready.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
Tamaladas- Friends and family get together to cook and talk. It is the perfect combination of food and fellowship
My cooking triumphs
I finally learned to cook Indian food!!!
My cooking tragedies
Teaspoons and tablespoons should not be confused. Especialy when you are trying to add 2 tsp salt to biscuits. The biscuits are beautiful but they are not ediable!

Jollof Rice
Good. I thought the spices would be weak but there was pleanty of spice. It was good but not wow- it does make a lot of food- use a big pot.

Jackie's Sausage Soup
Good soup, but it lacked that something to make it awesome. However it could have been my sausage- it was rather bland. In the future I might add paprika/ tobasco/salsa/ or use a spicy sausage for more flavor. Overall- a good way to use sausage.

Shortbread Cookies II
As a shortbread cookie these are great. But I do not think shortbread cookies have much flavor so I used them as a base cookie--I made thumb print cookies - apricot and strawberry jelly (store brand jelly)- and they were great. These cookies also make good cut out cookies- I used a rectangle cutter with a frill edge- and then made them into frosting sandwiches. I agree with a previous writer to sprinkle sugar on them. Good base- great shortbread but I like more flavor. 5 stars for great shortbread and a great base
