About this Cook
I love to cook. I love the food network,and I love to try new recipes.
My favorite things to cook
I am currently obsessed with my slow cooker. I do however make some great fajitas, and some authentic Puerto Rican dishes. I also love to bake and spend alot of time during the holidays baking goodies for friends and family.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother is still the best cook I know. I love watching her throw things into a pot without a single measurement. Her food goes straight to the heart and stomach.
My cooking triumphs
Learning to make and can my own preserved jellies. I made them last year for the holidays and I am already getting requests for this year. Also, learning and perfecting an apple pie from scratch recipe, with just the right combination of apples and spices.
My cooking tragedies
Potato salad. I tried to make my moms potato salad, but like so many others in my family there are no exact measurments. I failed miserably. I continue to just buy my potato salad from publix instead.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup
Wonderful and flavorful! Made this for a work potluck and everyone raved about it!!! Will make this again and again! Edited: I have made this the traditional way as well as a more milder version to be more kid friendly. For a milder taste I used 1 can diced and 1 can tomatoes with chilies, 1 can chicken broth instead of beer. Both taste amazing! I also have taken leftovers and drained the excess liquid and cooked enchilada style with flour tortillas in the oven for 30 min. with some of the drained liquid and cheese baked on top. It is fabulous! This recipe is so versitile and EASY!

Eggplant Parmesan II
This was wonderful! I let the eggplant sweat for about 30 minutes as others suggested. I brushed olive oil on each breaded slice before baking at 450 for about 8 minutes each side. I then continued as the recipe said. It was perfectly tender on the inside with crisp coating. Served this with a side of buttered pasta and a simple salad. It was not greasy as other eggplant recipes I have made in the past. No need to look at other recipes, this is the ONE!

Double Quick Dinner Rolls
AMAZING!!! Followed everything exactly but left out the onion powder. I saw many reviewers proofed the yeast first. I did not do this and it still came out perfect. The dough is sticky but just put a little flour on your hands when handling. I have made many bread recipes and this one really was QUICK and simple! Next time I make italian food I will try it with garlic powder and maybe some cheese on top. Perfect simple roll!
