About this Cook
I was formerly in the Air Force and settled into an electronic publishing job in NY
My favorite things to cook
Spanish and Italian
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pasteles. If you've got 7 hours then I can show you how to make these suckers. And Rellenos de papa. THose are just a treat.
My cooking triumphs
The first time I made a chicken in a white wine and cream sauce. I fed it to my brother, a picky eater. He wandered back to the kitchen with plate in hand just pointing, eating and making yummy sounds.
My cooking tragedies
Rice, too much water, holiday gathering. You try telling a room full of hungry Puerto Ricans that they'll have to wait while I make another batch of arroz con gandules.

Awesome Pasta Salad
This was good, but as written it needs some flavor work. So three stars. The base recipe is good though. It just needs some zest, pep, SOMETHING to liven the flavor up. Hold down the cost of this salad by asking your deli person if they have a meat ends price (for whatever butt ends they have left over that they're either throwing out or using to make antipasto). I got half/pounds of salami, ham, turkey, and muenster at the meat ends price and it made the costing on this much better than if I'd paid the regular price.

Pizza Dough III
This is the recipe! I went for 400 degrees and cook it about 26 minutes. Pizza crust was cooked through, crisp, and evenly brown on the bottom. Add some Italian seasonings for extra kick.

Tzatziki Sauce
Absolutely delicious. Salted and drained the cucumbers and used nonfat Greek yogurt.
