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.
