About this Cook
I live in a small apartment with my husband Cory and our cats Roxy and Muffin. I enjoy cooking, baking, cleaning and organizing, making lists and playing Tetris and Dr. Mario.
My favorite things to cook
Any dish that involves chicken, I'll try. Potato soup is a recent favorite and I love the many variations of it. I also like baking cookies, brownies and other sweet treats.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Eating arroz con frijoles and picadillo at least once a week when I lived back in Miami with my mom and grandma (they're from Honduras).
My cooking triumphs
Making a really delicious vegan cake for a friend's birthday. I'd never done anything like it before since I'm not vegan at all. It was a big hit.
My cooking tragedies
I usually get really impatient after I've baked something so I'll try and take it out of the pan too early which only ends in a mess. I need to learn to let it sit and cool off before I try to dig in!

Smoked Salmon Alfredo Sauce
i added chopped asparagus and a handful of baby spinach to add some more color, flavor and nutrition. i'm not a big fan of salmon, but my fiancé LOVED it (he adores salmon)!
