About this Cook
I heard of this website from a fellow teacher back in 2004 when I was looking for a recipe for the pumpkin we just picked with our students. The result was the most amazing pumpkin pie i had ever eaten. I turn to this website for all my meals and I sign on every day, even if it's just to browse the daily recipes.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook Latin food, especially from the Dominican Republic, where my family is from. My second favorite would have to be a tie between italian and southern cooking (love Paula Deen and Giada DeLaurentiis)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom and the women in my family are AMAZING cooks, I would love to be able to whip things up like they do without recipes. Practice makes perfect right?
My cooking triumphs
I noticed it takes about 3 tries before I get a recipe right, so I try not to get frustrated and just make changes until it is right for me and my family.
My cooking tragedies
I have not made a great Shepherd's pie yet, I tried a few recipes but nothing yet. I'm planning on trying out the Alton Brown recipe next

Brown Sugar Meatloaf
THIS IS THE BEST MEATLOAF- I found this recipe 2 years ago and it is the only one i use. You can switch the ingredients based on what you have. I took other reviewers suggestions and add garlic, no ginger, 1/2 c milk, 1 egg and 1 tbsp of worchestshire added to the 1/2c ketchup and 1/4 c brown sugar glaze that I add at the end. Is great with ground turkey as well

Shepherd's Pie VI
The Mashed potatoes are amazing! I did not like how the ketchup tastes in the meat, I think I will stick to a little flour and broth or I will try another reviewer's tip of adding gravy mix
