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
