Hola a todos!

Me llamo Nelly, soy puertorriqueña pero he vivido en los Estados Unidos por muchos años. Sin embargo, no puedo negar el placer que me da leer y hablar en español especialmente con gente que entiende nuestra cultura hispanoamericana. Hasta ahora no he visto Blogs en Allrecipes en Español. Talvez los hay, pero no los he visto. No soy muy buena recordando los códigos que hay que usar para colocar acentos apropiadamente, asi que... perdonenme eso :o) Ademas, algunas veces escribire en "Spanglish" porque he olvidado algunas palabras aqui y alla. Mis disculpas anticipadas.

Bueno, como actualmente estoy desempleada, me paso inventando en la cocina o haciendo nuevas recetas de este site (u otros) y me entretiene mucho tomar fotos de mis creaciones.

Espero poder conocer mas cocineros y cocineras, chefs y entusiastas atravez de este medio.
♫♪Me voy, ya me voy, pero un dia volvere...♪♫
Hasta entonces...chupense los dedos!! :o)

pues mi nombre es Mayra. Yo me identifico contigo, no hay mejor placer que hablar con gente hispana que entienda a uno. Nos mudamos a NY hace unos meses pero somos 100% puertorros de la Isla. Mis nenes tambien lo que hablan es español y poco a poco van cogiendo el ingles de aqui y alla. Me da gusto leer este blog.

About Me
Hola!! I'm a 36 years old Nuclear Medicine Technologist, mom to the smartest and handsomest 16 year old boy (I love you Dan!) and wife to a retired military man. I was born and raised in Puerto Rico but the military brought me to Ft.Bragg, NC where I lived for 13 years. After my husband retired we moved to St. Louis, MO (in August 2009). I'm currently job hunting. I've met some great people in the area but I still miss my family in PR and my friends in NC. Planning meals, cooking and baking take a big chunk of my day and make it more bearable.
My favorite things to cook
A challenge! That's my favorite thing to cook. Making my own versions of popular restaurant foods, making international dishes, making food look pretty and yummilicious... I just LOVE to cook! :o)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Being from Puerto Rico, it would be a sin not to mention Arroz con Gandules (Rice with Pigeon Peas), Pernil Asado (Roasted Pork), Tostones (Fried Plantains), and Pasteles (hmm...pasteles is kinda like a Puertorican tamale, made with green bananas or yuca root - or even a variation of roots). I do love Bistec Encebollado though and I think my mom makes the best in the world!! I did find a pretty good recipe for this dish at
My cooking triumphs
A triumph for me consists of my husband, or my son, or anyone to tell me that they loved my dish. I love feedback in the kitchen and most of the feedback I get is very good I must say :o)
My cooking tragedies
I just got a new stove when I moved to my new house and I just can't figure out the right setting to cook pancakes!! Hahaha. I always burn one or two before I can get it right and then I FORGET what temperature setting I used!!! I can't remember anything in particular that was a huge disaster but I do mess something up every now and then. Hey, it's life!! Life's boring without mess-ups!!
