Semana rara para comenzar 
Jun. 2, 2010 8:30 am 
De todas las semanas, escogi una en la cual he cocinado y cocinare muy poco. Mi esposo esta en otro estado visitando a su mama y mi hijo (Dan) es muy mañoso y solo quiere comer macarones con queso o ravioli (Si, los de chef boyardee).

El lunes (Memorial Day) hice costillitas al horno que tenia en la nevera marinando con un "rub" que trate aqui y me gusto mucho (si quieres saber cual fue, voy y lo busco). Ayer martes, comimos pizza de Papa John's y hoy comeremos tortellini (de esos que vienen en una bolsa ya listos).


Les aseguro que es solo por esta semana. Usualmente comemos MUY poco en restaurantes. Tampoco uso comidas que vienen preparadas o congeladas. No pareciera...con mi menu esta semana...pero es cierto.

Oh!! Hoy voy a hacer mis galletas de avena favoritas!! He tratado muchisimas recetas pero mi favorita (y la de mis amigos que las han probado) es Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Cookies. Usualmente solo hago la mitad de la receta (salen bastantes) y uso manteca vegetal regular en vez de la que viene con sabor a mantequilla. Me encanta usar "parchment paper" cuando horneo galletas y otros "pastries". Quedan perfectas!

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!!
