Loves Christ, my family & GREAT food. Love to be in the kitchen with stilettos. Fusses @ hubby if he tries to help but loves his company.
My favorite things to cook
Depends on my mood. Loves garlic and lemons.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Anytime we get together is a feast & party!
My cooking triumphs
Making homemade empanadas, like a real Puerto Rican (altho' I'm not.)
My cooking tragedies
Anything Asian, especially Chinese, which I love but can never blend the flavors exactly how I get them in the restaurants.

Tomato Soup
Recipe is a good starter. As is, is bland. I seasoned to taste as follows: added onion & garlic powder; fresh lemon juice & zest (whole lemon), 1/4C red & white wine; sauteed other veggies-eggplant, red & green peppers, leeks & red pepper flakes. Also added appx 1/4C heavy cream, feta & cream cheese to taste because I love! After additions, soup's divine! I just threw all ingredients into pot quickly, bro't to a boil, simmered & processed. Next time I'll take time & roast tomatoes & other veggies 1st.
