About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Baking is my forte.
My favorite family cooking traditions
As a child, I enjoyed the kitchens of my aunts and grandmother. We moved away from Portugal when I was nine but I still have vivid memories of the wood oven in my grandmother's house where all the bread was baked. My mom and all my aunts would bring dishes to my grandmother's house where we all gathered for celebrations. My grandmother had nine children, so celebrations were frequent! There were birthdays, weddings, baptisms, first communions, confirmations, and of course Easter and Christmas. My mom always brought a beautiful cake, and I think I've inherited that baking gene.

Pralines, Coffee and Cream Cake
This cake is a hit every time I make it. The "cream" concoction makes the cake very moist and rich. I sometimes substitute the cool whip with whipped cream and that works well too.

Beat and Bake Orange Cake
I used lemon instead of orange, and the cake turned out very well. I made this for a friend who loves lemon desserts and she loved it! Even I liked it, and I usually stick to chocolate.

Truly Coconutty Cream Pie
I made this pie for a potluck dinner. Even though I did not make the crust (used a pre-made frozen one), the result was a fluffy, coconutty, decadent pie. Loved it! Using a frozen crust made the whole process and clean up a lot easier and faster.
