About this Cook
I'm a doting mom of a wonderful girl who's on her way to discovering just what the teenage world has to offer. I love, love, love cooking and creating recipes as well as sharing those recipes with my family and friends. Puerto Rico is where my family hails from, a land rich with colorful and absolutely wonderful food creations!
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook are foods from the island: Rice with Pink Beans and Fried Yellow Plaintains, Oxtail Stew and White Rice among other wonderful recipes from my wonderful Puerto Rico
My favorite family cooking traditions
Friday Family Night is a wonderful tradition. We enjoy whatever my daughter wishes to eat, which is usually her favorite Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo! Yum!!
My cooking triumphs
Finally perfecting my honey barbecue sauce recipe and that awesome Butter Pound Cake.
My cooking tragedies
Geez, I've had several cooking tragedies, I guess that's what becoming an awesome cook is all about, right? Well I can remember attempting to prepare my family's recipe of Oxtail Stew and it was so horrible, I didn't add enough flavoring and too much tomato sauce and it was just a saucy mess, needless to say, you live and you learn and you COOK ON!!!

Real Italian Calzones
I agree with "mrsdi's" review about the cheddar cheese. I've never ever seen a calzone made in this fashion. I omitted the cheddar and added just the ricotta with the parsley, salt and pepper with sausage and it was truly awesome after the omission.

Chicken Meatballs and Spaghetti
My daughter and I really enjoyed this recipe. I did take the suggestion of one user and used San Marzano Tomato Sauce and it really was delicious! This will definitely go in my family dinner file and be used quite often!

Pizza Dough II
I made a pepperoni pizza using this dough and it was THE most delicious recipe I've made yet. I did follow the instructions of one member and used a pizza stone and peel to make the crust come out perfectly and I also added herbs to the dough in the mix-ins cycle of my bread machine, PERFECTION!!! This one's a true keeper!
