About this Cook
I'm a mother of two kids who is very family oriented. Work hard all week and the weekend is all about family and cooking.
My favorite things to cook
My mother is from Puerto Rico and my Father is Colombian. I love to cook carribean cuisine because it has so much flavor. Being Latina and being proud of my culture makes me want to try anything. Every culture bursts with flavor!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving and Mother's Day. We cook just about everything and is a great feeling when the best cooks in the family get together and bring in their famous recipes.
My cooking triumphs
When my family and friends keep asking me for my recipes and won't stop talking about it.
My cooking tragedies
I tried to make fudge and it came soggy and sticky.

Parmesan Roasted Corn on the Cob
I spray butter on the aluminum foil so the cheese will stick on the cobb and put it in my oven. This is my family's favorite.

Crab and Pea Salad
I made one today and my Mother and I decided to make one for Thanksgiving. The only difference I brought a can of sweet peas and added a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, chopped minced white onions, and chopped 1/4 of fresh cilantro. My family loved it.

Easy Meatloaf
I used this recipe and added 2 tablespoons of sofrito for latin carribean flavor, with carrots and sweet peas and my family loved it. Will use this recipe again for Thanksgiving.
