I'm a single parent of two healthy young men 23 & 16yrs of age. My sons have always been hearty eaters so c.f.ooking some frozen meal out of a box just was not an option at all. I like to make a simple recipe and make it a " WoW" , meal ! just by adding a little more to it or changing the protein etc. I have many cookbooks that I read but never go by ingredient for ingredient and that's how I make dishes my own ! :-)
My favorite things to cook
I'm Puerto Rican , so I love to cook latin dishes the most along with Italian food . I am now going deep into cooking Indian and Creole food , I love the various spices that have to be used in that type of food . I love spicey food it gets me right in the palette all the time .
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love Christmas time ! that's when all the food traditions come out like : pasteles , pastellios, arroz con gandules , arroz con pollo and various deserts .
My cooking triumphs
My triumphs as far as cooking hasn't been one thing it's been how my cooking expertise has evolved through the years .
My cooking tragedies
Well , I've learned their certsin dishes that you have to physically babysit snd that's grilling ( don't walk away) , frying , sauteing , when your making rice definitely dont walk away or you'll have burnt rice and when your baking that has to be done by the book .
