I was born in PR and my love for food and cooking quickly developed when I was a young girl. My mom is a great cook, so are my aunts. I have been cooking since I was 11 and being a regular in the kitchen helping and observing long before that.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook my Puertorican dishes the best. Oh, the flavor and memories of our food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Arroz con gandules (rice with pigeon peas), Pernil (Pork Shoulder), Pollo Guisao' (Chicken Stew), some mean tostones (fried green plantains)
My cooking triumphs
Most of what I cook is a triumph to my family. They love my food and now my husband is cooking with me. We enjoy looking for recipes together, shopping for ingredients and prepping. Sitting down at the table together for dinner is a triumph
My cooking tragedies
Don't remember one now...but yes, I've had my tragedies, lol
