Roasted Beet Salad with Goat Cheese
About this Cook
I have a huge collection of spices and seasonings, and use garlic liberally. My Puerto Rican culture is often reflected in my cooking escapades.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy making nutritious meals with simple ingredients. I love flavorful and well-seasoned foods and like to experiment with ethnic dishes from different cultures. One pot meals like stews, soups, casseroles are currently a favorite.
My cooking triumphs
I once made a seafood cioppino that was "to die for" after watching Julia Childs make her own fish stock. I know it's silly, but I've never made it again because I'm afraid I won't live up to my first outrageous success.
My cooking tragedies
One Thanksgiving I made my usual standard pumpkin pie and forgot to add the sugar. What a disaster!

Tangy Cucumber and Avocado Salad
I wanted to make just enough for two, so I used 1/3 large cucumber and 2 small avocados. I tried to have an equal ratio of avocado and cucumber. This is a refreshing tangy summer salad and a nice departure from lettuce or other greens. I didn't have green onions, so I used a small amount of chopped red onion, 1/2 lime and 1/2 small lemon. Amount of citrus can be adjusted to taste. Awesome salad!

Cheesy Baked Cauliflower
This was a wonderful way to prepare cauliflower. I used what I had on hand... a sweet hot mustard and adjusted the amounts of mayo and mustard. I also used a packaged blend of parmesian, romano, asiago cheese. Steamed cauliflower 10 min. and baked 15 minutes... Delicious!

The Best Bean and Ham Soup
The highest star rating is well deserved for this recipe. You may want to call this anti-depression soup! It's very low budget and sooooo good and hearty. I was true to the recipe, but tweaked it a little to use additional ingredients I had on hand, such as 1/2 jalapeno (diced & seeds removed) and 6 parsnips. You can pretty much add any root vegetable. Also, be sure to use a very large pot. I used a two-gallon pot and had to temporarily transfer stock out of the pot until it cooked down. This is definitely a keeper. Bon appetit!
