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!
