I absolutely love to feed people! I like baking and then giving it away. I find cooking therapeutic and I enjoy cooking with my son, Nicholas and my daughter, Olivia.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook are Indian curries, Southern cooking, casseroles, and I love to bake cakes and cookies. I like to entertain so my family and friends are often guinea pigs for new recipes. Too bad for them when some of my greatest hits are never seen again...
My favorite family cooking traditions
Since my background is Hispanic, I look forward to making Costa Rican tamales for the holidays. Also, I married a rare Florida native (a true southern boy) so we have sausage balls Christmas morning.
My cooking triumphs
I've made some pretty complicated cakes and I make a mean lumpia.
My cooking tragedies
For the longest time I couldn't make a respectable meatloaf (I'm still not too good at it) and perfectly cooked rice was pretty elusive. However, I've practiced making rice for years and now I'm the go-to rice person in my family! Hooray! A happy ending...
