As I've mentioned a few times on this blog already, I have definitely become way more adventurous in recent years with food. When it came to seafood I only really ate a few different types of fish, and that was it. The thought of any raw seafood preparation, such as tartare, sashimi, sushi,… MORE

I first tried enfrijoladas one summer when I was 11 or 12 and my parents sent me to a summer camp here in Mexico. It was in the coastal state of Veracruz, so we had the freshest seafood (which grossed me out at the time...my palette has 'matured' quite a bit since then), and a ton of Mexican… MORE

My grandmother's parents came to Mexico from Greece at the turn of the century. Because of this, she has always honored her heritage by cooking delicious Greek dishes, and by teaching others, such as my mom, to do the same. However just as with the mole I mentioned in the previous post, for… MORE

I've been in Mexico for only 5 days and I have already eaten mole three times! My family knows that it is one of my favorite dishes, so everyone makes it for me. Last summer I learned how to make mole verde, which is more soupy, and in my opinion, not as complex and flavorful as mole negro,… MORE

About Me
Hi Everyone! My name is Alina and I am a college student from Philadelphia, PA. I started baking in high school and for the past two years have been cooking quick and easy meals in my dorm as well. I love following tons of cooking websites, blogs, and photo-journals online for inspiration, in addition to my mom's old cookbooks and her tried and true recipes.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite thing to make are roasted veggies. I like how easy they are to make, and how they can be added to almost anything or even eaten by themselves!
My favorite family cooking traditions
When I was younger I would always help my mom make fresh tortillas before dinner. I remember sitting on the counter next to the tortilla press, and rolling little spheres of dough between my palms. I felt so strong and grown up once I could actually hold down the press with enough force to make a proper tortilla.
My cooking triumphs
A few months ago I prepared a molten chocolate cake under the tutelage of a world-renowned chef. I was terrified of messing up, so I asked him a million questions and double-checked everything. However it turned out delicious, and he was so happy with the results that he gave me his secret recipe as a present afterwards!
My cooking tragedies
It took me a very long time to figure out how to scramble and fry eggs. Before that all of my attempts yielded either very under- or over-cooked eggs that were pretty gross.
