About this Cook
I'm a dominican woman, married to a wonderful american man, who also enjoys cooking even more than i do... I like cooking all kinds of things, specially lebanese and mediterranean dishes. My country also has a very good cooking tradition, a mixture of Taino, Spanish and Creole cuisines :) I love cooking for people, and learning new things.
My favorite things to cook
All the things my mom taught me to do... Pizza... My own inventions (normally cooked with whatever i can find in my kitchen at the time, lol)... Oriental food (with a wok)
My favorite family cooking traditions
In my family, since we are of a mixed ethnic background (my grandma is dominican, she married a lebanese man, my grandpa), what we make is a mixture of both dominican and middle eastern dishes. My favorite thing my mom makes is stuffed grape leaves. But my husband loves my rice and beans, and okra and rice. My aunts also make something called "pastel en hoja", a meat pie that's wrapped in plantain leaves and then boiled, i love that too.
My cooking triumphs
Pizza :) my friends buy the ingredients so i can make it for them. Okra and rice stew is good too. I also have made good oriental (thai and chinese) food in the past (the kind with lots of vegetables and pieces of meat)
My cooking tragedies
I can't bake. My cakes are always too big for some reason. I can make salty food in the oven, just not desserts. I'm hard headed, though :) i keep trying, and my husband eats my disasters every time.

Baked Asparagus with Balsamic Butter Sauce
We loved it :) i did use seasoned salt instead, and not as much of the sauce, but it was delicious. Will definitively make again.

Amish Cookies
I've made these cookies a lot for my school (i'm a kindergarten teacher) and it's really good and very easy to make. But i've always taken a fork dipped in sugar to flatten them a bit, and give them a nice shape, then i put sprinkles on them (depending on the season, the colors change). My students love them!
