Single mother of one great teenager. I love to cook. I believe my love for cooking stemmed from my mothers lack of cooking ability and my grandmothers absolutely wonderful authentic russian cooking. I am Russian and Puertorican so my food taste varies. In fact, I pretty much love almost every food and am very open to trying new foods.
My favorite things to cook
Gandule (red rice) Rice, potato salad, meatloaf, homemade bread, borscht, beer butt chicken.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Gandule rice, borscht, Ikra, Meatballs and mashed potatoes.
My cooking triumphs
Any meal that makes my son say "Mom that was really good." Could you honestly hear better words?
My cooking tragedies
Cakes...um I'll go buy an ice cream cake before I'll try to make another one.
