Cookingly (and slightly grinningly) yours,


Looking through the archives

At this time I would like to direct your attention to the not so distant past. I’ve been adding recipes here for almost 3 months now. Some of you have been here from the beginning, but I’m guessing most of you have not.

I’ve mentioned before that my cooking palette is pretty diverse thanks to my mom’s influence. Most often, though, you will see a Latin-Caribbean undertone to what I prepare. Mexican touches are probably the next most common variation, then Indian and the rest of the world.

Allow me to point you back to some of my personal favorites. I hope they’ll end up on your cooking playlist. Let’s take a look.

This one is not so much about cooking, but rather about having a few things handy and ready beforehand. I ALWAYS have both of these items at hand.  Crushed garlic & habanero paste.

 Hubby’s favorite dish. Or at least one of the top 5.


Shrimp is one of those things I can eat whenever. This is my absolute favorite way to prepare it.

And you can’t have shrimp al ajillo without good rice.


And because I love legumes, I bring you lentils!


I’m a pork lover, I probably cook some cut of it at least 3-4 times a month.

The last 2 recipes are very dear to my heart, but may fall within the ‘acquired taste’ realm. Nonetheless, to love me is to know what I love.

Here you have a delicious bowl of mondongo.

And behind door #2, Corvina frita, baby!

I hope you enjoyed this little trip down memory lane.

Cookingly yours,
