LOOOVE to Cook

Cooking has been one of my passions since I was a little girl. My mom didn´t really teach me how to cook even though I think she was a pretty decent cook herself. I learned from magazines. I used to buy cooking books and magazines when I was 12 or 13 and I loved to experiment with the recipes. The results were mainly disastrous but that never dissuaded me from trying again, and again., and again.

I still collect books, and recipes, I still love to experiment in the kitchen. I favor Mediterranean, Spanish and Indonesian/Thai cooking. I buy spices and condiments when I travel and I am constantly updating my files.

I love ginger, garlic, sesame , olive oil ,fresh herbs, coconut, mango and pineapple. I think they add amazing flavor to a meal.

If you have recipes and/ or comments you´d like to exchange I would love to hear from you .

My current passion is Lebanese Food. I make great hummus, and this past week I made Mujaddara for the first time and it turned out great. My biggest food critic ( my daughter) loved it. She also likes the tabbouleh I make and I am experimenting with new recipe ( Quinoa tabbouleh and barley tabbouleh).<br />
I like experimenting in the kitchen, period.<br />
The other day I made a mean risotto using orzo. I added the cream , the wine, basil and great cheese and it was w-o-n-d-e-r-f-u-l !!<br />

Go ahead, Experiment with different grains, recipes, ingredients. Make a recipe your own. You wont be dissappointed and it is always so much fun.

I like cooking too. I am italian so I love experimenting with new pasta recipes. However, I try to cook Indian and chinese too cause i love trying out international cuisines.<br />
Keep it up.

I have far too many recipe books, I can't help buying them and collecting magazine clippings etc so many recipes I will never have the time or skill to make!<br />
<br />
I like Thai flavours too - there is a fabulous little Thai/Vietnamese place I go to that makes the most delicious panang and massuman curries. Divine!

As I said, I have never tried it and if you can find the recipe I would love to see it. Thank you so much. :-)

I have my recipe here somewhere. When I locate the badboy would you like it? <br />
Birria is goat meat (usually) cooked in and with a pepper base or broth type deal. Think stew meat, but a lot better and you eat it with tortillas and onion. Some people put lime to, but that is ruining the flavor of the meat and the pepper broth. So goooooood! If, it's made right. My ex's father showed me his way of prepping it. =)

I would love to do fellow humans a favor but my expertise on Mexican cuisine is close to zero ( I can make a mean Guacamole but that is pretty much it ). <br />
What is Birria ? Do you have a recipe ? Given the fact that I am not Anthony Bourdain I think I will skip the iguana but I still would like to try it.

Cook AUTHENTIC Mexican...please. For nothing else other than doing your fellow human a favor. Try your hand at Birria. Make it with goat, lamb or iguana if you are feeling adventurous. Hehe >=)
