Welcome To My Kitchen

Hello, old friends, new friends, and family! Welcome to my first post!  I am very excited to be here and to share my recipes with you.  Before starting this site I asked myself, why do this, if there are so many wonderful food blogs with scrumptious recipes and beautiful photography? And the answer is why not. I love to cook;  I love to feed people and I am sure I can bring a thing or two to your table.  One thing I must tell you is that I am not a good photographer, therefore, I do not own a professional camera, but I promise to do the best I can.

As you can see above, I have created different tabs which are self explanatory, but I will like to explain a little about Latin Lover and Kid's Corner. In the Latin Lover section you will see the recipes that I grew up with and that still make today, like delicious black beans, arroz con pollo, and torrejas.  

In the Kid's Corner, you will see lot of goodies that children enjoy.  You will see my granddaughter Katelyn Rose in full baking mode. I will also include tutorials so you can learn the know how.

I hope you enjoy my site and feel the love that I take into making all of these recipes.
Enjoy and visit me often. And now preheat your oven to 375 degrees!  These chocolate chip cookies are so delicious that you almost don't want to share them with anyone.

                                                       Chocolate Chip Cookies

Adapted from Anne Thornton's Fleur de sel Chocolate Chip Blondies

2 sticks unsalted butter, softened

1 cup packed brown sugar

1/2 cup granulated sugar

2 1/3 cup all purpose flour

1 1/4 teaspoon basking soda

Pinch salt

2 large eggs

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

3 cups semisweet chocolate chips (yes, three cups)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Line cookie sheet with parchment or wax paper.

Beat butter in the bowl of a stand mixer with paddle attachment until is light and fluffy(at medium speed). Add brown and granulated sugars a little at a time. Stop mixer at times to scrape sides and bottom of bowl with spatula.  Cream the butter and sugar mixture for about 8 minutes.

I separate bowl whisk flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.  Add your eggs to butter mixture one a a time mixing after each addition, add vanilla.  Turn mixer to low and slowly add flour mixture, then add chocolate chips until well incorporated.

I use a mini ice cream scoop to place cookie dough on lined sheets.  Space about two inches apart.  Bake for about 12 minutes depending on how chewy or crispy you like your cookies.

A tall glass of milk is mandatory!
