Welcome to my Family Favorites Cookbook!! All of these delicious recipes have been enjoyed by our family and friends. Many of them have come from favorite cookbooks or magazines, some have been handed down from great cooks in the family, while others have been inspired by the moment and the occasion, and many have been given to me by wonderful friends who also enjoy cooking as much as I do. But be assured that all of them have graced our family's table for different holidays and family get-togethers throughout the year!
My cooking is inspired by the region I live in, The South. It has a Cuban twist to it due to my heritage and upbringing. I tend to use lots of different seasonings, garlic and onions in main dishes, I feel strongly this is the "soul" of the dish. I also believe wholeheartedly in marinating meats overnight. Many of the poultry and meat dishes have a Mediterranean flavor to them as well.
Because we entertain a lot throughout the year, I have quite an assortment of desserts, menu ideas and Holiday recipes. I am lucky that I also have a huge collection of wonderful regional cookbooks to help me decide what to serve my family. Happy Cooking!!
