I still watch clips of those telenovelas on youtube every now and then. lol I love them!

Damn, I feel so old and I'm only 39.


Sofrito is good to use when you're making stews, like bean stew. I use it twice a week to make garbanzo stew. I make it and freeze it. You sautee it in a pan with olive oil, then you add all your other ingredients such as more onions, potatoes, olives, tomato sauce, beans, etc. it adds so much more flavor and depth to stews. I also once made a sofrito soup that was off the hook.


I made Rellenos de papa a while back. I still have pictures of it. Yes, I take pictures of my food..

Same here. No shame in that

In fact it gives us a better picture of what you're talking about without having to google it.

Exactly. I've been meaning to save my pics on a blog, but been too busy and too lazy.

I don't have actual recipes of most of the foods I cook because I do it all by taste, from the heart.

Sofrito is basically a spice mixture. You don't eat it by itself - you use it as a seasoning for your food.

ALSO THOSE LOOK DELICIOUS OLIVIA. Made my mouth water just looking at 'em. I know most of these recipes by heart too but my grandmother decided to write some out as a cookbook for all of her children and grandchildren as a Christmas gift about ten years ago. I treasure that thing because in my copy, I also have stashed a bunch of photocopies of recipes she's written down in a hurry that no one else has. So I feel like I'm preserving a bit of her history by saving them.

I'll be making cookies next week once I finish my finals (and knock this migraine out - going on day six, woo). I'll be sure to post photos and share recipes again!

Do I like bacalao? That's like asking if a fat man loves cake (pardon the expression). Bacalao con viandas is like my favorite lunchtime meal EVER. I'm a sucker for ñame and yuca. Yautía, not so much. But I'll eat yuca or ñame like mashed potatoes any day of the week. I can find yuca at the local grocer but it's an hour-long drive to find both ñame or bacalao, so I don't eat it that often. Whenever I'm near Compare I always forget that it's in the same town as the mall so I wind up making it home and kicking myself in the rear for not remembering sooner

Jess, bacalao is basically stockfish - salted and dried cod or whitefish (I can't remember which it is, but it's yummy and that's all that my tummy cares about). You can eat it from the packet but it's super-super-salty, so most people boil it in water to get some of the salt out. After you boil it you can mix it with a bit of olive oil and cooked roots and mash it together. There are also a few recipes that call for it but I've only had it with the mashed roots. My abuela calls it "jibara food", like country cookin' because it's inexpensive and often a staple diet of poorer communities (at least where she used to live as a child).
