I love cooking and finding that perfect recipe. There are many foods that I like that aren’t available here in Spain or if I do happen to find it… it is a poor imitation and usually expensive. This led me to learn how to make all those foods that I normally would have bought back in the US. I love the homemade versions. They taste better, are cheaper and I know it´s healthier. I have a rule that only tried and approved recipes make it into my little cookbook. I admit that these aren’t my own recipes but after trial and error… these are my favorites!
