Hello! I was born in the US but travel back and forth from Panama with my new husband :) I come from a family of great cooks so my love for food goes way back. Being newly married I feel as though I have a lot to learn about ccooking for my family, but I really love making people oooo and aahhh with wonderful food. I am enjoying learning Panamaian cooking techiniques and adapting with what I know to create tastes that are all my own. Since being a member of Zaar I have found friendly advice and great people with amazing recipes, it truely feels like a family - I love it! Rachel Ray's 30 min. meals - has been a life saver for me! Also, for beginner cooks, Dad's Own Cookbook is wonderful too! I hope someday to open a restaurant here in Panama.
