My name is Iveliz, Welcome to My Blog!
I am from a beautiful island you all know as Puerto Rico. Raised in New York in a household of 8 I am the eldest daughter of Elena & Alejandro. My mother remarried when I was 5 and soon after came my 3 younger sisters and two step siblings.
Raised in a mixed household (Puerto Rican/Ecuadorian/Colombian) I absorbed a fusion mixture of cuisine cooking.
I remember being four years old around the holidays when my mother thought I was old enough to start “guayando” yautía, green guineos and platanos verdes for my moms pastelles recipe she’d make for our traditional holiday events.
At 5, my kindergarten graduation present was learning how to make my “moro” a traditional blend of rice and beans in PR spices.
I must say… THANKS MOM! I wouldn’t be the cook I am today if it wasn’t for your persistent nagging about learning how to cook so “my husband doesn’t leave me” haha mom real funny… NOT!
My hobbies are… Blogging about food, Cooking, Photography, Writing, Collecting wearable art, Reading, Stalking the Williams-Sonoma Website, Traveling, Sightseeing, EXTREME Coupon Clipping (You know… for the sake of designer shoes) And Being a Tourist & Food Critic In My Beautiful City of New York.
I hope you will be enjoy this ride with me as I embark on this adventurousCulinary journey…
With Love, Iveliz
