I really want to create two very distinct types of recipe books. One that reflects my family and latin culture and the other one that has easy, flavorful, low calorie recipes. I am constantly collecting recipes, printing them out and then loosing track of them before I ever get to try them out. I probably have over 10 recipe collection boxes on various websites (if not more). I am a self-taught cook, which to my dismay, means I did not learn how to cook a lot of the Puerto Rican dishes my mother makes so well. I have made variations of my own, but they seem to lack that authentic and unique flavor that I have come to associate with Puerto Rican food. I would like to create a cookbook to pass these recipes on to my children so that the art of cooking these traditional dishes does not get lost to the generations to come. As for the low calorie dishes, I simply need a way to organize easy-to-make recipes that combine flavor and nutrients in a satisfying and yet low calorie way. I have several recipes that I want to test out and if the meet these criterias then I will add them to this cookbook. So any ideas or suggestions would be much welcomed!
