@CakeyP:  my recipes are super easy but authentic. My mom ever cooked sparish but my Abuela is my favorite person in the world and when the time comes where I can’t have her food will be the saddest time in my life. 

 

I’ll send you the recipe for sofrito. It’s a mixture that you can freeze and that you will use to flavor most everything.

Tostones (fried plantains) are a good way to start.  If you could find a place to order lechon/pernil (roast pork) you’re halfway there.

 

Buy 1-2 green plantains (not the ripe, yellow ones).  Don’t peel, and cut into 1/2″ disks.  Peel the individual disks.  Over medium high heat, get about 1/2″ of oil heated up and fry the disks for about 2 minutes on each side, until golden brown.  Remove from the oil onto paper towels.  Take the still warm disks and flatten them–there’s a paddle for it, but you can use the bottom of a can, rolling pin, whatever.  Put the squashed disks back in the oil and fry again for about 1-2 minutes on each side until nice and crisp.  Drain on paper towels again and salt lightly.  Sooooooo goooood.  Do a few at a time until you get the hang of it.

My favorite dish ever is MOFONGO, you can add whatever meat you’d like to eat but i prefer pork or shrimp. It is made with green plantains. 

It’s really easy to make and you can find many recipes online. 

Also you can never go wrong with white rice and some puerto rican seasoned beans.
