Pasta with Fresh Tomato Sauce (Pasta con Salsa de Tomates Fresco)

Last weekend it snowed in New York, about 4-6 inches. I felt snowed it. Too lazy to shovel, too lazy to go out, and too lazy to change into normal clothes. I then got hungry for Linner (lunch/dinner). I wanted to make something fresh, light, and easy. I present to you a delicious, non-stressful, healthy meal. You’ll…See More

Profile Information

About Me:
My name is Sherlly and I love food. Currently residing in New York, but born and raised in Miami, Florida. Ever since I could remember food was always on my mind and a big part of my family. Mother was a house wife and always cooked, she never missed a day of it. She taught me the love and passion towards cooking. I would always sit in the kitchen counter and watch mother prepare dinner and in those times it was my Food Network but Live. Mother is Ecuadorian and father is Colombian. In my father’s teen/young adult years he worked as a cook in the Garde Manger section of Le Cirque. Started from the bottom and worked his way up to cold appetizers up until he got too tired working long dreadful hours on the weekends, so in the end he opened his own casting company….Yeah I know random. So pretty much all my life I saw my father on the weekends his company is located in New York City and when visiting he would prepare the best Colombian dishes, use the French techniques he learned in Le Cirque and show it off to the family. Food once again was and still is a big part of my life.

After high school I attended Le Cordon Bleu for about 5 months out of the year I was supposed to take, so I don’t know if I could count that into my culinary resume but you know what…..I learned a lot they were intense classes Monday – Friday for 7 hours a day of just cooking, learning techniques and what not. I then moved to Guayaquil, Ecuador traveled all over the country, learned a bit about the culture and of course the food. This country is a must to go and visit it’s cheap, fun, beautiful, and the food is delicious! After about 4 or so months living there I moved to New York to live with my father. I applied to The French Culinary Institute and graduated in May of 2010 with a degree of Culinary Arts. Yes, I finally did it. Finished a culinary program.

I really love to collect, read/browse cookbooks and food magazines. I find inspiration in everything I see and eat. I want to share all these amazing recipes I have and know about with you. I also love kitchen gadgets and anything kitchen related. Whenever I have the time I would go and wander around William Sonoma, Sur La Table, and Crate and Barrel. I just want to buy everything! My kitchen is pretty much set and full of kitchen utensils and electronics but I’m always dreaming I’ll have more than what I have now….Oh yes I dream BIG.
My favorite foods are:
Everything!
My favorite chefs/cooks are:
Don't have a favorite. All chefs are talented in their own ways.
Do you have a food related website?
Yes

Colombian Coffee Merengue Cookies

Oh merengues……Fluffy, airy, sweet, and light are what describes these cookies. There are different types of ways in making a merengue so unique. Some like it plain with just sugar, some like it with vanilla essence, and some like it lemony. But  mine (I’m sorry) beats it all! ^_^ I added Colombian Coffee to make it….Well,…
