  • Thomas R. Wonders November 5, 2012, 6:14 PM

    I love “Eating” Dominican food, ALMOST as much as “Cooking” Dominican food!!
    A “Pressure Cooker’, is an “Essencial” in all Dominican kitchens.
    Makes the more inexpensive cuts of meat.
    I have been following “Aunt Clara’s” recipe’s since she was “Born”!
    Thank You “AC”!!!!!!!!!!!!
    “Tio Thomas”!
