Carmen Santos de Curran . . .
The Rican Chef's real name is Carmen Pilar Santos de Curran. I
was born in Ft. Brooke's Army Base in San Juan, Puerto Rico on October
26, 1949. You figure my age! Take a look at my picture and see that
I still look good (todavia me quedan cantos buenos). I lived in
Puerto Rico my first eight years, and as an Army brat, I was taken
to Panama where we lived for 3 years, and later moved around alot
as my dad was reassigned. I have lived on the island on and off
throughout my live.
My husband is Bob Curran, PhD., and we have settled in the Dallas
area. I am blessed to have all my immediate family in close proximity.
My father is Antonio "Tono" Santos, (Army - Silver Star)
and my dear mother is Pilar Rodriguez Robert. I have two children
(both born in Hato Rey), Fernando Aleman (http://www.devworkz.com),
and Monica Aleman, and one grandson Isaac Viktor. In the Spring
of this year I will have another grandbaby.
I like to cook, can you tell (¿se nota?), make crafts and collect
postage stamps and Hard Rock Café pins, so send me some. I am a
member of the American Philatelic Society, the Virtual Stamp Club
and belong to 2 different Boricua Associations, one in Dallas, Texas
and the other in San Jose, California.
I also love to write poems, some of which were published in El
Boricua and in the newsletter in the Boricua Association of Dallas,
Enjoy my recipes.
