Let me tell you, I could eat this for dinner every…

Lazy Falafel Tacos

Welcome to 2018! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday, I managed to eat my weight in cookies and chocolate. I don’t know if this happens to you, but when I eat really poorly my body starts to crave healthy food. It wants more fruit and vegetables. One of the things I’ve been craving…

Big AF Pot of Black Beans

My husband is the muse behind these beans, he was really craving a humble dish of white rice, black beans and a fried egg on top. Its a poor mans dish, one that if you’re Latin you  have had at one time or another. Its an affordable dish and its filling! I was not going…

Queso Fundido Tostones

You guys I have done it! I have managed to make queso fundido portable, but I didn’t just put it in any old receptacle. We are making tostones cups, because that’s how I roll. This is also the perfect appetizer for your New Years shindig. During New Years my husband and I love to watch…

Merry Christmas!!

Today marks my first year blogging during Christmas, I have had so much fun coming up with cookie recipes for this holiday season. Thank you so much for following my blog, we are extremely grateful! Enjoy your families, as I will be doing the same. But just in case you haven’t seen all the cookies…

GF Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

I feel like people with food allergies sometimes get the short end of the stick. We take for granted that we are able to eat whatever we like without any issues, cookie season is here along with cookie exchange parties and finding a decent gluten free cookie is no easy feat. I have a family…

Uniconchas

I had a few inspirations for these Conchas last week. On Facebook one of my cousins from Houston posted this bakery that sold uniconchas! Basically regular Conchas but the tops are colored purple, pink and blue. It’s like a unicorn! But alas I live in Miami and I don’t have access to Conchas, well I…

Chocolate Alfajores

I feel like its crunch time y’all! Where has the time gone! All I want for Christmas is to get you all these cookie recipes I have. But I don’t think I’ll have enough time! I have been craving alfajores for sometime now, but not just any alfajor. I want the ones from Peru, that…

Chocolate Hazelnut Spread Cookies

“Its cookie time, its cookie time, its cookie time”!!! This song is from one of my all time favorite movies Troop Beverly Hills .  The premise of the movie has absolutely nothing to do with these cookies, but it does have a lot to do with girl scouts trying to sell cookies, amongst other things….

White Chocolate Guava Cookies

Hi, my name is Iris and I have a problem with guava. Now I never knew how obsessed I was with guava until I started reviewing my recipes . We have these Cuban Blondies, Guava and Cream Cheese Ring Puff and now White Chocolate Guava Cookies. I first had these cookies from a restaurant here in…

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

I know, I know, its December and here I am still harassing you guys with another pumpkin recipe. I can’t help it, I know my window of pumpkin acceptance is slowly diminishing. So I had to get this last one out before the New Year. These would be great for a cookie swap, or you…

Butternut Squash Fettuccine

We had a bit of a cold snap a few weeks ago in Miami and by cold snap I mean it got down to 60 degrees! I know this may be nothing to you, but this is when we break out our winter coats and boots, because you just don’t know if this will happen…
