Browned Butter Orange Chocolate Cake

Hi all! This week my baby girl Sophia turns 4! Where has the time gone! This cake was inspired by one of my favorite bloggers A Cozy Kitchen she has this amazing Crackily Chocolate Cardamom Meringue Cake. I doctored it up a bit, but she is the genius behind this amazing cake. It turns out…

Mexican Tamales

This is on my bucket list of things I’d like to make before I die. I seem to get intimidated with recipes my family makes because they already make it so tasty, could I actually recreate the dish and have it taste as good if not better than my family. These tamales were originally done…

Chickpea Cups

I was given the opportunity to participate in a challenge called #Beansgreensandproteinchallenge. This has been a fun way for me to get out of my comfort zone and start experimenting in the kitchen. I was going to make a big pot of garbanzos, but I thought that was a bit boring and I wanted to…

Brie Bites with Guava

I have a little treat for you guys today, it’s something you might want to keep under your belt. If you have crescent dough, brie, guava paste and strawberry preserves you have yourself the perfect appetizer for last minute guests or for your parties. 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!!

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….
