Guava and Apple Dutch Pie

This pie came to me on a whim, I had left over guava paste and wanted to use it up. So I googled guava apple pie and found nothing, which always makes me giddy inside, because I love making new recipes. Let me put it to you this way, the pie smelled so delicious that…

Jalapeno Queso Fresco Biscuits

One of the things I love to do around the holidays is bake and come up with new recipes to share with my family for Thanksgiving. I’ve never served biscuits for Thanksgiving so I figured I’d give these a shot and see how they fair with my family. Let me give you a little background…

Butternut Squash Pie

I am just in awe, with how quickly this year has gone by. It seems as though the older you get, the quicker the years seem to fly by. Thanksgiving is upon us which means I am all about PIE! I love all pie, apple pie, pecan pie, pumpkin pie, coconut creme pie, you name […]

Easy Chicken Salad

I had a lot of left over ingredients from cooking, so I decided to throw this easy chicken salad together. You could totally use a rotisserie chicken and just shred that sucker up, if you don’t feel like cooking your own chicken. We had grilled chicken tenderloin the day prior and I wanted to jazz…

Mini Pumpkin Cheesecake filled Donuts 

You guys, I have come up with the most ingenious idea known to man. Mini pumpkin cheesecake donuts. But that’s not the genius part, the filling is made with Ben & Jerry’s pumpkin cheesecake ice cream! It came to me the other day that ice cream is basically like a custard so why not melt…

What we have here is the best of both worlds. You have flan and chocolate cake all mixed into one. It’s also a show stopper, because people can’t imagine how you put a flan and cake together. But I’m here to show you that this is one of the easiest cakes you will ever make….

Guava and Cream Cheese Ring Puff

Welcome to a Cuban girls dream, a big ass pastelito filled with guava and Cream Cheese. I love pastelitos, but let’s be honest it’s not very big and you always end up wanting more! Plus a lot of times the filling to pastry ratio is lacking in the filling department. What I have here is…

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

I know , I know, two quick bread posts in a row! But I really enjoyed this during Hurricane Irma and I had to share. I’m happy to say that hurricane Irma is now safetly behind us. We were very blessed that we had no damage done to our property and that all of our…
