Bunny Banana Caramel Bread Pudding For Easter!

Banana caramel bread pudding in a bunny shape for Easter I know exactly what I like, and I LOVE dessert. It’s not a fair-weather coupling or a casual like, I am hot blooded passionately in love with dessert. I obsess over cakes, and cookies, and donuts, and pan dulce, and pie, and bionicos, and gelatinas, and cream puffs, and the list goes on and on….

Berry Berry Good Pan Dulce Cake

Berry Berry Good Pan Dulce Cake

This berry laced cake is the closest thing you will get to pan dulce in a cake form. So light and moist, and all the ingredients can be bought at Walmart.

I like my world whimsical, fun, and full of love. I am known to live in a close knit circle of friends who all keep it positive.

Let’s talk about Fideo… My Mom and I are fans of a nice bowl of spicy fideo. We pride ourselves on who makes it better. We try and impress each other with fully loaded versions of our favorite sopa de fideo. Sometimes I make it super soupy and (more…)

potato mushroom enchiladas in a spicy tomatillo sauce. I bought all my ingredients at Walmart.

A few weeks ago a Supermarket reached out to me and asked if I could create a vegetarian recipe to be a special centerpiece on their website as a Lent feature. That’s like asking me if I could snore like a bear in my sleep. Duh! I gladly accepted (more…)

Which in my world means lots of parties and family gatherings sprinkled with friends and food. But we couldn’t have a gathering without POTATO SALAD, now could we? I decided to get a jump start on my (more…)
