Gingerbread Caramel Pear Empanadas:

These delicious delights known as Gingerbread Caramel Pear Empanadas have my kitchen resembling a Christmas elf factory. Except it’s just me and my little family playing all elves trying to churn out as many as possible. The way I look at it, I’m continuing to keep family traditions alive this holiday season.  I’ve taken my little boy under my baking wing and am teaching him to make empanadas the way my grandfather taught me. I’m using my trusty caramel recipe made with NESTLÉ® LA LECHERA® Sweetened Condensed Mil​k, and pairing it with my grandfather’s gingerbread empanada recipe giving my caramel pear filling a little twist.  La Lechera (available at Walmart) is my trusted partner to make classic holiday recipes come to life. In my Gingerbread Caramel Pear Empanadas I used La Lechera in both my caramel and to make the royal icing. Pair this holiday treat with a mug of NESTLÉ® ABUELITA® Mexican Hot Chocolate and let the nostalgia sweep over you. <3 (more…)

Holiday Double Crusted Apple Pie Perfection!

Holiday Double Crusted Apple Pie Perfection!

This double crusted apple pie is perfect for the Holiday season.

I’ve been on a double crusted apple pie tear lately.

Since I was a little girl (me, pictured below in the black and white stripes) I’ve always tinkered with pie-making but making one that fits my standards now was more my aim. We’ve all bought the fresh ready made pie dough from the market, but I was looking to perfecting my own. I’m glad I was inspired to get grooving on my pie making abilities again (before the holidays). I seriously upped my ante and the results couldn’t be more satisfying. (more…)

Chocolate Chip Pretzel Candied Pecan Cookies inspired by The House With A Clock In Its Walls

My family and I were invited to a pre-screening of “The House With A Clock In Its Walls” this past Saturday, the new movie directed by Eli Roth (Hostel/DeathWish)and starring Jack Black and Cate Blanchett. The House With A Clock In Its Walls is a magical kid-scary film. It reminds me of the movies that used to be made back in the 80’s that were just frightening enough to make you jump out of your seat, but nothing that would project your dreams into nightmares.

Pistachio Fig Arroz Con Leche: Gluten Free Dessert

Pistachio Fig Arroz Con Leche: Gluten Free Dessert

Pistachio Fig Arroz Con Leche makes a fantastic gluten free treat.

The story of Pistachio Fig Arroz Con Leche: I got this friend named Rachel, I like to call her Miss Killers, but that’s different story for another time. Rachel is gluten-free and has been for a while now. It seems like most of our encounters are planned around food, either it’s a potluck or a restaurant rendezvous, but (more…)

Moist Layer Orange Cake With Buttercream Frosting closeup

Moist Layer Orange Cake With Buttercream Frosting has been the topper to my month of August and my headache. I have made the cake pictured above a few dozen times from a recipe I had jotted down on a torn piece of paper and casually placed amongst my books. Most recently my handwritten recipe has gone MIA, which threw me into a total panic, because a dear friend was requesting it. I kept asking myself why didn’t I ever put this recipe on my blog? How in the world did I misplace one of my treasured recipes? It was back to the development drawing board for me. To be honest, I had to make 3 different versions of my Moist Layer Orange Cake With Buttercream Frosting until it tasted exactly the way I remember the outcome tasting of my handwritten recipe. Here it is… never to be lost again. (more…)

Cherry Tres Leches Cake

Cherry Tres Leches Cake

My Cherry Tres Leches Cake is the best I've ever tasted.

I’m a big fan of cherries. They are probably my favorite stone fruit. I only say that with a little hesitation because I’m thinking that statement through, but yeah, cherries are my favorite. I’ve been making cherry desserts since I was thirteen. I’ve made a few here even, my cherry almond mini cakes, chocolate cherry bread pudding, and pecan cherry pancakes. You get my point, I’m a cherry cheerleader. (more…)
