Make Cinnamon Roll Hearts for the one you love.

I’ve been dying to make a cinnamon rolls since Christmas time, but that thing called ‘life’ hasn’t allowed me the time to get the yeast rising. I decided Valentine’s would be the little space of time I’d sock away to enjoy the craft of making Cinnamon Roll Hearts, as a gift to myself and the ones I love.

Breakfast Waffle Fruit Salad:

Did you kickoff 2019 with a New Year’s resolution? Technically we are still at the very start of the 12 month period and resolutions are very much stable and rooted in our daily routines. But can we sustain them? My New Year’s Resolution was simple this year, eat outside more and incorporate more fruit into my diet.

Mexican Beer Oaxaca Cheese Dip And Football Pretzels

Football shaped pretzels served with a Mexican Beer Oaxaca Cheese Dip. Absolutely delicious combination of my american culture and my ever present Mexican culture.
Football shaped pretzels served with a delicious Mexican Beer Oaxaca Cheese Dip!

Like most people, the first thing I think about when hosting or being invited to a game day party is the food. To be honest, I don’t even know the rules of football or who plays on what team. I don’t care about half time, especially this year, and only a portion of the multi million famed commercials grab my attention. All I care about are the snacks.

Manchego Quince On A Stick:

Oh my GAWD!!!! I think I just died and went to cheese heaven. For the first time in my life I had Manchego Quince on a stick. It’s the first time because I’ve never seen them anywhere else in my time on earth. I was sitting home getting ready for the football game and wanted a batch of mozzarella sticks, but then thought it boring. “The same ol cheese sticks again?” is exactly what ran through my mind. Instead I jumped into action and paired my beloved manchego cheese with quince fruit paste, a flavor combination typically intertwined in Spain. Quince fruit paste goes by the Spanish name Membrillo, and is becoming very easy to find in bigger supermarkets and Mexican boutique markets. Once I settled on the flavor, I breaded the manchego quince stacks and fried them to a golden crisp. (more…)

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…)
