Mazapán Custard Filled Donuts with a Chocolate Glaze. Once an idea pops into my head the baker in me can’t get it out until the task is completed, or in this case the donut. Mixing Mexican-American flavors OR as my friend Coqui says “American rooted in Mexican descent” flavors is naturally what I dream up, because it’s authentically me. These Mazapán Custard Filled Donuts dipped in a Chocolate Glaze are exactly a mixture of both my cultures rolled into one.(more…)

Rainbow Gelatina For Pride: I am a woman who stands in solidarity with the LGBTQ community. I was once a very young girl who stood in the same head space of loving, supporting, celebrating, and defending gay rights (as they were called in the 90’s). Nothing has changed. This is not a passing fancy for me and it’s not something I do to be on trend. I will always be an ally to my LGBTQ friends and family.(more…)
Calling all dessert lovers! Could we really celebrate Easter without a gorgeous dessert? I’m taking the fuss out of our Easter meal this year with a simple and easy Carlota! I decided to add cherries to my Carlota and change it’s traditional color of white to a festive pinkish-purple pastel. It’s the prettiest color but aside from that, the fresh cherry flavor only adds to this already delicious dessert…. pushing it all the way up in dessert ranks. Lucky for me, I was able to find all my ingredients at Northgate Market and pick up a few extra goodies while I was there. I hope you’ll try this Easter Cherry Carlota and make it whenever you have a bag of cherries hanging around.(more…)
I usually repurpose one of my senior pie photos on #PiDay because I make pie all year round. I felt this year deserved a brand new photo and something a little fantasy and hopeful. Mini apple pies seem to be a good portrayal of how I’ve been feeling. It’s almost as if I could touch the beginning of Spring and am anticipating some happy changes in the next couple of months. Fingers crossed. To be completely honest, I’ve hit the pandemic fatigue wall and know we are in the final stretch… just gotta hold on tight a little longer.(more…)
I am so grateful for your existence, and feel super lucky to call you my partner. I wanted to surprise you with a special breakfast, and I know that pizza is your favorite. Since you are my warm and fuzzy I desired to do something sweet for you. I ordered everything I needed from Northgate Market so I could give you my Cupid’s Arrow Breakfast Pizza. I made it with Mozzarella cheese, papas, roasted red peppers, and jalapeños. Each time you tear into this heart-shaped pizza pie remember how much I adore you. Thank you for putting a smile on my face, and for being so supportive always.

Ingredients for Cupid’s Arrow Breakfast Pizza:
- a batch of pizza dough – Click here for recipe
- 2 tablespoons Olive oil
- 2 tablespoons cornmeal
- 4 cups Mozzarella Cheese
- 1/4 cup sliced pickled jalapeños
- 1/4 cup roasted red bell pepper
- 2 potatoes, cooked and cut into heart shapes and arrow
- 4 eggs
Bring dough to room temp
Rub a baking sheet lightly with olive oil an hour and half before you’re ready to bake.
Pull plastic wrapped dough out of the refrigerator to come to room temperature.
45 minutes before ready to put your pizza in the oven, place a pizza stone on rack 1/4 of the way up from bottom of oven. Preheat oven to 500 degrees Fahrenheit.
Prepare the ingredients
Fry your potato hearts and arrow pieces. Set to the side.
Take one of your dough balls and place on a lightly floured surfaced and shape into a disk. Then continue to pull out into the desired size of your pizza by draping it over the back of your hands, and continue to rotate dough with the back of your hands in a clockwise motion with the aid of your thumbs.
Sprinkle your lightly olive oiled baking sheet with a pinch of cornmeal then lay pizza dough directly on top to form shape. Continue to go around the edges forming a slightly raised rim with the tips of your fingers by pinching and gathering the dough. Then shape into a heart.
Drizzle a 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil on the inside of the heart and then spread it around the inside with you fingers avoiding the rim.
Top with 1 cup mozzarella cheese, a few jalapenos, red roasted bell pepper, and a few potato hearts. Break a raw egg in the middle and place pizza in oven for 11 minutes or until crust is golden!
Bake each pizza one at a time. Place your heart shaped pizza on a plate and decorate with potato arrows, and serve with coffee, fresh fruit, a little salad.
If you follow my page closely, then you know I am a music girl. It’s a big part of my world and it’s also a great way to get to know a person. People who are absolutely impassioned by melody surround themselves with others of the same interest. This attraction usually leads to hours of music banter. I love when I get caught up in a storm of musical stories… Listening to how certain songs came to be or changed someone’s path completely.(more…)
