Recipes I have made myself, photographed, tested and tasty
Great idea for Halloween and Thanksgiving!
How cool is this? Use the pumpkin as the serving bowl for this Rice and Vegetables dish. If you don’t like rice with fruits, substitute meat instead, and add different herbs. Rice can be replaced with potatoes too.
Pan De Muerto
Each year on November 1st and 2nd in Mexico as well as in Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, people celebrate the Day of the Dead. This is a touching and at the same time joyous holiday when people remember their dead relatives and ancestors. A special place on the table is Pan de Muerto “Bread of the Dead”. There are many varieties but it is usually round in shape, often with the addition of anise seeds and orange zest, strips of dough on top in the form of bones, and on top a round ball symbolizing the skull.
What’s in season
From cakes and quick breads to pies and pancakes, everything benefits from the sweet and spiced flavor of pumpkin.
Autumn is here…
Keep warm as the weather turns cooler with these easy fall recipes!
Slow cooker (crock pot)
Slow cooking allows flavors to steep and blend together. It circulates heat and liquid so food stays moist.
Love my garden
I love gardening so much, it makes my world beautiful. I have a vegetable/herb garden, flower gardens, fruit trees and berries. When I am outside I feel happy, too bad we don’t have nice weather all year but when we do, we are gardening! 😉
