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.

What’s in season

It is apple season. Apples are often eaten raw, baked, or stewed, but also they can be dried, or you can make them into apple juice, cider, sauce, pies, cider vinegar, jelly, butter, caramel, candy, chips, crisp and much more!

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! 😉
