Farro Shrimp Salad {Recipe}

I am obsessed with farro (American name: spelt). Ever since this Italian grain stepped into my life we have been best of friends. Farro was invited to my Thanksgiving table this year for the first time and will make several appearances over the holiday season as a decadent salad. It has such an interesting nutty texture and when paired with Nakano’s Red Pepper Rice Vinegar it becomes legendary. Initially when I first started experimenting with this salad it was lackingRead More ...

Tortillas: Nutritious and Delicious

The smell of freshly made tortillas immediately takes me back to my childhood – specifically the time I was between 6 and 8 years old. As many of you know, I was born in Peru, but I had the fortune to live in several countries as I was growing up and one of them was Mexico. So, as a child, I would be given one peso so that I could run out and get some freshly pressed tortillas when the tortillero visitedRead More ...

Choco-Mint Christmas Cookies {Recipe}

We love incorporating candy canes in every Christmas project we can.  We tie them on our wreaths and garlands. We use them as walking sticks to adorn our fancy ginger bread men.  We use them as hot chocolate stirrers or bribe our three-year-old son with them to clean up his toys. My favorite by far, is making these cookies to enjoy Christmas morning. With a cup of coffee at hand, pajamas on and a big smile on our faces theseRead More ...

We jumped on the opportunity because it sounded like a great way to bring you some original recipes and get us in the kitchen while at it! We got creative with it and put together aRead More ...

Super Easy Thanksgiving Side Dish: Papas a la vinagreta {Recipe}

We’re getting ready for our Latino-inspired Thanksgiving dinner later this week. I don’t really dig turkey too much (except for the one my dad used to make) and neither does my husband, so we don’t make turkey. Instead, my husband cooks a mean pernil made Puerto Rican style. ¡Delicioso! I’m in charge of making the side dishes and this year I wanted to try something new and easy to make. So for this #MizkanLatino cooking challenge, a healthy and originalRead More ...

Fun and Easy Pumpkin Pie Pops {Recipe}

Have the niños take part in your family’s Thanksgiving dinner preparation this year.   Pumpkin pie pops are a great spin-off of the traditional pumpkin pie dessert we all love to indulge in after the big dinner. Not only are they fun and easy for little hands to assemble, but require very few ingredients to create.  Because everything is ten times more fun on a stick, think of  this autumn treat as circular empanaditas on a stick. Arrange them inRead More ...
