    Hibiscus and Mint Popsicle Recipe

    A couple of months ago I try The Good Pop Hibiscus popsicles at HEB  as soon as I tried them, I knew I had to re create that Hibiscus and Mint Popsicle recipe.

The hard thing for me was to find the right meat, because I wasn’t sure what type of beef I should use, the beef cuts in USA are really different from Latin America. After some research I found out I…

Crips lemon shortbread cookies covered and topped with lemon icing and peanuts.  When I was a little girl, on the first level of the building where we lived there was a bakery.

    Cranberry orange muffin recipe

    The story behind this Cranberry orange muffin recipe is really funny. We started a diet a few weeks ago ( the keto diet) and Cris wanted to make keto friendly crepes. He decided to make the same recipe he usually makes and just replace regular flour with coconut flour. I knew that it was going to be a totally failure, but he made them and in fact they were a failure lol. They were a mess but it tasted good. He did not gave up, he added more ingredients, pour them in cupcake tins and bake them, we were amazed by the result. It wasn’t a failure after all lol.…
