    Tres Leches Cake recipe

    This is the best homemade Tres leches cake recipe. It has been the favorite to celebrate birthdays in my family for years, my mom bakes tres leches for everyone’s birthday and we all look forward to it. It’s no surprise that the tradition continues with my own family. My mom tops the cake with French meringue, wich it’s totally dreamy, but it really is too cloying. So I made a variation and I topped the cake with whipping cream. Mi oldest son always asks for tres leches for his birthday, and it has been so challenging for me! (Because if you know me, you know how much I love decorating cakes…

    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.…

    Low Carb Pumpkin mousse Pie

    What’s thanks giving dinner without Pumpkin Pie? We started the KetoDiet about two weeks ago, and thank God we got to host thanksgiving at our house, that way we prepared low carb friendly food for everyone. The hardest thing with gluten free/ sugar free/ keto pastry recipes for me is to find something really tasty. I really hate the flavor of stevia, I can’t handle it. On my search for a Low carb Pumpkin Pie recipe online, I found one at Simply so healthy blog, that really caught my attention because they didn’t used stevia, but a granulated stevia/ erythritol blend. Plus the mousse had a crust just like pumpkin…

    Overnight Mango and Matcha Oatmeal

    I had seen lots of overnight oatmeal recipes lately and I decided to give it a try, the mango and greek yogurt version caught my attention, I mixed matcha to the yogurt and it turned out really yummy! The mango and matcha flavors together make a great combination. If you are not familiar with matcha, I strongly suggest you to try it, the flavor is really intense, so you might want to start with small quantities and try it blending in different food, you can even make a Matcha Latte! It’s delicious and it’s packed with so many benefits. If you want to learn more about matcha, benefits and nutritional facts visit Body, Health, Love blog, she made an…

    Pineapple sorbet

    I can’t find words to describe how spectacular it’s the taste of this sorbet, the cinnamon topping adds a unique flavor! I know! we are just in January and it’s cold, very cold, but over here we love ice cream, especially if it´s homemade. I made the recipe using an ice cream machine but you can do it without a machine. One of the most frequent problems when making sorbets, it’s that as soon as you freeze it, it becomes really hard like a solid brick of ice and loses the soft and smooth texture. I found a blog post “sorbet 101¨ at Zoe Bakes, in which she explains that the…

    Yogurt + Matcha + Honey

     We all know the amazing benefits of greek yogurt, full of protein and probiotics and matcha it’s also packed with many benefits. This is a super easy way to vary the typical taste of yogurt having a powerful and nutritious breakfast!   We buy Greek yogurt with honey, but if you have plain yogurt you can add one or two teaspoons of honey and add 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of matcha (the highest quality powdered green tea available). I personally add 1/2 teaspoon, I suggest you go testing 1/4 teaspoon at a time because depending on the quality of the matcha, the  flavor can be quite intense. For the topping…

    Coconut and Pineapple oatmeal

    Yogurt and oatmeal are super versatile, you can add a variety of ingredients and the flavor  will change completely! That’s why I love them! Such simple ingredients like pineapple, coconut and cinnamon will give your regular oatmeal a yummy tropical twist. Place in a saucepan over medium heat: – 1/2 cup oatmeal -1 Cup milk (I use soy milk flavored with vanilla, if using regular milk you can add a teaspoon of vanilla and sugar) -3 Tablespoons grated coconut -1 Tablespoon brown sugar -1/3 Cup pineapple cut into pieces (1 to 1 1/2 slices) Bring them to a boil and then reduce the heat to medium low, stirring occasionally until…

    Marinated cold beef

    I have been craving this beef we usually ate at my mom’s house and it’s called carne fría “cold beef”, I haven’t been able to make it before 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 need to use Round Eye Beef. This recipe is really easy but must be prepared at least 8 hours before eating it. The longer you leave the beef marinating it will more tender and yummier.  Cook the meat for about an hour in a pressure cooker with salt, pepper and garlic (follow instructions of the pressure cooker), if you do not…
