Mediterranean Egg Wrap

I am not the biggest fan of eggs and it is definitely an ingredient that I have to be in the mood for. I know that you would never think that with the number of egg recipes that I make and post, but it’s true. This is why it is so important to season the…

Homemade Seasoned Popcorn

What’s not to love about popcorn? It’s that perfect snack that you can eat at any time and anywhere. It’s also light on calories and you can eat a lot of it and maybe even get full. There are so many types of popcorn on the market these days and you can actually buy different…

Bustelo Espresso Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

I have been out of commission for a bit as I bought a new house and I have been packing and moving and then unpacking. It was hard to really cook during all of that…also, my cookbook finally was published and I have been very excited about that as well. Now that I am settling…

Dang Good Chicken Wings

So if any of you ave ever been to the wing bar at your grocery, you’ll know that many times the wings look like they have been sitting there for a while. I guess it is a good concept for those in a hurry or when you are going to the beach to buy those…

Coconut Rice

I have never been the biggest fan of rice but at times and for certain dishes, I think rice is always the best option. Most people always associate Cuban food with rice and that is true, but the rice you get at a Cuban restaurant is just that…white rice.  The important thing to know about…
