The social network that celebrates Latin food
I make these empanaditas all the time for my parties. They can be made out of beef, chicken, lamb, vegetables, even fruits. These are made with chicken.
Every time my husband and I go out to dinner and he finds empanadas on the menu, he orders them and…
You won't find any foods more colorful on the Mexican table than Christmas Eve Salad. At midnight (or earlier nowadays), the family gathers for la cena de nochebuena, or "good night" dinner. All the best dishes are presented for the festivities, including the traditional Ensalada de Nochebuena. Like a decorated tree, it comes to the table with brilliant reds accented by green and white. It's as much for display as it is for…
Ingredients for the cake:
10 tablespoons sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
15 tablespoons flour

A traditional confection found primarily in the Southern Cone (Argentina, Uruguay, and Chile) and Peru, the alfajor arrived in South America by way of the Spanish. Though hailing from the Iberian peninsula, its roots reach back to the Arab culture, which infiltrated Spain many centuries ago.
I've never made mole before. Not really. I wanted to share these recipes with you so you'd have something to work with for Turkey's Day After. It's impossible to avoid having 100 lbs of leftover turkey and you can only eat so many sandwiches.
Let me try to describe the flavors of these dishes to you and do them justice. I'll start by saying they're similar in the complexity of flavors, at once surprising and familiar. Yet, they're also in perfect contrast…

Cranberry sauce is a staple on the Thanksgiving table, but how many people are actually excited about eating it?! Most cranberry sauce recipes taste very similar and typically call for cranberries, cinnamon sticks, sugar and water, but not much else. Jazz up your recipe this year with our Cranberry Herb Sauce, full of new flavors your family will love!
This savory, yet mildly sweet, sauce is delicious on poultry, pork,…

With all the talk about turkey, I thought I'd give the big bird a respite and post a lamb recipe for you all. I'm also getting ahead on the Christmas season. While for many Hispanics pork is the meat enjoyed at Christmas dinner, in Spain, roast lamb is the most popular. (No, I'm not Spanish! Just sharing...) This recipe is courtesy of the American Lamb Board,…
I love Thanksgiving meals that offer a new twist on traditional flavors, adding even more comfort to the ultimate comfort meal. I love watching our family's holiday food traditions evolve over the years to suit our changing tastes. And I love when those changes take our Thanksgiving spread from good to sublime. Quinoa Stuffed Acorn Squash certainly fits the bill. What makes this quinoa-based stuffing so fantastic is more…Continue
I told you before I would make a pre-turkey day dinner for your benefit, but I lied. Don't get me wrong, you do benefit from this, but I didn't make this dinner just because of you. The truth is, I love turkey and would eat it year-round, so when this time of the year comes and the turkeys are plentiful... I eat and eat and, well, eat.
So, I set out to put together a Thanksgiving meal that spoke to my Latin roots while still honoring the traditional ingredients. With a little push…Continue

The fourth Thursday in November approaches and the evening is filled with family stories, anecdotes, warm hugs from loved ones who haven’t seen each other all year, memories, laughter, and of course, a delicious meal.
We’re celebrating Thanksgiving – in the U.S. perhaps the most important celebration of the year, a time when families gather to pause from the hectic pace of modern life. And as with all memorable…
Move over cranberry sauce and, H-E-L-L-O Cranberry Margarita! Cranberries always remind me that the holidays are right around the corner. One day, while making some cranberry sauce, I decided to blend the berries, add some tequila, and a splash of Grand Marnier. One sip of this festive potion and I was sold, pure heaven, or close to it. If you love cranberries like I do and let’s not forget tequila, then you’ll love this…Continue

I’ve not made it yet, but I’ve been thinking about it. I can tell you that there has been some turkey action in my kitchen already. AND I will make a pre-Thanksgiving turkey turkey. It will be loved and cajoled with lots of goodness, but it doesn’t happen until later today, soooo. Howevah (that’s a fancy Southern-drawl but) be sure to come around tomorrow, I hope…Continue

Let's talk green beans. I love me some of that creamy green bean casserole. I look forward to it every year. But here are a couple of other ways to have the green things, and to make it even better, these can be made ahead. AND, they got that sabor latino going on. As a matter of fact, they're…Continue
Holiday parties in the northern climes typically feature belly-warming tipples such as warm, fragrant mulled wine or rich, creamy eggnog; however, as I mentioned in my previous post about arrollado primavera, many here in Argentina prefer to celebrate Christmas and New Year’s with lighter food and drink given the hot and humid temperatures at this time of…Continue

Pechugas Rellenas (stuffed chicken breasts) are the empanadas of poultry. Just like the versatile pastry, every country, region, and – of course – every individual cook will have a different recipe. Chicken Kiev is a familiar version with its buttery filling, and is perhaps the predecessor to Chicken Cordon Bleu. A Turkish recipe, Ispanakli Tavuk Dolmasi, translates to spinach stuffed chicken breast while India's…Continue
This is a good replacement for the standard mashed potatoes, just giving ya some options, you see?
The Hubbz was really surprised by these. He expected them to be heavier somehow. The trick with these is to get the bananas just before you use them,…Continue
