The social network that celebrates Latin food
Medianoche literally means midnight in Spanish and that is the name…Continue
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…

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

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
Well, you know what they say. That statement is definitely accurate when it refers to plantains. Yes, you heard me right. Plantains. More specifically, ripe plantains. The darker the skin on the plantain, the sweeter it will be.
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
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

Sweet potatoes are not my favorite. There's something about the mildly sweet taste made into super-sweet, cinnamony side that just doesn't do it for me. But since you guys wanted sweet potatoes and because they're supposed to be so good for us, I've been thinking about how to 'like' them. I'm here…Continue
Panamá, being the proverbial melting pot, has an incredibly abundant Chinese presence. You can't walk more than a few yards before stumbling into a Chinese restaurant or a corner tienda, a little neighborhood store where you can buy everything from fresh bread…Continue
I don't have much of a sweet tooth, which is unusual when you consider desserts are my family's business. Maybe it's because I could smell the scent of baked goods wafting through the house almost every day of my life since age 12 or so. Or maybe I just didn't get that gene, I don't know. Anyway, it's…Continue
