Grandma’s Beef Stew with Potatoes and Carrots (Latin American style)

Grandma’s Beef Stew with Potatoes and Carrots (Latin American style)

I’m sure there are meals that make you remember a specific time of your life. Well, this beef stew tastes to me like all the weekends at my abuela’s (grandma’s). She used to serve this rich stew over a big bowl of fluffy white rice. It was definitely the best part of my weekend along with her quesillo. If you know me you probably know that I’m not a fan of white rice. For a Latin American girl, this is...

One sheet Spicy Pork chops with Oyster Sauce

One sheet Spicy Pork chops with Oyster Sauce

Isn’t just beautiful this pan full of goodies? Juicy pork chops in oyster sauce, surrounded by potatoes and sweet baby carrots. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. This dish is highly influenced by the Chinese restaurant close to my house. It is my version of take away food from the commodity of my oven. Another great advantage of this meal is that you will only use ONE sheet pan. Therefore cleaning after cooking will be a piece of...

Venezuelan Gastronomy has a vast amount of sweet recipes. And the classic “quesillo” is in almost every birthday party along with the birthday cake. It is a kind of flan that is mainly composed of eggs and condensed milk. The final result is a lightweight flan that has small holes and looks like a cheese covered in a rich and dark caramel. For that reason is called “quesillo”, because in spanish “queso” means cheese, so this dessert would be “small...

Easy Citrus Glazed Chicken Thighs

Easy Citrus Glazed Chicken Thighs

Chicken thighs are one of the tastiest parts of this protein. You can get a generous amount of meat covered in a crispy skin that works so well with any kind of glaze. This week I wanted something tasty but fresh —in Lisbon we are at 30ºC— and I had some frozen chicken thighs waiting for some inspiration. I decided that the best way to make a fresh meal with the chicken was with a citrus glaze. Orange, lime and...

Mango and Shrimp Salad

Mango and Shrimp Salad

  O.M.G this salad is what I needed for the summer! This is my first summer in all the meaning of the word. Living in Venezuela, especially in Caracas, is like having the most stable weather all year long (20º – 28º). That’s why Caracas is called “the eternal spring city”. I know people complain all the time about winter and the cold, but I LOVE it. It’s so fascinating to watch the city in a completely different light every...

Portuguese Custard Tarts

Portuguese Custard Tarts

You can’t say that you visited Portugal, especially Lisbon, if you never ate a “pastel de nata” or “pastel de Belém”. This dessert is part of the gastronomy legacy of Portugal. The recipe was developed by the monks of the “Monasterio dos Jerónimos” in the XVIII century. This recipe hasn’t changed a bit through the years. My earliest memory of this sweet Portuguese specialty was the first day that I stepped on Portuguese soil. My boyfriend and I left the...
