Roasted Sweet Peppers and Beans Breakfast Skillet

Roasted Sweet Peppers and Beans Breakfast Skillet

Breakfast is by far my favorite meal of the day. It just gets me in the right mood for the hundred of things that I probably have to do. So, I’m in love right now with this roasted sweet peppers and beans breakfast skillet.     It has powerful flavors like the bratwurst sausage and the roasted sweet peppers. But at the same time cozy ingredients like the butter beans and the runny eggs. It’s just lovely. I’ve made breakfast...

Pork Belly Chicharrón

Pork Belly Chicharrón

Pork belly chicharron is not meant to be beautiful. It’s plain and simply tasty. Greasy, artery blocker and decadent.     In Venezuela, this is a small town food. It is common in the rural areas. This is the cowboy’s snack. A bite of pork belly chicharrón with a splash of lime juice and kosher salt. The process is quite simple and straightforward —I guess you can not imagine a cowboy doing something slightly complicated in the kitchen. You will...

Venezuelan Tres Leches Cake

Venezuelan Tres Leches Cake

A truly Venezuelan tres leches cake is something that changes your life. I’m not even exaggerating with this. To say that this spongy cake sogged in the most delicious milk cream is “good” is a major understatement.     You can tell that I’m beyond excited to show you this family recipe. My mom is well-known for her tres leches. It’s something that defines her. My friends always wanted to come to my home the day my mom was making...

Easy Creamy Broccoli Casserole

Easy Creamy Broccoli Casserole

Well, today is one of those days. Days when I’m not feeling in the cooking mood. They are few, but when they hit, they hit hard. Luckily this creamy broccoli casserole saved the day.     Days like this I usually eat outside. One eating outside (or maybe twice) a week won’t destroy my monthly budget. But add to the mix a rainy day and there’s nothing in the world that would make me go outside. With this depressing panorama,...

Portuguese Cod Croquettes

Portuguese Cod Croquettes

Let’s talk about the obsession of Portuguese people for codfish. I’m not talking about an occasional weekly meal with cod, oh no. They have a complete section in the supermarket dedicated to cod. Frozen, salted, fresh, cod croquettes, cod salad, cod shampoo, cod everything (and let’s not mention the smell, really stingy). They love this fish beyond any measure.     Codfish and I .. well not the best relationship that you may think of a girl living in codland...

Venezuelan Chicha (Rice Drink)

Venezuelan Chicha (Rice Drink)

One of the street foods and drinks that I miss the most about Venezuela has to be the “chicha”. A Venezuelan chicha is a super thick drink made with rice and milk. It is dense and if you add a lot of ice you get a refreshing and fulfilling drink that tastes like heaven.     Chicha is a classic South American drink that you can find in a lot of countries and all of them have a different interpretation....

Oven Baked Honey and Sriracha Pork Ribs

Oven Baked Honey and Sriracha Pork Ribs

Delicious finger licking oven-baked honey and sriracha pork ribs. Every piece of tender meat releases so easily from the bone. This recipe gives me the perfect pork ribs every time.   These pork ribs are the perfect addition to a game night or a Stranger Things marathon (2 seasons on Netflix and still haven’t watch it, shame on me). The sauce of these ribs is pure gold. It’s a balanced mix of sweet and spicy flavor. The honey allows the...

Venezuelan Rice Pudding “Arroz con Leche”

Venezuelan Rice Pudding “Arroz con Leche”

Rice pudding is a classic South American dessert that has its origins in Spain and came to us from the colony time. But every country has it owns version of this classic. Today, I’ll show you a truly Venezuelan rice pudding.     For me, food is way much more than a pretty picture an a brief moment of tasting yummy stuff. For me, food is a story of love. Really, love? — that sound like a cheesy soap opera...

Gotham Steel Pan Vs Red Copper Pan: Which Should You Buy?

Gotham Steel Pan Vs Red Copper Pan: Which Should You Buy?

Honestly, neither. While both the and the are perfectly serviceable pieces of cookware, they’re wholly unremarkable and rather lackluster given their prices. They’re not particularly durable, food sticks easily to them, and they aren’t even the cheapest ceramic non-stick frying pans in their respective sizes. You can get a much more robust pan with a better ceramic non-stick coating for about the same price from many brands.   But What About The Advertisements? Both the and the are As-Seen-On-TV products....
