Super Easy Ricotta Pancakes

Super Easy Ricotta Pancakes

A classic of the pancakes world. Ricotta pancakes are a recurrent dream for those who love a sweet breakfast. The best thing is that they are extra fluffy and really easy to make.     For me, these pancakes are a middle ground between a regular pancake and a cheesecake. They are super moist on the inside and fluffy at the same time. You can top them  with whatever you want. Fresh fruit, maple syrup, honey, Nutella or eat them...

Hearty Mediterranean White Beans Soup

Hearty Mediterranean White Beans Soup

This white beans soup is like a big hug for your stomach. It is cozy, hearty, and 100% warmly.     This recipe has a lot of Mediterranean flavors —- you know, the chorizo and the olive oil flavor mix is like licking Spain— and magical chunkiness.

Loaded Cheesy Portobello Mushrooms

Loaded Cheesy Portobello Mushrooms

These loaded cheesy portobello mushrooms are out of this world!

Right now we are starting November and we are at 25ºC (77 F). So my cute and cozy clothes will have to wait a little bit more....

Ponche crema is the Venezuelan version of an eggnog. Creamy, spiced and with a happy touch thanks to a hint — or maybe more— of Venezuelan rum.     In case you didn’t know, Venezuela has one of the best rums in the entire world. You may think that this is the classical case of nationality proud but …. well, I will let facts speak for themselves here. For us, rum beverages are quite common because: It is cheap in...
