Big Batch Coquito Recipe!

December 2, 2020

Puerto Rican coquito has become a holiday staple in Miami, FL over the last few years. It’s even developed a bit of a seasonal business boom with several people selling their homemade versions during the holidays. Recently, I was getting that itch for some coquito and I started asking around what the price for a 750ml bottle of it cost. The going price ranged from $20-$35. I thought about it and I figured it’s probably cheaper to make and it would make for a good Christmas present for friends. 

I researched dozens of recipes, tested a few and this is what I came up with. It’s a big batch that makes about a gallon so you’ll have enough to share or to hoard for yourself. 

Pretzel Pizza Nacho Recipe!

June 1, 2020

This blog post was sponsored by SUPERPRETZEL.

I’ve teamed up with the amazing folks over at SUPERPRETZEL to create a recipe featuring their amazing new cheese stuffed soft pretzel bites. They come in three different varieties: pub cheese, mozzarella and pepper jack. For this recipe, I decided to use one package of mozzarella  stuffed pretzel bites and one package of pepper jack. If you’re not a fan of jalapeƱo no feel free to use two packages of mozzarella soft pretzel bites. 

Cuban Carne Con Papa Meets Beef Bourguignon Recipe

May 1, 2020

This recipe is an amalgamation of Cuban Carne con Papa and Julia Child's Beef Bourguinon. I made Julia's Child's recipe to a T years ago and my mom rolled her eyes saying, "Eso es carne con papa, sin papa."  I felt defeated but there was something to her statement that resonated with me. The recipes are similar, although beef bourguignon is a bit more involved. I set out to find a my own version and marry the two dishes some how. This is what I came up with.

I'm a sucker for a good tiramisu. It's so many of my favorite things rolled into one perfect dessert. I started tinkering around with a recipe and switched out the coffee used in the recipe for sweetened cuban espresso. I loved it and decided to share the recipe here.

Low Carb Keto Artichoke Spinach Dip

March 23, 2020

I hate HATE chunky Artichoke Spinach dip. I hate having strings of spinach getting stuck in my teeth. So when I started playing around with this recipe, I knew it would be a creamy dip, no giant chunks over here. Ever since my days in the early 2000's of slumming it at Chili's for their 2 for 1 drink specials, I've been obsessed with Artichoke Spinach dip.

Low Carb Keto Chicken Parmesan

When I was really into the Keto diet, this recipe was a staple in my house. I'm not longer on a strict diet, but I still LOVE this version of chicken parmesan. It's basically parmesan cheese crusted chicken breast, what's not to love?
