My Blog’s 1st Bday/Chicken & Mushroom Stuffed Puff Cups/Giveaway

My dear friends… It’s been quite some time since my last post.  I really missed you and I am really sorry for not blogging for some time – I just could not make myself come back.  I have been having some personal problems and could not leave them aside.  Hopefully everything will slowly settle down […]

Yes, these taco bowls were crafted by me.  Want to know my secret?  Not so hard to do, even a 2 year old can help you make these…. not considering the oven part… but yes, they are that simple. I found this recipe many many ions ago, when I was still very much of baby […]

I wanted to […]

My New Late Night Snack: Smoky & Spicy Pepitas/Pumpkin Seeds

Do you ever find yourself opening your cupboards, or refrigerator looking for something that would help you pass your “hunger” stage? Well, that seems to happen to me often and usually I try to munch on something healthy. Since I am a moody eater, I can crave either  salty, sweet, or fresh things to much […]

Baked Costa Rican Style Tilapia with Pineapples, Black Beans and Rice

You might be wondering what does a Costa Rican Tilapia taste like… I was too, when I saw this recipe posted on Food Network’s site by Ingrid Hoffmann.
