Pantry Chocolate Pie Recipe

Pantry Chocolate Pie Recipe

I don’t make pie crust dough that often, which is why lately I have been wanting the practice. Practice makes perfect! However, I didn’t have enough of one fruit to make a fruit pie and my husband doesn’t like cooked fruit. So I ended up mixing things that I found in the pantry and lordy-lord-lord, […] more…
Commander’s Palace New Orleans

Commander’s Palace New Orleans

I’m so in love with Commander’s Palace in New Orleans, LA. Around since the late 1800’s, Commander’s Palace is a New Orleans landmark and deservedly so.

Quenepas AKA Spanish Lime

Quenepas AKA Spanish Lime

Ever have a quenepa or Spanish lime before? They remind me of my childhood. From when I was 3-7, I grew up in a Puerto Rican neighborhood where we loved our rice and beans, roasted chicken, plantains and of course, quenepas.

La Bella Ferrara NYC

La Bella Ferrara NYC

La Bella Ferrara is my favorite spot in Little Italy to pick up Italian Pastries. It’s a small spot and they no longer have a café area to sit in, but it is definitely worth stopping in to get desserts to snack on or bring home. Italian sandwich cookies (no clue what the real name […] more…
