next time, scrape out thoroughly all of the egg mixture so not to waste any & you will have that lost moistness
you say you need for this recipe- even if you still need to use a little water to achieve the rest. Just stating my opinion. 718-513-4366

Just in time for la Cena de Nochebuena: Relleno Guayaco.  This is my mom's recipe for Ecuadorian stuffing, which brings back so many memories.  As usual, each family has their own way of making it, but I think my mom's recipe is the best.  Ha!  Haven't you heard that one before!  Buen Provecho!

My new summer drink.
 
Has anyone tried Michelob Ultra Light Cider?  I had the chance to taste this new drink, and it was actually pretty good!  Definitely refreshing - it is HAWT in Georgia these days.  This light cider has a hint of green apple, which makes me want to try to make some green apple margaritas using it.  Read more about it here.
I am quickly realizing I am in for the ride of my life upon moving to Atlanta. It is HOT! You may be wondering, “Well, you are from Ecuador. How could this be different?” Let me tell you – it is a dif...

The crock pot makes these types of stews so much easier to cook. Enjoy!
 
My most recent Ecuadorian stew recipe - Seco de Borrego, also known as Ecuadorian lamb stew. For this version, I used a crock pot and it turned out fantastic! Let the crock pot do its thing and walk away!
Another traditional Ecuadorian stew; this one is made with lamb meat and using a crockpot!

This was delicious and I still think about this meal...
 
Hola amigos! I had forgotten to share my most recent concoction, inspired by the ubiquitous Cuban Rabo Encendido. I named my dish Refrito-stewed Oxtail with Grits. Because I live in Georgia now, y'all and I am in love with grits! Buen provecho!
This decadent and rich refrito-stewed oxtail recipe will make you fall in love with oxtail. Cooked low and slow for a few hours, will result in meat falling off the bone and tender. Served over refrit...

This makes me sad :(

Solitario Jorge passed away over the weekend...  I remember visiting the Galapagos Islands at 12 years old and going to a park where they had a giant Galapagos (the big tortoise!)  I think it was him.

Did you ever get to see Solitario Jorge?
Lonesome George, the giant tortoise who became the face of the Galapagos Islands conservation effort, was found dead in his corral Sunday morning, according to a statement by the Galapagos National Pa...

Dulce de leche, toasted coconut and almond cake doughnuts...  Do I need to say anything else?  ;)
 
#WeekendSweets - I love alfajores (almond sandwich cookies with dulce de leche filling sprinkled with coconut flakes) and I also love cake doughnuts.  So, what happens when alfajores marry cake doughnuts?  They have Alfajores Cake Doughnut babies!  Check out my new recipe on T's Tasty Bits!  You won't be able to eat just one...
