Brazilian Style Carrot Muffins

My mama would be sooooo proud of me right now.  I’ve found a way to ingest carrots…and I like it.

I grew up hating carrots.  Raw, cooked, juiced…you name it, I hated it.  If I saw them on my plate mixed with other foods, I would pick them out. When my mom cooked a dish with carrots, she would make a non-carrot version for me.

I decided to make a Brazilian style carrot cake for work the other day, where the carrots are blended with the w…

Lemon Mousse Shortcake in a Jar

If I was to describe a perfect marriage, it would be between the mousse and the cake.  What could possible bring such an amazing combination to a divorce?  Maybe that dude ice cream, but we’ll get to his story later.

I love mousse and I love cake so I decided to make a few in a jar because it is easy to control how much I can devour, lol. I often make this recipe with passion fruit, however, hard to find it around these parts.   So, my tangy-s…

Mango WhiskyRita

I must certainly have a cocktail before I eat in order to open up my appetite and after I eat, no more drinking, unless is water. lol.  I’ve never really been a fan of dark spirits (pun intended), I am more of a vodka-kinda-girl, however, my boo enjoys the brown things in life, so as I was preparing lunch, which is usually the best time to sip, I decide to create a concoction from whisky to see if he would  like.  Thus was born the Mango Whiskyri…

GF One Leche Apple Cake

A friend once asked me: “what makes you happy?” I replied with a huge grim: cake, cake, cake! (In my Rihanna’s voice) And if you make it wet and sticky, I will worship it! Well, not to that extreme, but that is how much I truly love cakes.

I recently began experimenting with a few cake flavors, which you will see throughout the site, utilizing Pamela’s Gluten Free Baking and Pancake mix, which I have come to adore. My first experiment was with…

Thai Coconut Curry Ginger Shrimp

Asian food has to be by far one of my favorites , losing its first place rank to Brazilian food.  What can I say, can’t never let go of my first love.

My first experience with Asian cuisine was at the age of 14 when I few of my mom’s friends took us out for dim sum to celebrate a birthday. Since I had never had chinese food before, they ordered a roundtable of different dishes so that we can try a variety and make sure they didn’t have to make…

Black Bean Veggie Burger

A few years ago, by doctor’s order, I had gone straight vegan.  Not really knowing what was the cause of my high cholesterol, they decided that it was the best way to fix the issue.  However, I later discovered that it was my PCOS that was causing the spike and not necessarily the foods I was eating.

I had to become extremely creative with my food and not lose my sense of normality .  I began to dabble in meat alternatives and see what I could…

Arizona Taco Festival

“Why didn’t I purchase tickets online?” The first words uttered out of my mouth when I arrived at the Arizona Taco Festival.  I was so close to turning around and going for burgers and beer somewhere after seeing that loooooooong line in the hot sun!   After two hours in line convinced by my one of friends, I was able to experience the most delicious tacos in the whole state of Arizona.

I am from the east coast and I grew up eating that store-…
