A new post from T's Tasty Bits! Enjoy! I love that life has all kinds of moments: happy, sad, angry, quiet, loud, makes sense, makes no sense, makes you go blank, makes you go a thousand miles an hour… This sweet plantain ravioli with chorizo chipotle sauce reminds me of similar fullness in life:
Passion fruit and dulce de leche cheesecake
A new post from T's Tasty Bits! Enjoy! Cheesecake. It is my weakness. I vividly remember my first cheesecake. I actually made it after watching my mentor on her TV show – Dia a Dia con Maria Rosa. She made a basic cheesecake, topped with fruits. I recall having problems unmolding it because I

Relleno Guayaco: My mom’s sweet and savory stuffing
I have to confess: when I was a little girl, I was not a fan of my mom’s relleno. In full disclosure, I was a picky eater, and there was something about raisins and anything related to raisins I despised. Since this stuffing had raisins, prunes, walnuts and all these “things”, I avoided relleno
Roasted Butternut Squash and Tomatillo Soup
I’ve been in a bit of soup kick lately, in spite of the fact we’ve had a pretty mild winter. Now that I am in Atlanta, winters are basically non-existent. I miss the snow. Sometimes. Then, I remember the amount of times we were snowed in and couldn’t go anywhere… The days when the skies were grey,
Roasted Sweet Potato and Green Apple Soup
Continuing my love affair with soups these days, here is another one: roasted sweet potato and green apple soup. Before Pinterest ever existed, I tore off pages from my favorite magazines that had stuff I was interested in: decor, outfits, makeup, and of course, recipes. This one is from a pile
Arroz con Leche – Rice Pudding
Arroz con leche, me quiero casar, Con una señorita de San Nicolás, Que sepa coser, que sepa bordar, Que sepa abrir la puerta para ir a jugar. If you lived in Ecuador – or in any Latin American country as a child, you most likely remember singing this tune in the playground with your friends. This
