crostini + empanada .001

A few weeks back, we made these two appetizers for a Super Bowl party that we attended, along with the Guava Mozzarella Empanadas I shared a few weeks ago.  I wanted to make something Puerto Rican, but with a twist (insert brainstorming sessions here).  The empanadas were an easy addition to the menu, having already made a sweet version, adding a savory option felt appropriate. We went with a traditional picadillo filling, but with ground turkey instead of beef. Now… Read more »

In my opinion, ”Taco Tuesday’s” should be mandatory!  Street tacos, chicken tacos, carne asada tacos, fish tacos with picked cabbage, the list goes on, and I love them all, but then you add pumpkin into the mix and I start doing my happy dance.  Now, I know what you’re thinking… pumpkin tacos? ehh, really?  But, hear me out… think of the pumpkin as a sauce of sorts, not sweet, but savory, mixed with sautéed chicken breast and jalapeños, creating an amazingly delicious… Read more »
