Cinnamon Rolls

Cinnamon Rolls

How do you like your cinnamon rolls? I like mine a bit toasted and crisp on the outside, not so sweet and with a strong cinnamon taste. Call me weird but I am not really into Cinnabon’s nor Cinnzeo’s cinnamon rolls…I just find them too...
Chicken Empanada

Chicken Empanada

Among the empanadas I’ve tried over the years, my favorite is still my mom’s baked version. As usual, I am wary of trying her chicken empanada. It’s the seasoning, I think! I don’t know how much salt and pepper to put and when I ask her, her...
