Churros, a delicious Spanish snack made with the simplest of ingredients…. flour, water, oil and sugar!

I made churros for the first time one afternoon when friends popped in and I had nothing else but flour […]

Vanilla Cupcakes with White Mousse and Candied Strawberries

Posted on October 20, 2010 by in baked goods

Cupcakes are not my thing! I marvel at all the mommies at school who can whip up a batch in no time. It’s not that I detest baking them, I think my standards are just too high. For me a cupcake must be moist yet light, soft but not falling apart. Just the other day […]

Smoked Mackerel Salad

This Smoked Mackerel Salad hit the spot tonight. No cooking in my kitchen today. We all loved this Smoked Mackerel Salad, the salty fish, the crisp lettuce, creamy avocado and the refreshing summer fruits. All I added was a yogurt dressing and a few crispy rolls and voila, dinner was served. Mackerel is somewhat underrated, […]
