This month we want to inspire you with some spring flavors. Ok, let me be honest, here in San Diego, doesn’t look like spring, is gloomy and cold, but what I do when the weather is a little different is too simple, I bake cookies, and lucky for me this month the #CreativeCookieExchange theme is all about spring.
I love how the smell and flavors bring the best of the season and how incredible delicious everything tastes. It is just perfect in so many ways. My favorite flavors in spring are a lemon, and orange, so fresh and so bright, you can make anything with this two flavors and it will taste just perfect.
And you can’t believe what happened to me today I totally forgot that the cookies were baking and Oh No! a hold batch of cookies is burn, but luckily for me, I save the rest from disaster. The bad news is that I can’t send cookies to my friends.
It is ok, another day I will send more than enough. So here you go, a delicious and different cookie recipe for you collection.
Spring is here! And with it loads of great flavors for baking!

The things I remember the most from El Dia Del Niño (Children’s Day) are all the delicious sweets and desserts my family used to give us. And of course as a kid this is a big deal, we were so excited and anxious to get those yummy treats. As a custom in the Latino community April 30 is the day the when we all come together to celebrated this special day or if you don’t know here is the second Sunday in June.
And why not make it huge and celebrate our adorable kids, after all, we have our own day too. This year I made a promise to my kids the I will be doing a special treat for them and I have to keep my promises. Luckily I can have some help, you know because now is very different and I want it to make a delicious and different dessert but with my latin twist.
This bite will be a great option for my girls Merienda when they are back from school, and if you don’t know Merienda is the same as an American snack, the difference is that we as a custom eat it in the afternoon at 3 o’clock and in my country we use this time to spend it with the family and Nabisco is providing a variety of fun and delicious Latino-inspired recipes that are just right to treat the family for Día del niño. Yum!
Since my girls love ice cream and cookies I check the Nabisco site to help me with some ideas, and I’m happy to say I find exactly what I need it, a delicious Honey Maid Frozen Lime Bars, wow! what a great recipe, and I just added my latin touch, some strawberry gelatin in honor of my Abuelita, she used to make something similar and this dessert was perfect make this addition.
I love how food can bring all the good memories and make something so simple in the best heritage you can give to your kids. If you need more inspiration don’t forget to check out the Nabisco Dia Del Niño Ideasand here’s a coupon for you too Nabisco Coupon.

We are today super inspired baking delicious cookies in honor of our moms, and for me is a pleasure to bake cookies for my Mami. My Mom is not a person that love sweets or things pack in chocolate, so for that reason, I made her favorite cookies, which are super delicious and so, so, easy to make.
She loves cookies with some kind of savory flavor and in this case my I prepare for her and well everybody in the family my famous Oats and Nuts cookies.
I love them with some cool milk or cold chocolate milk. Yum! what a great combination, Don’t you think? I’m sure you will enjoy these cookies too.
Don’t forget to let me know what’s your favorite cookie.

Yuca or Casava is very popular in my native country, we make lots of different meals and sweets with it and this fritters are one of the most popular. We absolutely love them and they are very simple to make, the best part of this dish is that you can make tons of the fritters with 2 pounds.
Perfect for picnics or parties, and even just because you want to chance your dinner that day. This is my inspiration for todays #SundaySupper; I want it to share with you a different finger food, a vegetarian option and of course a delicious dish.
We enjoy the fritters with a pink or a tomato sauce, my personal favorite is this tomato sauce the am also sharing the recipe with you, it make the meal complete and give it an extra flavor.
You can also make a simple green salad, they are perfect with it or stuffed some lettuce and make a very creative hamburger.. Yum! I love how one dish change can completely if we just add different sides.
So let me know what you think and don’t worry, I’m sure your kids will love this fritters too.

For the Yuca:
Place the yuca in enough water and let it cook until soft. Once ready remove the fiber that has in the center. Place in a stand mixer, and mix to cool a little. Add the egg yolks, cheese and butter and mix to combine.
While the Yuca is cooking, make the sauce. In a pot heat to medium low heat, add oil, onion, garlic and tomatoes, cook until tomato is soft, add the tomato sauce, salt, pepper, cilantro and ketchup, cover and cook for 5 minutes.
Heat up enough oil to fry the fritters. Know Grab about 2 tablespoons of the yuca dough, make a tortilla shape and add a teaspoon of the cheese close and cover with egg white and immediately in breadcrumbs, place in a plate and make the rest. Fry for 3 minutes or until golden brown.
Serve warm with some sauce on top.
For sure you will see how different this recipe is as soon you read all the ingredients, and that is the reason why I name my fudge like that. I love to change the recipes once in a while and this recipe in particular is a mix of a classic american with a touch of Costa Rica.
I love to make it for my family and I want it to share it with my friend Michele Gerhold from Alwayz Bakin’and I hope she love them too.
Make sure to send an email to her if you like to be part of the #TheLeftoversClub
In a heavy bottom pot heat to medium low heat, add butter and peanuts, let the butter melt completely and add the condensed milk.
Mix until well combine.
Add the powder milk and immediately mix well until the fudge comes together and doesn't stick to the border of the pot any more.
Place the fudge over some parchment paper, spread out, and let it cool. Cut in pieces once is completely cool
This is my first time in months that I’m been able to post in this amazing party, and what a better way to do it than making a delicious coffee cake. This month we are celebrating coffee cake, and you know we have to have it at least once a week or maybe once a day.
I love coffee cakes and I made a different combination and different flavors but nothing beat the classic, and for me the simple the better. This coffee cake is just a mouth full of deliciousness in one bite and is super easy to make.
Many people think that coffee cake is a cake with a coffee base and it is really funny that my daughter want it a piece and ask me “does this cake has coffee? Well not it doesn’t and I think that it is name like that because it is usually eating with coffee and you know it was a great way to make people come and enjoy a cup of coffee with a delicious cake.
I want to say thank you to Lauren Mitchell from From Gate to Plate for bringing us a great party theme.
What is your favorite coffee cake? Tell I want to know…
