This is one of my favorite pieces of bread to make for breakfast the next day and they are so easy and so full of flavor. They are great for an easy low-key Sunday brunch or if you are having a family get together they are the perfect complement to any plate. I make mine with Real California Milk Cheese and this gives me the security that I’m using a good quality cheese.
Now let me tell you that by buying Real California Milk products you have to make sure to look for the Real California Seal, especially because we are working hard to help does in need right now. Spread some California love to families in need affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Snap a pic of the Real California Milk Seal, share it using #SealsForGood, and @RealCaliforniaMilk will donate $5 to the Great American Milk Drive (up to $20k) to help families in Texas and Florida. No purchase necessary. Post now ‘til 12/31.
This is a great way to help those that need us so much right now, and this recipe is a great excuse to get you a push to start, not only because we all need a delicious breakfast but also they are so easy to make that will only take you no more than 45 minutes.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the yeast and the warm water, let it rest for 5 minutes, then on low speed add honey, eggs, and butter, still, on low speed add salt and the flour 1 cup ad the time until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
Once ready, place the dough in a lightly flour surface, roll out to form a rectangle, then start with the filling, first spread the pumpkin puree and after that sprinkle the cinnamon, brown sugar and the pecans. Roll in the dough and cut in 1" pieces, about 30 small pieces or 22 medium pieces, that is up to you. Place in a grease baking dish. Cover with a towel and let it rise for 20 minutes in a warm place.

Football season is here and I can’t wait. It is a great time to share delicious appetizer and finger food ideas and share them with my friends on Sundays, you know, Sunday football is the best.
So today I bring to you my version of two things I love, chicken and lime or lemon if you want, and I made a deliciously lemony chicken wings, my version of the best of the end of summer with the start of the perfect finger food.
And you know that wings are the favorite finger food at any sports match especially football, but for me, a delicious wing has to be crispy and full of flavor, you may thing that lime flavor is difficult to keep but marinating them is the secret to a great flavor. They are perfect, with some fries and a side of ranch dressing, my favorite.
So let’s check it up a little bit and go ahead make this delicious and different wings for your next football party.

Lemony Chicken Wings #SundaySupper
Your favorite wings from now on, so crispy and with a fabulous lime flavor.
You can say that a good breakfast has some pancakes or waffles in it, but for me, a good and perfect breakfast has a delicious scone. Must of the time when I feel like eating something different I like to make scones.
They are so easy and fast to make, and I love the I can combine different flavors and end up with a delicious result. My family loves the blueberry and lemon, but my all time favorite are this bell peppers and cheese.
Definitely, they are a must to make for your family and enjoy at any time of the day, because a good scone is always good with coffee, tea or any hot drink you like.
#BreadBakers is a group of bread loving bakers who get together once a month to bake bread with a common ingredient or theme. Follow our Pinterest board right here. Links are also updated each month on this home page.
We take turns hosting each month and choosing the theme/ingredient.
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
Mix flour, salt and baking powder, add the butter and use a pastry cutter to cut the butter into the dry ingredients until it looks like coarse crumbs. Add cheese, peppers and cilantro, mix with your hands just to combine.
Add the buttermilk in 3 additions and mix until it comes together as a hold.
For a square and cut the dough in 15 pieces.
Tranfer them to a baking sheet and bake.
Once ready place them on a cooling rack, to cool compeltely.
This month for the #TheLeftoversClub I want it to send and make something different and change the theme a little, no cookies this month, so for my friend Faye Rodriguez I make delicious and super easy Orange Fudge.
Ok, this fudge is very different to any others you have tried, and is very traditional in my country, yes in Costa Rica we make all different kinds of fudge and is call Cajetas. We have so many different flavors like, coconut, peanuts, carrots, etc. But this orange fudge is so fresh and delicious, the flavor of the orange zest cuts the sweets of the sugar and you end up with the perfect dessert after a good lunch or dinner.
I just hope she likes it as much as we love it. And let me know how many pieces of this fudge will you eat.

Easy Orange Fudge #TheLeftoversClub
So different and delicious, this fudge will be a must at your dessert table this summer.
Place sugar, water, and orange zest in a pot on medium-low heat and cook until sugar is dissolved, let if boiled for 5 minutes.
Add butter, vanilla extract and the powder mix constanly on low heat for 15 minutes or until the mixture has a very thick texture.
Grease a large piece of waxed paper and place the mixture, let cool for 30 minutes, grease your hands with butter and form the balls. Place them in paper cups and ready to enjoy. Let cool completely before eating.
Ok, let me start by saying that I love donuts! Thank you, I needed that, I’m so happy to participate this month in the donut event for #FoodieExtravaganza and I’m sure you are too.
This is a great theme to have especially this month for me living in Southen California, the weather has been wonderful not too hot and perfect for baking, wich makes me so happy because I love to bake during the summer time. I know most of the donuts are fried but some people love to bake them and let me tell you those donuts are pretty delicious too.
Now let me talk about my donuts, I know that the title said orange glace, but, I decide also to present them in a different way and add the orange zest to the dough, this addition will make the donuts tastier and with a delicious citrus flavor. I’m sure you will love the flavor and this is a great opportunity to have some fun in the kitchen with your kids and let them decorate and cover the donuts and those little fingers in gooey goodies.
July has arrived and that means it’s time for another #FoodieExtravaganza! Each month we take turns hosting and selecting a foodie holiday associated with that month. Somehow in all the planning July was overlooked so in a mad dash in the second half of June, Lauren of From Gate to Plate told us to celebrate the doughnut. If anyone is keeping score, National Doughnut Day is actually the first Friday in June, but none of us are complaining to be celebrating one of America’s favorite breakfast treats today. July is National Culinary Arts month so let’s just go with that. Also in July: Fried Chicken Day (today, the 6th), Blueberry Muffin Day (the 11th), and Junk Food Day (the 21st).
Posting day is always the first Wednesday of each month. If you are a blogger and would like to join our group and blog along with us, come join our Facebook page Foodie Extravaganza. We would love to have you! If you’re a spectator looking for delicious tidbits check out our Foodie Extravaganza Pinterest Board! Looking for our previous parties? Check them out HERE.

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.

In Costa Rica we celebrate Pascua with our family and friends and sometimes we just take our time to relax and enjoy the weather. Normally during this time of the year is very hot over there, so you will see a lot of families enjoying the beach during that time.
For those that don’t go to the beach, we stay at home enjoying all the celebrations and having some rest and family time. We also gather to enjoy a lot of food and delicious desserts. Yum! as I start thinking about dessert it came to my mind a bizcocho de dulce de leche that my grandmother used to make, and this is a secret please don’t tell anybody but, this was a “cake” with wherever we had on the pantry, one thing that my grandma was good at was to created delicious dessert using her imagination.
This bizcocho or sponge was our official Holy week cake, it was perfect, not to sweet and great because like I said before it is very hot during this time. We made it as a family and we were all involve in it, I was the official mixer, yep my grandma made me mix with a wooden spoon, she said no hay nada como una cuchara de madera.
Our Pascua or Holy week was the best I remember, and now I want my girls to get into this roots, that is why we went to Walmart to buy some delicious MARS candy specially:
M&M’s® Easter Sundae flavor
M&M’s® varieties that have Easter colors
DOVE® Chocolate Eggs
Oh wait I have sometime amazing check out the Social Hub for a Special Bundle Offer….Go hurry!
I know you are like. What? Well, you need to add some candy to the sponge, I personally love the flavor of the M&M’s® Easter Sundae wow it is delicious, you can find this flavor only at Walmart for limited time. So like I said we went and bought all the ingredients then bake and chill the most delicious dessert you will ever put in your mouth, yes it is amazing!
