Tropical Birthday Bundt Cake #BundtBakers

I’m so happy to back blogging with all of you, is being a while and I miss sharing with you what has happened in my kitchen.
But today I want to share a delicious cake that is not only great to eat as is, but a fabulous option to celebrated any birthday.

To tell you a little bit, this bundt cake is actually a version of the cake that I make for my husband every year, he doesn’t like frosting or anything on his cake and I always make him a simple bundt but full with flavor.

I must say that this is the version the I enjoy the most, and not only me but my girls are a big fan of it. You would love it too and if you can just add some light frosting or whipped cream and you will be making the most decadent and delicious bundt cake ever.

Maizena Tamal #SundaySupper

Maizena Tamal #SundaySupper

 

I want to start by saying that my father was a wonderful person and every time I think about him tears come out, I miss him so much and not only on father’s day but every day.

Ok, no more tears let’s talk about happy memories and the wonderful time we spend together. This maizena tamal was one of his favorites for afternoon coffee and I remember my grandmother making it all the time, it took me a while to master her recipe but I finally got it right.

I’m so happy to be able to make it for my husband and my daughters for this father’s day and to share it with my friends. And let me tell you a little bit about this tamal; in Costa Rica we have different kinds of tamles, we make the traditional with masa harina and the sweet kind made in this case with corn starch, yes as you can see this tamal is completely gluten-free.

One of the things we love about it is to make it and serve with a hot cup of coffee in the morning or the afternoon and is delicious at room temperature or cold. This is definitely one of my favorites and I’m so happy to be able to share it with all of you for this special day.

Lemon and Cream Cookies #CreativeCookieExchange

Lemon and Cream Cookies #CreativeCookieExchange

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.

Enjoy.

Welcome to another round of delicious and super creative bundt, this month our amazing host Christiane from The Mom Chef, give us a super amazing challenge, she put us to bake some tropical inspired bundt.

Think about all the delicious tropical fruits out there like, mango, coconut, lime, passion fruit, you name it; just think about going to the beach with your tropical drink a hat and your are good to go. I love this ideas because my favorite fruits to bake are tropical fruits, you can make a lot of great combination with them and the result will be amazing.

I this occasion, I bake for you a delicious, and very different pineapple bunt with coconut, very classic combination but different all the way. I use only brown sugar to give it a little caramel after taste and you know how I love a good coconut flavor in my dessert and cakes, so I bought a non sweet shredded coconut, to give it a stronger flavor.

Of course like all my recipes, this bundt is very easy to make and I’m sure you have all the ingredients on hand, so don’t worry and lest get started.

Peanut Butter Sour Cream Bundt Cake #BundtBakers

Peanut Butter Sour Cream Bundt Cake #BundtBakers

Ok, so this month we have the challenge to create a recipe inspired by weir but delicious ingredients in a bundt cake, and this challenge was a little difficult for me, because I’m use to a familiar flavor combinations and it was a little hard to think on an interesting but delicious combinations to make.

I first took a look in all the cakes I made this past years and I did not find any peanut butter there, so I came out with this very interesting combo of peanut butter and sour cream. Because I love so much the flavor of the both together whenever I make a dressing.

I want to say thanks to June from How to Philosophize with Cake  for giving us this amazing challenge.

Now a huge question for all of you, What is your favorite weir combination on a cake? Just leave me a comment with your answer..

Holiday Bread #HostingHacks #Ad CollectiveBias

This time of the year is one I enjoy the most and also the most busy one, with all the baking, cooking and cleaning I have to do specially this year we have some family coming, my house gets a little crazy, but it is a good crazy to have.

This year I want to be extra prepared and went to Costco to get some of my must have essentials specially when I’m the one hosting. I’m very exited to have my family, and I still have so much to do, and buying essential products I need gives me more confidence and they are great to have on hand.

products costco #hostinhacks

My motto is always to be prepared. I have my favorite products of course like Bounty to help me with cleaning. Charmin is a great item for my guest bathroom. Febreze Air Effects for any areas of your house not only the restroom. I use Febreze in my garage too, nobody likes smelly areas. But my two must haves, the two that I can’t survive without are Tide Pods and Cascade Action Pacs.

products costco #hostinghacks 3

I need to be on top of my laundry and my dishes all the time. I can only say, go to Costco and get ready, because the holidays are great but you need to also enjoy every moment of it. When you have to clean a lot of dishes just like me, because I cook a lot, or keep up with the laundry to make it all nice and comfortable for my family, I definitely need great products on hand. Shopping at Costco also saves me time and the products last longer, and I sure love it because I don’t have to worry and run to the store at the last-minute.

products costco #hostinghacks 2

I also love to make a little bread or cookies for that extra touch that is always so important to tell your guests that you been thinking about them and just want to make them happy all the time.This bread is a little bit like a biscuit, the difference is that it has some sweet and savory flavor that I love and I’m sure my family will too.
