Pecan Butter Cookies #CreativeCookieExchange

pecan-butter-cookies-creativecookieexchange

And we are back, yes we are and this time we have the most delicious and sweet cookies inspired by all things Autumn. Yes, the flavors and smells of the most amazing season of the year.

For you today I made a different and easier way to make your cookies fo this season. Perfectly bake and flavor with warm cinnamon and crunchy pecans. These cookies are the best options when you need to make a bunch for a party or a gathering with friends.

I bake the hold batch of cookies on a single cookie sheet, to make it easier and fast for me and for you, I was actually in a little hurry and I need to experiment a little with my cookies, you know sometimes you have to. But the end result is very delicious, just keep in mind that you must cut the cookies when hot, otherwise, it can be too difficult.

One of the best things about fall–in addition to sweaters and football–is all of the delightful seasonal themes that come to mind for baking. Pumpkin, apples, late summer and early fall harvest, Halloween, Thanksgiving…. They are all fun and delicious to play around with, so check out what we have for you this month!

You can also use us as a great resource for cookie recipes. Be sure to check out our Pinterest Board and our monthly posts (you can find all of them here at The Spiced Life). You will be able to find them the first Tuesday after the 15th of each month!

Foodie Extravaganza is a monthly food fest, where a group of bloggers all create and share a recipe around one of the monthly food ‘holidays’ as detailed in The Nibble. This month Kathleen from Fearlessly Creative Mammas is hosting and since chocolate day is October 28th, Chocolate is our theme. There are actually two other days that incorporate chocolate in October, the 14th is Chocolate Covered Insect Day and the 18th is Chocolate Cupcake day. We didn’t want to get to specific though, so we will just say chocolate.

We continue celebrating this special month with more and more delicious latino inspired recipes. And if you don’t know or you are not sure what is the big celebration, is ok, we are celebration Hispanic Heritage month.

Ok, first let me tell you that we eat lots and lots of bread and cakes, not only on special occasions but we love to eat it during breakfast and with coffee in the afternoon better call Merienda time. Yes, traditionally we have a special time in the day we use to spend time with our friends and family.

letsmerienda-honey-maid-cake

 

Our Merienda always includes a bread or cake and I use as inspiration this great recipe  Honey Maid Dulce de Leche Peanut Butter Topper, change some ingredients and trying a different approach, you know how we as latinos love to eat a god piece of cake at any hour of the day.

Don’t worry this is a very simple and easy recipe and you will find it very useful, especially when it comes to feeding a crowd. And let me tell you my family was always in my house on time for Merienda and I never send anybody hungry bad to any shore they had for the rest of the afternoon.

letsmerienda-honey-maid-cookies

And with the help of Nabisco products you are going to be so inspired to create new recipes.Nabisco is providing a variety of fun and delicious Latino-inspired recipes that are just right to treat the family during merienda.
These recipes are easy-to-make and feature the family’s Nabisco favorites: Oreo, Chips Ahoy!, RITZ Crackers and Honey Maid. These recipes are a Nabisco spin on traditional favorites.

Lemony Chicken Wings #SundaySupper

Lemony Chicken Wings #SundaySupper

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.

Garden Rice #SundaySupper

Garden Rice #SundaySupper

One of the things the I love the most during summer time is that we can find lots of fresh veggies and fruits, and I love to make also lots of easy recipes with all these fresh vegetables.
I know what area you thinking, I live in California and most of the time we can find fresh fruit and veggies, and you are right but summer has the most delicious products and this is a great occasion to make the most out of them.

And this recipe has some of the products I use the most during this time, carrots and celery are delicious complements for the rice and it give it that fresh test and a beautiful color.

I love to use parboil rice, this rice is very easy to make and the consistency is very loose, the grain is strong so it keeps a nice shape no matter what you add to it.

Love this types of side dishes, and this rice is a great complement to a delicious piece of pork or beef. Hope you enjoy it.
