Apple Streusel / Streusel de Manzana

Versión en Español

I love streusels and apple streusel is my favorite.

I came across a recipe for it in an unusual place. It is a book that I have in Spanish and it is called “Delicias al horno” (Baked Delights? You might say?). And it wasn´t until now that I realized it doesn´t mention the authors for any of the recipes!

Well, I have adjusted it for my taste and re-written it in a more logical sense (that´s my engineering side coming out). Continue reading

Scones

 Versión en Español

These scones are not just easy and quick to prepare, they are also crumbly and soft on the inside and taste heavenly with your favorite jam. An English treat at your fingertips. Ready for teatime?

Those who have followed me for a while may recall that I lived in England for a few years. During that time I learned to appreciate and take pleasure in its cuisine and I have to confess that I do miss it (nostalgic sight). Continue reading

Sautéed Shrimps / Langostinos Salteados

 Versión en Español

I confess that I absolutely love seafood and I do think that having grown up in a seaside town has a lot to do with it 🙂

The freshness of the ingredients is exceptional and the prices are much lower. And you learn to appreciate all the different types and ways of preparing them.

Believe it or not, cooking seafood can be very easy. In my opinion, the tricky part is knowing how to evaluate its freshness and how to clean and prep it.

Today I will present you a very simple and quick way of preparing shrimps. Continue reading

Venezuelan Roast Pork Leg / Pernil de Cochino Horneado

Versión en Español

This is one of the most popular roasts for the holidays in Venezuela; and it is served alongside the Hallaca, Venezuelan Ham Bread and Chicken Salad.

Coming from a Chinese background, I must admit that our holiday dinners involved quite a different menu: chicken, fish, vegetables, rice, soup, Chinese roast pork… Nonetheless, these four dishes have grown on me so deep, that I can only recall not having them in two occasions.

I was overseas in both of them and I did not know how to prepare them by myself from scratch. You see, I was a student with basic cooking skills to survive… you know how it is…

I have already posted about the Venezuelan Ham Bread and Chicken Salad, now is the turn for the Roast Pork Leg. Continue reading
