Meet my little puppies, Romulo and Rhea. Romulo a 7 year old short hair Chihuahua. Rhea a 6 years old half short hair-half long hair Chihuahua. Both in honor to my hometown, haha! They are so spoiled, so intelligent, they are always making their way to get a treat. With the cold weather, they don’t like to go out, Rhea immediately starts crying and Romulo starts shaking. I love to watch them lay by the sun or by the fire-place while I’m cooking. So…Flan for tonight? This recipe y so, so easy and delicious. This time I’m adding coconut and pecans, this is optional but I bet it will come out even better!
