I was looking for a gluten-free muffin to bake, these came out more than I was expecting. The lime zest make them so refreshing and the baked blueberries just pop in your mouth like a little balloon of flavor! So good! I like to bake muffins because they are the perfect portion. Don’t have to worry if one slice is thicker than the other. They freeze perfectly, so you always have a quick breakfast ready or a perfect munch with your coffee for a snack.
LIME-BERRY CORN MEAL MUFFINS
2/3 Cup Corn meal
2 Cups Almond Flour
2/3 Cup Sugar
1 Cup mixed berries (I used blueberries and raspberries)
2 Limes, zest and juice
Place butter and sugar in a medium bowl and mix until it becomes light and fluffy
Add rest of the ingredients and stir carefully until well combined
Divide the mixture into 12-16 muffin liners
Bake for 20-25 minutes until a tooth pick comes out clean
I wanted to make a red version of a Pesto, so I came up with this combination of flavors that were absolutely delicious. You can pair it with Poultry, fish, simple toast or pasta just as I did this time. It is the easiest to make too. Just throw all the ingredients in the blender (or if you have a food processor much better), and done!
This morning I just needed something sweet for breakfast. These pancakes came out amazingly good and filled up my sweet tooth with out going over the board with sugar and without adding any artificial sweeteners either. So they were very satisfying. Enjoy!
How about this delicious breakfast!! This is a healthy loaded potato. Swap the regular potato for a sweet potato, which have fewer calories and more fiber. Then prepare some scramble eggs with spinach and there you go! You have a healthy topping. This is so good! The sweetness of the potato, the bitterness of the spinach, saltines of the egg and I added a little bit of this awesome hot chilli sauce that my son brought me from Hatch (great place well known for growing beautiful tasty chillies)! You have an explosion of great flavors in your mouth! Just Delicious!
This is a Molcajete. It is a utensil that the indians created to grind vegetables to prepare all different kind of salsas. It is made out of volcanic rock. It is like a bowl with three legs and a separate oval stone.
Today I made salsa, have I mentioned that we all Mexicans love to pour salsa over everything? Well yes, we do. Tabasco can’t beat a real homemade salsa. And even better, a blander can’t beat a molcajete, it gives the salsa such a nice different texture. That is why I still use it.
This is a really spicy (hot) salsa, but we love spiciness too! You may adapt the ingredients to your convenience.
This is a very simple recipe, yet full of flavour and I belive it looks very elegant. In case you want to impress someone! I had it as a main course, but half the portion can be served as an appetizer or even as finger food if you make the rolls smaller.
Give it a try, and let me know how it works for you!
My father has been in my mind lately. His birthday and the anniversary of his departure were fairly recent. I miss him, he was a very honest hardworking man and admirably, he was always in a very good mood. I remember he loved migas con huevo, he could have it for breakfast or dinner. The first thing that came to his mind when mom asked him what he wanted to eat, was Migas con Huevo.
It is such a simple yet delicious dish. I must have passed this crave to my children, because I also remember them as little children climbing on a chair to chop the tortillas for me to prepare the eggs.
Hope you like this way to prepare eggs that bring me such good memories. Serve them with salsa, some avocado slices or refried beans.
This green egg muffins are loaded with protein, fiber and flavor! Very simple, Green chiles and cilantro add such a great seasoning that they don’t need anything else. Spinach add vitamins, iron and fiber. Eggs add the protein that you need to start you day. I find egg muffins so convenient because they keep for several days in your refrigerator and you can pop them in the microwave to have a healthy quick breakfast. They make a very healthy snack too!
It has been a while since I don’t bake. It is snowing and gray, so with this kind of weather I’d love to have a hot cup of coffee with a nice nutritious muffin.
Yesterday morning my little puppies ( I have two 3 lb Chihuahuas) were urging me to take them out. They didn’t understand it was cold and snowing. It was so cold that Rhea didn’t want to step outside the door mat and Romulo who is more adventurous, walked about 6 feet away when he started limping on one leg and then another leg and before he could come back to the mat he wasn’t able to walk. This happen in a matter of seconds. I carried both of them and went in side. They spent the rest of the morning next to the fire-place.
This muffins are delicious! Only good things in there like almonds, macadamias, coconut flakes. They freeze perfectly, pop them in the microwave and you can have a healthy warm breakfast! Give them a try, and let me know how you like them!
