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!
