South American chorizo is very similar to Mexican chorizo - spicy and made with fresh sausage (uncured).  Chorizo sausages are often grilled (arguably the best way to enjoy them), but the sausage can also be removed from the casing, crumbled, and browned in a skillet.

Leftover Easter Candy

Monday April 21, 2014

We are overrun with it in our house! Peeps, jelly beans, chocolate eggs... what to do with all of that candy? (before I just eat it by myself!). Fortunately, About.com's guide to candy, Elizabeth LaBau, has many other great ideas for baking with Easter candy.

Linda Larsen, About.com's Busy Cooks guide, compiled a useful list of recipes for Easter and Passover leftovers, including matzo chicken breasts and lamb curry.

Brazilian Marshmallow Candy: Maria-mole

Sunday April 20, 2014

Brazilian Marshmallow Candy - Maria-mole
This soft, melt-in-your-mouth candy is easier to make than you might think, and homemade marshmallows taste so much better than the store bought kind. You can also color/flavor them with flavored gelatin, and you can also pipe them into molds or freeform shapes.

Falso Conejo

Falso Conejo - Bolivian Steak and Onions

Anyone happen to know why this traditional Bolivian dish of breaded steak, sautéed onions, and vegetables is called falso conejo ("faux rabbit")?

It's a mystery.

But it is a delicious, satisfying meal, and rabbits need not worry. I made a version of this dish with breaded sliced tofu in place of the beef for the vegetarians in the family, and it was also quite tasty.
