Thanksgiving is over, and we’re gearing up for Christmas!!! Where is the best place to celebrate Navidades? Simple….
During this holiday season Christians across the world celebrate Christmas, and the Epiphany. The Epiphany or Twelfth Day is the celebration of the three wise men who followed the star to Bethlehem looking for baby Jesus. They followed the star to bring Jesus gifts of gold, myrrh, and frankincense 12 days after he was born.
I relish at the opportunity to make these sweet treats during the holidays and/or special occasions. If I were to make them all the time, guess who will end up eating most of them? Me!

Three Kings Day is a major celebration in our home as well as in many Latin American countries. For us it is the culmination of the holiday festivities that kicked-off with Thanksgiving.

Puerto Rican sandwich spread (sandwichitos de mezcla) is a staple in every party, event or family gathering in Puerto Rico. What is it? It’s a creamy and delish mixture of cheese, luncheon meat, pimentos and cream cheese nicely spread between two slices of white bread.
We’re kicking off the new year in true Southern style! My mother-in-law has graciously cooked for us a New Years Day dinner. The menu was white rice, black-eyed peas, sweet potato casserole, chitterlings (pig intestines), collard greens, baked chicken (normally this would not be included in the new years day dinner,but since little one and I don’t eat “chit’lins” mother-in-law made it for us), and corn bread.
