Ají de leche

Ají de leche. I've been craving ají de leche lately, the kind of thick, creamy milk-based hot condiment that they put on everything in Trujillo, one of the Andean states in my home country, Venezuela. I have yet to create a recipe that does justice to those flavors I hold dear in my memory.

Pickled Chipotle Peppers with Sugarloaf


Pickled chipotle peppers. I adore chipotle peppers. The smoky taste of a ripe, dried jalapeño has become a staple of my kitchen, and recently it's one of my favorite ingredients.

If 'Elena of Avalor' Went to School, She Would Have an Arepa in Her Lunchbox

If 'Elena of Avalor' Went to School, She Would Have an Arepa in Her Lunchbox
is brought to you by Disney Back To School Collection. Thank you for supporting 
the brands that Savoir Faire collaborates with, so we can keep creating 
and sharing recipes that are fun, colorful, and delicious.
Be it fate or sheer dumb luck, I only have two kids, and they're both boys. I say luck not because I wouldn't have wanted to have a daughter, but because I know for a fact that, if I did, my world would be pink and fuchsia, not unlike the world of Disney's newest princess, Elena of Avalor (or the world of Chloé and Cristina, the daughters of my good friends Rory and Ana Cristina).

Gluten-Free Sugarloaf Arepas with Anise (VIDEO)


Gluten-free sugarloaf arepas with anise. Arepas are usually a savory dish, but these sweet treats are sweetened with sugarloaf syrup (papelón, as we call it in Venezuela, or panela in Colombia, piloncillo in México and rapadura in Brazil.) They are sprinkled with anise seeds, which give this morsel its defining flavor. They’re then fried in vegetable oil and eaten with fresh queso blanco.

Arepa with Cheese, Tomato, Avocado and Bacon

Arepa with cheese, tomato, avocado and bacon. I have made so many arepa versions in my life, that I don’t know how came to my mind this one with cheese, tomato, avocado and bacon whose recipe I show you today. It was a night when I got home in my bachelor days and had no choice but to seek in the fridge any leftover of better days.
