September is Hispanic Heritage Month and I haven’t stopped thinking about all the wonderful family moments and mom’s dishes. I miss her cooking. She lives in the center of Puerto Rico, an area well known for its coffee. Most of my family either worked in coffee fields or growing some sort of produce. She enjoyed making all kinds of dishes using coffee and a key, (or secret) ingredient. One dish she made and I tweaked a little is a morning french toast casserole. My version includes instant coffee, coffee creamer, chocolate chips, and some crunchy pecans. Making it the perfect cafe con leche french toast casserole. Sounds just about perfect, don’t you think?

Easy Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice

It’s that time of the year! Pumpkin spice lattes are here and every pumpkin recipe imaginable starts showing up in your feed. It’s like magic and we all love it. At least I do! It also represents the ending of Summer and the welcoming of Fall. Cooler days, changing colors of the leaves, layering on outfits, some ankle boots, and a whole lot of warm comfort food.

Why is My Sweet Zepol re-branding?

When My Sweet Zepol started it was all around sweets. Everything from desserts and cakes we enjoyed daily or during special occasions like birthdays, weddings, baby showers, I made it all. While it was fun I did move on to sweets and treats, easier to make and enjoy on a daily basis.

Then, since I make our meals at home I started sharing more savory meals, which I truly enjoy. What can I say, I love to eat. LOL!

The perfect spot to enjoy a brunch with friends. That was exactly what happened last weekend, a #BloggersWhoLunch time. A room filled with friends (both new and old), great food, amazing desserts, stories told from table to table and lots of laughter. Exactly what food and friends across a table should be; laughter, stories and empty plates. Here, let me share some of the dishes you can find at STK that we not only enjoyed, but took home with us too.
