Pumpkin Flan

Celebrate fall with this delicious pumpkin flan. Flan is a dessert I enjoyed a lot as a kid. It’s a delicious dessert that is easy to prepare and everyone I know falls in love with it after the first bite. Today I am sharing with you a pumpkin flan recipe. The basic recipe is a vanilla base making it super easy to get creative by changing flavors by using different ingredients.

Farm to table, your food comes from the hands of farmers #PassThePork

As a Latina I am not just celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month, I am celebrating all heritage, traditions and families. During my most recent trip to Minnesota and visit to swine farms I soon realized that they are more than just a company raising pigs for all of us to consume, they are also a family (or as in many cases, a couple of families) coming together for more than just putting bread on the table, they have partnered for the raising of pigs. From the pigs gestation to the end consumer (us), they have an extreme attention to details and great pride for their farms and livestock.

Harvest Trail Mix

Fall is all about being outdoors. Windy days with a crisp fresh air, different shades of colors on the leaves, and families enjoying the long beautiful afternoons. This is a beautiful time of the year indeed. Not too hot, not too cold. Just perfect.

Pumpkin Pie Spice Granola

Granola is that snack I go to over and over again. Is super easy to make, can be made into large batches and can be used in a wide variety of recipes. Add some granola to yogurt and enjoy a very good for you breakfast, add to your salad and have a healthy lunch, add to some fruits and vanilla ice cream and you won’t regret having dessert. Can you see why I love granola? Versatile doesn’t do it justice.
