Chimichurri

I’ve never been a huge fan of Chimichurri; the bold, brash taste of the ones I’ve had or recipes I’ve tried always been a bit off-putting to me. But when I was thinking about something to go with my Coffee Rubbed Steak the other day, my mind immediately seized upon Chimichurri.

Coconut Tres Leches Cake

Coconut Tres Leches Cake

My brother reminds me now and then that any dessert that isn’t chocolate is just a waste of calories. I think I may have very well proved him wrong with this Coconut Tres Leches Cake with Caramelized Bananas, and proving my brother wrong is something that happens once a decade or so…if that! Sorry, bro, you know I love you!

Chipotle Pulled Pork Empanadas

Empanada Dough

Really the best - this is the proper dough that turns out with the giraffe like pattern that's the hallmark of a good empanada!

This is a beautiful, slightly lean dough. It makes 12 five-inch rounds of dough (you’ll need to use the scraps) about 1/8th of an inch thick. You can see how beautifully flaky this dough bakes up in Empanadas.

This works very well with four cups of filling, 1/3 of a cup in each Empanada.
