Causa Limeña

  Causa is the layered potato and seafood salad you see above.  A signature dish from Peru there are endless ways to compose and present this dish.  You can make this as gourmet or as humble as you want.  While we've made a simple Causa here, you need only be limited by your imagination.  I've seen huge family sized [...]



  As is customary in many Latin cultures, at noon during the week my family would get together for ‘almuerzo’ (lunch).  The almuerzo would be our main meal of the day, and we would all come home from school or work to share it together.  One of the dishes that was always welcome was Silpancho.  Silpancho is a popular Bolivian [...]


Chicken Pot Pie

  No matter what season it is, a day like today can always be around the corner.  This actually suits me just fine, because a cloudy, rainy evening is perfect for a dinner like this - Chicken pot pie.  The name and concept behind this meal has comfort food written all over it, and besides being nourishing and delicious, this [...]


Spaghetti and meatballs

  Right here we have a comfort food classic - here is our take on Spaghetti and meatballs...  or as they are known in spanish - Albóndigas.    A few years ago, when me and Fabio first tried making fresh pasta, we didn’t have a pasta roller -  we used a rolling pin.  We WORKED for our dinner that night, [...]


Grown-up Grilled Cheese

  Ever get the craving for a classic grilled cheese sandwich?... well... for next time, this is a very tasty ‘grown-up’ version you might want to give a try - we found this on the Williams Sonoma website and it seemed a perfect opportunity to have gourmet sandwiches for dinner and also try out another recipe from my favorite baking [...]


Caesar Salad

  Most of the time I have salad, the salad is on the side of my plate, an accompaniment to my main course, or as a starter just before it.  There are, however, a couple of meal equivalent salads that I will gladly eat in place of dinner and a chicken caesar salad with homemade croutons (and topped with bacon) [...]


Duck Confit with de Puy Lentils

  While we were in Paris, we had the good fortune of being hosted by one of Fabio’s good friends and her new husband.  We stayed in their home and they showed us around the city.  While the entire trip was wonderful, a highlight of our days in Paris was getting the chance to eat at some classic french bistros, [...]


Smoked Salmon Pizza

  Me and Fabio love making pizza at home, and we are constantly in the pursuit of perfecting our technique, trying out new crust recipes and experimenting with new topping combinations but we always come back to either this version of a smoked salmon pizza or the classic Margherita as ultimately they are our favorites. This is a recipe inspired [...]



  Here is our recipe for the beloved Salteña.  We make ours with chicken, potatoes and peas but you can switch the chicken for beef and pair it with beef broth for an equally delicious variation.  A salteña is what you see above, it is the image in our header, it is our favorite food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. [...]


Caramelized Onion Flatbread

It has been a couple of months since we have posted anything here.  The end of the summer really kept us busy as we were planning and taking our first big trip together to Europe.  We’ll be posting many new recipes inspired by our time in Spain and France soon, but to start us back up again we have a [...]
