Dear Readers,


Think about Easter in South America is to think about food! Thinking back on so many Easter meals at my parent’s home! The most fun part was not the egg! In Brazil, they are ginormous! LOL Check it out!

It was all about sitting and eating ALL day! O dia todo! My family makes seafood dishes and yummy appetizers and desserts! My favorites listed under my pinterest account:

Moqueca de Camarao ( shrimp stew), Farofa de manteiga (Cassava Flour with butter and onions and eggs), Vatapa ( bread pudding made from bread, cashews, dried shrimp and other ingredients), white rice and more! Sooo good! Tao bom!

Some good words for Easter in Portuguese: Pascoa (Easter), Feliz Pascoa (Happy Easter), Ovo ( Egg), Chocolate ( chocolate), Cesta ( basket)

The best memories are all the aromas coming from my mom’s kitchen, my dad’s jokes and all the talk around the table! After all, Easter means giving and looking back, that is what ours was all about!

I hope you enjoyed my post!

Brazilian Candy Recipe – Fun to make with the kids!

Sunday, February 27th, 2011

Dear Readers,

This is an easy recipe which you can make it and bring a foreign language at the same time!

Cook 2 Tbsp  of butter

         1 Tbsp of chocolate powder

          1 can of condensed milk

Cook in low heat until mixture is not stuck to the pot, it falls off. We are looking for a more firm consistency. Spread butter on a plate and spread the cooked mixture and let it cool off until you can take a piece and make a 1 inch ball with it. Roll the ball on jimmys or sugar or nuts. Ask kids to help you make the balls and count them in Portuguese or Spanish as you roll them.

Um, dois, tres, quatro, cinco, seis, sete, oito, nove, dezembro          Portuguese

Uno, dos, tres, cuatro, cinco, seis, siete, ocho, nueve, diez                Spanish

Enjoy! Aproveite!

Bolinhos de Carne à Baiana- Brazilian Meatballs

Sunday, February 20th, 2011

Dear Readers,

Today I started my mission to post some of my mom’s favorite recipes and some Spanish and Italian recipes. I promise I will not post things that were incorporated to the American Cuisine! Please try my recipes and tell me what you and your family said about it!

Bolinhos de Carne a Baiana – Brazilian Meatballs


1 pound of ground beef

1 small onion

black pepper and cumin (depends on how much you like, I put a little bit of each)


3  eggs

bread crumbs

1 cup of flour

Mix ground beef, chopped onion, cumin, pepper, salt and 1 egg and place in the fridge for 2 hours. Make small balls and pass in the flour, egg, then bread crumbs and place in a skillet with hot oil, enough to cover the meatballs. Cook until brown. Serve on top of spaghetti or rice. Please no tomato sauce. Brazilians usually eat that on top of white rice, but my family likes it with pasta cooked sauteed on butter.
