Halloween Party 2012

Pumpkin Cheesecake


I've been wanting to make a pumpkin cheesecake since last year, but for any different reasons, I couldn't, so finally, I made it. It was so delicious, definitely a keeper. I had many many recipes for this cheesecake, and wanted to try them all, but finally, I decided that the first test would go to Jamie's recipe, althought I ended up changing it a little bit. And it was a great adventure, the oven caught on fire! Anyways, read more about this later in the post.....

Barley & Veggies Soup


So, as autumn continues, so does my craving for soup, soup and more soup every day!!! And now, I made a barley soup with many veggies. And chicken stock. Pretty yum actually. And I have a confession to make. I have never tried before barley. As a grain u know? So I did and I liked it. IT's definitely a keeper for my family. So here's the recipe I made, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did still am.

Creamy Cauliflower Soup


So, you know me. I love soups, no matter what time of the year it is, I just love them. Anyways, so I looked for a creamy soup, that wouldn't need a lot of cream or cream cheese or greasy stuff, but that used very little milk. And I also wanted something healthy, and I found Jessica's recipe and couldn't resist. I swear, as she also did, it's sooooo goood!!! And so comforting... anyways, give a try and tell me how do you like it!

Spaghetti Squash


So I've been wanting to try spaghetti squash since forever, but it couldn't be faound anywhere here in Mexico. Last week I found one, and OMG, I had to buy it and test it. I decided to make spaghetti squash and give it a try. I ended up loving it. Its' taste is pretty subtle and it can be paired with anything you can think of!!!

Onion Soup


I've been craving for onion soup since months ago!!! And for any different reasons, I wasn't able to make it before. So I made it, and believe me, it was delicious! I remember some years ago, my sister and I made one in our grandparents' house, and we enjoyed it so much. Anyways, I checked many recipes and in the end, I decided to make my own recipe.

Mongolian Beef


Surfing in Pinterest, I found a delicious and easy-to-make recipe from this blog, so I decided to give it a try.  Of course I changed some things from the recipe, but still, it was so good. The hubs and I were craving for Chinese food, so I had 2 leftover beef pieces from the party last Saturday, and I decided to use them. The beef is so soft, so good, so delicious, it's definitely a keeper for our family. Of course, a keeper for once every 4 months or so =) haha!
