    Healthy Banana Pancake

    Like I already told you guys, I’m not really a breakfast person. But I have been trying to make better choices related to food at least on the weekdays, and hopefully on the weekends as well.

    Salpicão de Frango – Christmas Chicken Salad

    Today I want to tell you a little about our Christmas celebrations in Brazil. First of all, we celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve 24th and we normally celebrate it at dinner time – around 8/9pm so that we still have time to go around to our neighbours’ houses and they have time to come to our house. At midnight ‘Santa’ comes and leaves all the gifts and we can either open them as soon as they are on the tree or do it the next morning. The next day is one of the best days, because we have all the leftovers in the fridge and we just need to put…

    Rabanada with Dulce de Leche

    Rabanada is nothing more than the Brazilian way to make French toast. We love to serve it on Christmas Day along with other dessert, but we also find an excuse to make it any time of the year because it is quite an easy dessert and everyone always like it. A few weeks ago, I had some people over to celebrate the day of Saint Cosmas and Damian and I made some food from my state of Brazil, Bahia. This was the third dessert after the Brigadeirão and Blueberry Tart, and the first one which people finished because like I said before, everyone likes it.   Ingredients bread* 1 can…
