Hispanic Heritage Month Recipes

Happy Hispanic Heritage Month! Each year, from September 15 to October 15 Americans celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month by sharing the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central and South America. 2021 was especially significant because it was the 200th anniversary of Costa Rican Independence from Spain. Here are a few traditional & unique Latin American recipes you may want to add to your menu: 

Happy New Year 2015!!!

Hi Everyone, Happy New Year!
We hope you all have a healthy, happy and prosperous 2015.

It was our turn hosting the family New Year's Eve party; this time the theme was Mediterranean Mezze!
Mezze comes from the Persian word 'Mazze' which means 'taste or snack.' Our New Year's Mezze was a selection of small dishes with varying hot and cold appetizers from the Mediterranean and Middle East. 

The Menu had plenty of variety: 

Meat dishes - Bacon Wrapped Dates, Salmon Toasts, Turkey Kibbeh w Garlic Tahini Sauce, Dried Lime Shrimp Skewers, Chicken Kebabs

Vegetable dishes - Baba ghanouj, Hummus, Muhammara, Samosas, Caprese Salad, Labneh w Pita, Stuffed Grape Leaves

Dessert - Fresh Fruit, Fruit salad, Orange Flower Cake, Almond Gelee with Blackberries and Rambutan

Here are a few shots from the table, recipes to follow at later dates.
