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: 

Food 'n Film January 2016 - Roundup

The first entry is inspired by "The Princess Bride". This delicious Spiced Peanut Brittle w Cocoa Nibs was inspired by Fezzik’s line during his and Inigo’s rhyming contest, “Anybody want a peanut?” The Main ingredients represent the main characters: Butter - Buttercup, Raw Cocoa Nibs - Westley (The Man in Black), Spices - Inigo, and of course Peanuts - Fezzik!

The next entry is inspired by the 1985 film "Return to Oz." One of my favorite culinary scenes is upon Dorothy's return she comes across the lunch-pail trees, inside said pails there was a ham and biscuit sandwich wrapped in white paper, a piece of cake, a pickle, a slice of cheese, and an apple.

Stay tuned for February's Link-up  !!
