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: 

Pumpkin Walnut Bread

Cooking for KishoreThe seasons have changed here; Days have gotten shorter, Nights have gotten colder and longer, and Trees have changed color and lost there leaves. These weather changes mean one thing in our house, it's officially soup and baking season! On the first truly cold weekend it only seemed right to bake a tasty quick bread including the quintessential Fall favorite, Pumpkin Spice. This soft, slightly sweet, nutty spiced pumpkin loaf encompasses favorite Fall tastes and colors; perfect with a hot cup of tea. 

Here's my recipe:
