Cranberry and Protein powder muffins

I made these babies yesterday, these are made without flour or butter, I used the protein powder shake that is sold at the Health stores….

So far the nutrition value showing they are only 64 calories each! They are really tasty with your morning coffee or afternoon tea….

The recipe needs tweaking, I will post it once I have it finalized! They really taste good and I hope my friends enjoyed them…..

Did I mention these are completely sugar free….

Chocolate birthday cake

Tomorrow we have two birthdays at the office, so i am making my delicious chocolate cake…

Everyone loves this cake, it’s so chocolaty and moist..

I been making this chocolate cake since I was in high school, every time I baked it my brothers and sisters went crazy over it!

This time I topped the cake with homemade cranberry jam and buttercream frosting, two layers of cranberry jam and two layers of chocolate buttercream frosting…

First I did the crumb coat and I let it set in the fridge for half hour for the frosting to set a little, after half an hour I did a second coating to finished it off…

This is a homemade cake so I was not really worried about mastering the decorating part, the only concern I had is how would it taste… so a simple swirly wiggly touches with the offset spatula and I was done!

I was creative with the leftover crumbs, I lined a small cake pan with parchment paper for easy left, folded the sides and held them with a metal office clips…

Pressed the leftover crumbs in to the pan and made it in to a small cake, also I had a leftover frosting and I always have sprinkles in my pantry…

Frosting a little sprinkles and a mini cake was born for the little ones in my life to enjoy, well at least one of them was present at that moment!

We are the kind of people that could eat chicken every night and tonight was a no exception it was a slow cooker fiesta chicken night!

I called it fiesta chicken because of the the mix of the spices i used, this mix of spices added the most delicious mild spiced flavor!

This recipe is so easy to make, i used some of the chicken right out of the freezer, i had two pieces that I defrosted overnight in the fridge…I was thinking to grill them and to use as a topping on a salad but I changed my mind since I was on a mission to get my garage cleaned today!

Do you smell the aroma!! Ahhhhh Yummmm

5 boneless skinless chicken breast

1/2 tbsp sea salt

1 cup of water

1 cinnamon stick

1 tbsp dehydrated onion

1 tbsp dehydrated garlic

1/2 tbsp onion powder

1/4 tsp dry thyme

1/2 tbsp ground coriander

1/4 tbsp ground cumin

1/4 tsp hot chili powder

1/4 tbsp ground paprika

1/2 tbsp ground achiote pepper

1/2 tbsp ground pasilla chili

1/4 tsp all spice

2 chipotle adobados peppers

1 small can green chili sauce (mild)

Cilantro leaves for garnish

Add the chicken to the slow cooker, add water and all the spices, add the green chili sauce, adobados peppers and the cinnamon stick.

Cover and cook on high for four hours, after two hours left the cover and mix the chicken well with the spices, cover and continue cooking!

For my plate I served it with a mix of green salad with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar dressing, and for my husband I served it with vegetable tartars (he likes them a lot )!

this dish could be easily served with all the delicious tacos or burritos fixing but we chose the lighter version for tonight dinner!

Enjoy!!

Mahalabia pudding

The best desert to eat in this cold weather is this delicious, tasty, hot and flavorful pudding!

I had an extra milk that was about to expire by the end of this week and I really hate to waste food so this was whipped up in no time …

This pudding is also delicious in the summer times, stash it in the fridge and you have a cold delicious and refreshing treats.

A little of chopped mixed nuts, cinnamon and rose water to complete it….
