I’m gearing up to make some delicious goodies for Austin Bakes for West, Texas. As you’ll remember the residents of West were hit hard when a plant explosion demolished parts of their city. Austin food bloggers are leading the effort to have a gigantic bake sale to raise funds for the West community.
I’ll be making some Nutella Peanut Butter Balls, Maple Snickerdoodles and Pecan Praline Mini Bundt Cakes. If you’d like any of those goodies, visit the Round Rock location. But all locations will have unbelievably good treats for you to enjoy.
Now as I’m getting ready for that, I wanted to share some treats you can have at your Cinco de Mayo gathering. There is nothing like these traditional dishes to have on this festive day.
This is also know as Dulce de Leche and just brings a moan to my lips thinking of eating some. Definitely on my list to make this weekend.
This is something my dad loves to make and we all love to eat it. Traditionally made to eat after celebrations at around midnight or for breakfast.
Dad’s Caldo de Res
This is another one of my dad’s specialties. So easy to make yet so comforting.
These are a New Year’s tradition for my family but can be made pretty much anytime of the year. Think of them like the Mexican version of beignets.
