Empanada – Easy Peasy Spanish Pastry Pie

I first ate empanada at my friend Veronica’s place. Her family comes from the north of Spain and her mother makes a great empanada. She showed me how she makes it and it’s her recipe that I have shared ¬†here with you. Empanada makes a great dinner served with a salad. This is a recipe that can be made ahead of time as it’s delicious cold. Don’t skip the step to rest the dough after kneading. A well rested dough...

Snapshot – Windfall

I go for a walk in the mornings. Leftover habit from our last dog in Sydney who trained us to walk first thing in the morning and in the evenings as soon as we get home from work. I forgo the evening walk to avoid heat exhaustion but it’s still nice in the mornings. As a result I discovered these two beauties that had been put out with the rubbish. They are really beautiful chairs and the wooden frame is in tip top condition. I...
