Cannot wait to tell you all about it when I get back. In the mean time I am leaving you with 10 Latin Recipes with lots of flair!

Café Santo Domingo

Are you an avid coffee drinker? Do you carry a warning sign in the morning to not approached till you have had a cup-a-joe? Thanks fully I am not but I do enjoy a good cup of coffee. I have two in the morning at work but the coffee is so-so. At home on the weekend it depends. I can do without but if I do have brew coffee you can bet it will be better than the stuff we get at work.

I am always on the lookout for a new coffee to try. And I was thrilled to be offered a sample package of coffee from the Dominican Republic. Café Santo Domingo is the favorite coffee brand in that country and the company has recently made their coffee available in Canada, with coffee shops included.

Caribbean Rum Cake with Coconut

Although we always say ‘no gifts’, it is kinda nice ans sweet when someone brings you a little something when out celebrating your birthday with friends. And sometimes a little something can reveal itself to be a big experience. During my last birthday my friend Lisa gave me a small boxed Tortuga Rum Cake with coconut. It was really unexpected sentiment but so appreciated.

I knew of these cakes but I had never tried them. OMG it was so freaking awesome, perhaps one of the best cakes I have ever tasted in my life. Just soaking in rum! So for once, when the Creative Cooking Crew’s October theme – cooking with spirits – was announced, it was a no brainer decision: I had to recreate my own Caribbean Rum Cake with Coconut.
