So I have been putting my new mixer to work...this is what I have done so far this week :)

Peanut Butter Cookies using Jif Creamy Peanut Butter....mmm they came out soo good and chewy!
Ill be sending a TWO dozen batch out to a dear battle buddy in Iraq !!

Below are a picture by picture process of the Empanadas de Carne, Pollo, and Queso, (Basically Beef Patties (Puerto Rican Style), but I alternated filling the dough (half the batch was home made dough and the other half store bought!) with stewed chicken and Cheese Wiz!! mmmm)
Stewed Chicken, after it was pulled of the bones and left in its sauce to simmer and reduce and the stirring consequently shred the meat :)

Ground Beef! Season and sauteed with Sofrito (recipe upon request), Sazon, Adobo and tomato sauce)

Prepared and NOT cooked!

Frying in Veggie Oil!

The finished products!!!

I LOVE to cook and bake, try new and old things, put a twist on the usual and come out with the unusual but yummy!!

I ended up making over 2 dozen lol so I sent a bunch over to my boyfriend's parent's house....hope they enjoyed it.

Well hope it makes your mouths water!!! :) 

Stay tuned Ill be doing Flancocho and mini Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecakes soon!!
