Peppermint Hot Chocolate / Chocolate Caliente con Menta

English (Español abajo)
I feel like I spend an inordinate amount of blog space discussing my love of peppermint-flavored foods. Every time the holidays come along, I’m immediately in the mood for peppermint in all of its yummy, seasonal forms. As you can see by the title of this post, this year is no different. This Peppermint Hot Chocolate recipe is full of minty goodness, plus deliciously rich hot chocolate. In fact, even if peppermint isn’t your thing, just omit the mint extract and you’ve still got some fantastic homemade hot chocolate. Either way, be sure to give the video a watch and try it for yourself!


Me parece que utilizo una cantidad exorbitante de este blog para discutir mi amor para toda la comida que sabe a menta. Cada vez que llegue esta temporada, inmediatamente tengo ganas de comer comida de menta en todas sus ricas formas. Como pueden ver por el título de esta entrada, este año no es nada diferente. De hecho, aún si no te guste la menta, sólo hay que omitir el extracto de menta y todavía tienes chocolate caliente casera fantástica. De todos modos, échale un vistazo al video y pruébalo por ti mismo!

Prueba de Comida #2: Pocky de Té Verde / Taste Test #2: Green Tea Pocky

Español (English below)

No estoy segura de si subí mi último video de pruebas de comida por este blog (lo de los chips Lay's del sabor pasta macaroni con queso cheddar y tocino), pero esta vez decidí que iba a subir el video por el blog sí o sí, aunque no sea un video de receta. Todos somos fans de la comida, así que me imagino que nos gusta hablar de dulces también.

No hay mucho que decir en la entrada de blog que no digo en el video, así que voy a dejar que se lo vean lo más rápido posible para que puedan charlar conmigo en los comentarios sobre los Pocky, que son uno de los mejores dulces en el mundo, por lo menos según mi opinión. :D


I’m not sure if I posted my last taste test video on this blog (the one about Lay’s Cheddar Bacon Mac & Cheese Chips), but I decided that I was going to definitely post this video on the blog, even if it’s not a recipe video. We’re all still food fans, so I imagine that we like talking about snacks, too.

There’s not much that I can say in this blog post that I don’t say in the video, so I’m going to let you guys go ahead and watch it as soon as possible so we can chat in the comments about Pocky, which are some the best candy in the world, at least according to moi. :D

Kracie Happy Kitchen Donuts Kit ハッピーキッチンドーナツ

English (Español abajo)

Have you ever heard of Kracie’s adorable candy kits? They’re these super cute candy kits from Japan that you can use to make candy versions of waffles, sushi, hamburgers, and in this case, donuts! I’ve seen tons of YouTube videos showcasing these beauties and knew that I had to give one a try for myself. I learned three important things in this process…

(1) I am terrible at icing teeny tiny donuts. Even worse, these are meant for children. I almost have a Master’s degree and I cannot successfully assemble a children’s candy kit.

(2) These donuts are more for the fun of making them than the joy of eating them. Just so you don’t get your hopes up. They taste okay—just like your basic kid’s candy.

(3) That being said, this was super, super fun!

If you’d like to see how I put together my admittedly less-than-stellar donuts, be sure to watch the video below!

Grilled Mushroom Sliders Revisited / Sliders de Champiñones a la Parrilla

*Since I recently made a YouTube video showcasing this yummy recipe, I'm reposting it here on the blog as well so we all can rediscover some deliciously easy grilling.

English (Español abajo)

I’m sure you’re familiar with the term “glamping,” in which one goes camping, but usually from the comfort of a hotel room with fluffy robes and round-the-clock meal deliveries. To some (read: me) that’s basically the only kind of camping that should exist. These burgers are basically the grilling version of glamping. You get to be super healthy and use baby portobello mushrooms instead of ground beef patties and cook them on a grill pan from the air-conditioned comfort of your own home, with nary a fly or UV ray coming anywhere near you.

March/April Favorite Things / Cosas Favoritas de Marzo/Abril

English (Español abajo)

It may seem that things have been somewhat quiet around the blog for a while now, but it’s actually just that I’ve been doing a few non-food-related things over on YouTube these days. Since this is primarily a food blog, I wasn’t sure how well they would fit in over here. However, I’ve talked about my other interests before on this blog and it’s not fair to leave you guys out on my current YouTube-y fun, so I thought I’d try including blog posts featuring some of my other YouTube ventures. Today, we’re talking about favorite things!

Thanks to some lovely (read: not lovely) internet problems that I’ve been having since March, I didn’t end up posting a March favorites video, so April’s video is going to be a March-April hybrid. For those of you who’d prefer to hear about it all in video format, here’s the YouTube video all about my March/April favorite things.

February Favorite Things / Cosas Favoritas de Febrero

*Español abajo*

Since my YouTube channel shares a lot in common with this blog and this blog features recipes posted on my YouTube channel, I thought it might be a good idea to post non-food-related (is that a word?) videos over here as well! 

This favorites video for February features, yet again, food and knitting. The food part should come as no surprise to anyone here, however the knitting is a newer phenomenon for me. And, I’m proud to report, after only about 2-3 months, I’ve finally mastered how to make one hat. That being said, it’s quite a lovely hat with only a minimum amount of alpaca fuzz migrating into my lungs in the process.

We also discuss my channel reaching over 100 subscribers (What?! Also, it involves a mini bundt cake) and my love for the Olympics.

So, if you’re into any of the above, be sure to check out the video!

Super Easy Smoothies / Batidos Súper Fáciles (Video)

English: In life, I have several ongoing quests.

(1) Knit a beanie perfectly (Mine always turn out disturbingly irregular)
(2) Actually buy only the five items for which I entered Target
(3) Make a smoothie that tastes good

The first two are still a work in progress. With the third, however, I’ve recently had great success! Practically an “Eureka!!!” moment. Today I present you with not one, but three super easy, super delicious, super quick fruit smoothie recipes, in video format, of course.
