Empanadas de Guayaba y Queso (Guava and Cheese Empanadas / Hand Pies / Turnovers)

My first time eating these was at the airport in Miami on my way back from visiting family in Buenos Aires. I fell in love. I started serving guava paste with hard cheeses as an appetizer, but didn’t try making pastries until a comedy video on the YouTube Mitú channel led me to a blog called My Big Fat Cuban Family that features Pastelitos de Guavaba y Queso using Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Sheets. I was about to drop a box of these in my cart at the grocery store when I read the ingredients and saw hydrogenated cottonseed oil. Back onto the freezer shelf it went. I believe Whole Foods sells puff pastry sheets made with butter only, so someday I may buy them and follow the Cuban Family recipe…or maybe I will learn to make laminated dough myself.

In the meantime, here is my recipe for guava and cheese pastries, empanada style, with pie crust.  Read the rest of this entry »

Sourdough rolls aka more #thanksgivingprep. Family is reporting back: "Good texture, good crisp, light sour." 375g bread flour and 125g whole grain durum flour. Scored by one of my kids. ~100g dough for each roll, baked 475 F 20 min on a preheated pizza stone. Longer bake time and many more in final version. Thanks to @monrealescookinginspirations for the inspiration .

It took me a while to work up the courage for this dyno. I envisioned face planting, but I promised my daughter I'd try it. Then we filmed each other. Good times! 😊🤗

Not always easy to find quiet green space.  #gardenstate #dogsofinstagram The arduous task of pecan pie testing for Thanksgiving is complete. It's very good. Surprise 😉 I'll work on crust beauty next time. Final photo shows goo #smittenkitchen #pecanpie #thanksgivingprep Just how good is this dip? So good my sons and I ate an entire head of cauliflower in order to capture the dip. It's just mayonnaise, lemon juice, garlic, and crushed mint leaves. As a kid I thought mayonnaise was gross until one day I was tasked with making salad dressing for a family dinner, and I found this in one of my mom's cookbooks.  Seeing an article about mayo aversion yesterday reminded me of this turning point in my relationship with mayonnaise.  https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.popsci.com/amp/mayonnaise-disgust .
