cooking part II




or rather take two!! good thing i have another year to perfect my skills....see i'm all smiles in the pic b/c i think i have mastered the empanada (which is seriously a fancy word for hot pocket)...until my husband reads the recipe and says we're suppose to have 12 and we only have 6. whoops! reading the instructions correctly is always a plus when cooking. they had twice as much dough as they were suppose to but it didn't ruin dinner. i am not giving up on my quest. i want to try them again and this time, i should lay off the wine until dinner :)
ps. seleta, thanks for my bracelet...i love her ;)

ooo looks yummy!
wine makes cooking even more relaxing! And I agree, it is always a good excuse if it's not 100% correct : )

Susie @ Maddie's Nest said...

Sounds yummy and totally like something I'd do. I've got a great empanada recipe I do for appetizers....but cheat and don't make the dough from scratch! Have a nice weekend.

keely @ luxe + lillies said...

Lila said...

Good for you! If you haven't made a pumpkin empanada over the holidays, you should definitely try it! It's the best!

Enchanted Roses said...

Nice work.
Empanadas are my favourite dish :) But you might wanna check the right amount of dough, because the crust is better when it's thin^^
