Happy Tasty Tuesday readers! Thanks for stopping by on this beautiful spring evening =)
I am feel really great today. It was a day full of accomplishment. I went to the gym, even though I was thinking of resting on my laurels from getting a new personal record on a 5k this weekend (the hubbs also had a PR but also still hit the gym). Moreover, I had a lovely time with my beloved friend M. Lastly, I read, cooked, and now I am blogging.
However, the most surprising thing that happened today was that during a routine doctor's appointment, I was measured for the first time in ages and guess what? I grew! I thought I was mere 5 ft and 1/4 " tall when instead I'm a statuesque 5 and 3/4' which means I am basically 5'1! I know, I know....it is too awesome for words. I feel tall and invincible even though I think all this means is that on a basketball team made up of smurfs I would be center. Still, I feel like a miniature giant.
Speaking of sporty things, these faux wings are perfect for watching sports like basketball - it's kind of reminiscent of tail gate food but without the extra calories and fat. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did (recipe is after the jump).

Good evening friends! Happy Tasty Tuesday. Tonight I have a great recipe to share with you - a deliciously decadent dessert idea that was easy enough to make that I basically did the entire thing during half-time of the Knicks-Celtics game.

Good evening readers! Thanks for tuning in for Tasty Tuesday.
I am sharing with you one of my mom's classic recipes. It's kind of her spin on mashed potatoes. Because she is Colombian, everything she makes is bound to have flavor. I love these flavored potatoes made with my Adobo seasoning (which I use on almost everything). My mom is notoriously bad at giving directions for recipes (she is very intuitive with the whole thing but on one auspicious occasion, I snagged her recipe.

Hello Readers! Every year during the holiday season, I try to find the perfect recipe for Easter dessert. Last year it was orange cookies. While I could have tweaked that recipe by using another type of extract (i.e. lemon, vanilla or almond) instead of orange, I wanted to try something new and a bit simpler, especially since I already knew I would also be making the Easter nests below. The good news is that the recipe I made is a crowd-pleaser.
Usually, I adapt recipes for the blog since I usually adapt recipes to my tastes, but today instead I am linking this recipe since I didn't make any changes. I would however consider adding more lemon extract to the recipe or switching the lemon extract for lemon juice and/or lemon zest.
