Malteser Mountain Cake

To round off recipe month, I have two more delicious recipes to share with you! The first is this creation, which I have fondly come to think of as the Malteser Mountain Cake.

Esquites Increíbles

Considering that November seems to have become recipe month, today I bring you another recipe!

Despite living in Texas for four years, I really didn’t pick up a single shred of talent for Mexican cuisine (or even Tex-Mex).

I had a real craving last week, so I thought I would try them out myself. Continue reading
