Food, Glorious Food!

Savory Corn Muffins


I made these savory muffins recently and although I didn’t have just plain yellow cornmeal, a mix of masarepa (pre-cooked yellow cornmeal) and polenta (coarsly ground cornmeal) worked just as well. We liked them with extra ají (red pepper), shredded cheese, and onion.

Pulled Chicken Sandwiches


This is one meal that reminds us of summer BBQs back in the US. BBQ is not really a tradition here so I had to make the BBQ sauce from scratch, too. To save time you can use pre-cooked chicken or if you have the time, marinate the chicken first before cooking it in the delicious sauce. Paul liked it with tons of ají, or chili pepper.

Llapingachos (Ecuadorian Potato Cakes)


I was feeling bad that I wasn’t making enough Ecuadorian recipes so I visited Laylita’s website to try my hand at an Ecuadorian dish (thanks for the link, Clare!). I made these llapingachos with traditional peanut sauce (not pictured) as a side dish one night and they were delicious.

Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies


We had some extra raisins and like any good Ecuadorian we always have “Quaker” (pronounced here like quack-er – like another name for a duck) on hand. I never realized how popular oatmeal was down here until I was served it for breakfast and mixed with cinnamon and milk as a hot drink at lunch.

I like my raisin cookies chewy and reading this recipe I found out the secret is to refrigerate the batter before serving.
