Doesn’t that look delicious? Some of you may have already seen it, here, over at Gloria's, blog. You don’t know Gloria? Wait…what? Please, allow me to introduce you to her because she is one of the sweetest ladies in our blogging community. She always has a kind word to say, no matter what the post, and she takes the time to keep on coming back to your blog to see what you’ve said to her. Not many people do that. Heck, I can't always do that!
Gloria lives in the countryside of Chile, about thirty miles from Santiago, where the trees are just now beginning to blossom. Hard for me to wrap my head around as I feel our temperatures begin to drop here in the States.
She is married and a mom to adopted twins, which touches me greatly because I’m also adopted, so for that, I say thank you, Gloria! Her twins, Ditto and Esperanza, are eighteen and finishing school soon and both share a passion for music and go to as many concerts as they can. Kids after my own heart!
Gloria (sorry for the tiny picture) enjoys reading and gardening but her true passion is cooking. She comes up with new and creative recipes for her blog and she finds recipes from some of her favorite sites and shares them with us. Not only does she share her recipes in Spanish, she translates them in to English too. How amazing is that?
Which leads me to the beautiful picture above...
Looks yummy – almost like the one Gloria posted – almost.
That’s because it really started out looking like this on my cutting board. I messed up somewhere…terribly. The dough stuck to everything!
I thought it could be salvaged by putting it into a pre-made piecrust but then when we cut into it, not so much. The conversation I did from “grs”, which I figured was grams and Gloria has kindly confirmed, I did incorrectly somehow. Or maybe the cornstarch was bad? Yeah, let’s blame the cornstarch!!
So, for great recipes, go see Gloria and avoid me at all costs…unless I share my secret recipe for Slum Gum Gooey….that kicks ass!
Gloria, I bow down to you for all things baking! You are by far one of the sweetest and kindest people I have encountered on my blog. I am so blessed to have met you through here. I’m so sorry I managed to screw up your wonderful recipe but I’m not giving up yet…I’ll just avoid baking bread. =)
