Berry Medley Compote

If you like a bit of sweet, tart and freshness combined all-in-one over your favorite breakfast or desserts then a fruit compote is the way to go. They are perfect of pancakes, waffles and french toast, as well as desserts like ice cream or cakes. My compote recipe is very basic which to me is ideal because I can make it without much hassle. Not mention I use frozen fruit! It’s perfect to use when certain fruits are not in season or you simply do not have 3-4 different types of berries laying around on a given day! However, you can make a compote with different fruit combinations and if you have fresh fruit available you can still use this recipe without much difference.

Homemade Blackberry Jam

Over a week ago I bought a small box of blackberries thinking the kids would devour them…boy was I wrong. Almost everyday I offered the berries and they were rejected each time. I really didn’t want it to go bad so I figured I would use it in a recipe and by making a jam out of it I would be able to preserve it better and have more options on how we eat it! Making jam is surprisingly very easy and so delicious, a simple way to learn is to remember to use equal parts berries and sugar!

Mexican Chorizo, Egg and Potato Hash

Mexican chorizo has got to be one of my favorite ingredients to use, the way it melts and covers every single bite with the perfect balance of salt and spice can really elevate any dish. There’s a wide variety of chorizo that come in either small links or large individual links. They are from beef or pork and depending on the brand the spice level can vary. This recipe has got to be my go-to Sunday breakfast. I usually use Yukon gold potatoes because that’s what I usually have around but it is commonly made with russet potatoes, it tastes great either way! Both potatoes are perfect for a hash because it can hold its shape and soak up all the flavors nice all while being fork tender. This is so simple with only three ingredients (plus some salt!) that can turn bland eggs and potato into a delicious and savory breakfast hash!

Homemade Flour Tortillas

One of my family’s favorite are my homemade flour tortillas. I grew up on these and I am making sure my kids love and appreciate them as much as I do. My mom always made them from pre-made flour which are tasty and for a while I did the same, but one day it just wasn’t working! They were too tough and dry…I mean it was like eating a floury chip. Anyway, I took the challenge of making them from scratch, and OMG they were the best! It was much easier than I expected and they were soft and chewy, especially that first bite as soon as they are done!
