Strawberry Banana Cream

Besides the Beef Tacos with Salsa and Guacamole, Blanca also prepared a dessert for the South Arm Community Kitchen. It is called Fresas and Platanos con Crema which translated to Strawberry and Banana in Cream.

Strawberry and Banana Cream is so simple to prepare and yet it’s so delicious.  This is a great item for potluck.

Ingredient

  • strawberries, cut into quarters
  • few bananas, sliced
  • chopped pecans
  • condensed milk (you may substitute half with yogurt if you do not want it too sweet)

Instructions

Just combine all ingredients in a large bowl and toss to mix well.  Love the sweetness of the fresh fruits and the crunchiness from the pecans.

Kuejadas (Portuguese Tart)

While I was browsing through my recipe collections this week, I found this Portuguese Tart recipe. I don’t remember if I have ever made it before. I love to collect recipes and most of the recipes just lay in my collection and never being used at all. Do you have the same feeling?

I’m wanted something sweet and I remember the ingredients of the Portuguese Tart do spell ‘SWEET’ in it. So, I decided to give it a try.

The Portuguese Tart is caramelized on the outside and has a custard like texture inside. It satisfies any sweet tooth and I’ll bet you just can’t eat one only.
