Tomato cherry and herb puff tarts (Tartas de tomate cherry y albahaca en masa de hoja)







Finally I am here to finish  the post of these Tomato cherry and basil little tarts.
This month has been crazy and sometimes a mess  with my appointments to the kinesiologist and everything else, Im going three times a week.
But the truth is never very quiet around here.

This recipe is vegetarian and we all loved it, the good thing is with puff pastry and they are made fast, you can vary the fillings but I had the tomatoes because suddenly I crave a recipe and so it was with this one.

I made this recipe in these smaller rectangular molds but it can be done in round or one long one, that is the one you have on hand or you like more.

Take advantage that in many places it is still summer and you can get beautiful tomatoes and basil. In any case, here in Chile, cherry tomatoes are usually found year-round.
Love and hugs for everyone.
Thanks for coming.

raspberry and greek yogurt ice cream (no churn) Helado de yogurt griego y frambuesas










I love ice cream and I say it with pleasure!
 I have not done much this last time but I craved raspberry ice cream and I loved this recipe with Greek yogurt. 
The  color of raspberry is amazing! and natural of course . 

I  know I have become more  demanding for ice cream but I love when  they are delicious and natural.
I recommend this recipe for easy and delicious. The only thing  
take your  time to remove the ice cream  of  the freezer before serving. Will be more softer.

About my health, better, today I started with the kinesiologist, it is very fun because in the same room there are several more persons but he was very nice with me and did not make me suffer much. It gives me hope. I will go  three times a week-
Lots of hugs and kisses to all!

Blueberry lemon mini bundt cakes (mini bundt cakes de limon y arandanos)












  This is another recipe I wanted to make some time ago and finally I could because my arm is better although it still hurts. (The doctor says it takes several months to get well again but really I feel better)

About these delicious mini bundt cakes I used small molds that can be found in E-bay here or Amazon.

They are made of silicone and that's why they are good for unmolding, but you could also make a big bundt cake in one mold  with this recipe.

In many parts you still have blueberries and in this recipe you can use fresh or frozen.
 I always freeze berries  in the summer to have in our winter.

Send you greetings and hugs to all who stopping  by here. Thank you!
