Making almond milk will be a two-day process if you decide to blanch the almonds (cook them to remove the skin), so if you get a craving, start making it right away.

My favorite almond milk recipe is for a cooked version flavored with vanilla and cinnamon.

The Life-Changing Loaf of Bread. It took me a long time to settle on the title for this post. Why? Because it’s quite a statement to suggest that a humble loaf of bread will change your life.

Okay, this meal may not be traditional but still has two important Costa Rican staples! All I’m missing is my warm weather (which hopefully I will find in Brazil along with more great food!)
