Spanish Cuisine: Albaricoques, Tortitas Con Chocolate, Crema de Cacahuete

I’ve been in the kitchen cooking. Again. I believe that makes it twice in as many months.

My first recent kitchen adventure was a delicious and healthy breakfast creation: Pear yogurt, Special K cereal, and dried apricots. I chopped up the dried apricots myself. By hand. With a sharp knife. (Really. I did.) Then I artfully placed the dried fruit onto the yogurt and cereal.

This evening, I served up (for myself) a superb plate of tortitas de arroz con chocolate, generously spread with crema de cacahuete, and topped by a dollop of mermelada de albaricoque. Sadly, the masterpiece was consumed nearly as quickly as it was created. Next time, I think I’ll double the recipe. And speaking of recipes, if you’d like either of these, I’d be very happy to share.

Everybody eats when they come to my house (as long as they do the cooking)…
