    • Adele is someone I’ve “known” for many many years, long before I had a blog, so it was fun to see Phil picking her name. She is a member of a cooking discussion group I used to hang around often – great cook, great baker, wonderful person!


      • Got the book today, the package is very pretty, pale blue with pink & red flowers on it! I have 10 tabs in it already. These are ones I can do with the addition of one or two locally found ingredients. I happened to buy chorizo because I want to try doing something with it, not sure I bought a good brand last time I tried it. This is leading me toward Portuguese Soup (Caldo Verde) for this weekend. I am deciding between the Coffee Souffle w/Dulce De Leche Sauce or Molten Dulce De Leche Cake. I would make the Avocado Creme Brulee, but I refuse to buy avocado’s since I have a tree out back, it produces later in the year though.

        Thank you Sally, I’m going to have a lot of fun with this!


        • Great that you enjoyed your gift! The avocado creme brulee is definitely an interesting recipe to try, keeping in mind that in Brazil avocado is mainly used as a dessert. It took me a long time to warm up to “guacamole” because I could not conceive the idea of avocado in a savory dish, but now I’m a guacamole-addict

          Have fun, Adele, I can hardly wait to make my next recipe from the book, I even have some shrimp stock waiting in the freezer for a second take on the “caipirinha risotto”


  1. How exciting! Thank you so much! When I get it I’ll make something out of it the next weekend and tell you all about it.
    Thank you, Adele


    • Ah, que pena! Decidi colocar um link aqui no post para que fique claro como foi que esse sorteio aconteceu, espero que na proxima vez voce possa participar tambem!
