Dessert recipes are everywhere aren't they? Which ones do you try?
Let me share with you my very best dessert recipes. Below are the recipes I make for Christmas, Thanksgiving, Valentines Day, and other special occasions.
For Christmas my kids insist that I make peanut butter balls and mint brownie squares at a minimum. It's just tradition.
Thanksgiving requires that I make apple and pumpkin pie. If I don't, it's just not Thanksgiving. Peanut butter balls also make a great Valentine gift.
Please enjoy my family favorites and who knows maybe you'll start a family tradition too.
Let's start off with some Mexican dessert recipes to compliment our Mexican food recipes. Then we will move into more traditional recipes because everybody loves dessert.
Flan - also called creme caramel. A delightfully creamy dessert that is surprisingly easy to make. It's a delicious custard found in many Mexican restaurants and a great finish to a spicy Mexican meal.
Pumpkin Flan- Here is a nice variation to the caramel flan. This one is great garnished with a little whipping cream. Try this for your next Thanksgiving dessert.

Made your apple pie recipe yesterday. Absolutely the best!! And no gap! Your spice mixture was just right.
I have the apple/corer/peeler and it made perfect slices in no time. Thank you so much for your wonderful step by step instructions and for the video. Much appreciated. Lucky me! :)
Hi! I just wanted to say that your tortilla recipe/video is pretty much the greatest thing ever! I'm a college student, so it's a really great/cheap thing to make. They're especially good with butter, honey, and brown sugar.
I just have to make sure my family doesn't find out I stopped using the family tortilla recipe! Ha! Thanks again!

I just have to write to you and admit something! I'm preparing your spanish rice recipe at the moment AND....I want to thank you!
I had actually given up on making Spanish rice! No one, or no recipe, until YOURS, ever said to actually BROWN the rice so much.! I think thats the taste difference!
Thank YOU so much. I followed your recipe exactly,..and it is absolutely wonderful!

Just to let you know that I found your website and love it. We have very limited Mexican produce in Australia and I am enjoying making your recipes.
I have made your enchilada sauce a few times now. We all love it and have managed to find pinto beans at our central markets. Good Job. Well done.

Rockin' Robin, you truly rock! I live in china right now, far, far away from my beloved Mexican food. Finding ingredients is hard enough, learning how to make everything from scratch no longer is with your recipes.
Though I've only tried your tortilla recipe, I will certainly be coming back to your site to make retried beans and Spanish rice!
My tortillas were awesome, best yet, thanks for giving us a night of Mexican food all the way over here in China!

THANK YOU, THANK YOU!! I stumbled upon your website today as I searched the web for flour tortilla recipes. I made these just after viewing your video, and five of us devoured them.
SO DELICIOUS. And easy to make! I am most grateful to you for this simple, tasty recipe. Your video was a useful tutorial.
I've not attempted to make tortillas prior to making yours, though we often eat tortillas. We're vegetarians, so I was looking for a recipe which used canola oil instead of lard. You delivered. Merci.
WOW! What a great website. Love how you show what to do and how it is supposed to look. Definitely in my favorites folder.

- Where good Mexican food is hard to find.
Just made your enchilada sauce recipe and that's what I've been looking for. I like the fact it has a little heat but not too much so my kids will eat it. Thank you for posting the recipe. i am turning leftover turkey into turkey enchiladas tonight but the star is really the sauce. Thanks again.
