myhalalkitchen Annatto seeds for a #PuertoRican marinade I'm making. It's the all natural plant-based way to color foods, too!

myhalalkitchen Earlier today I got to taste the most delicious peanut butter & chocolate cupcake I've had in years, made by @chelseascupcakes! It was so moist and creamy amd had the perfect balance of sweetness. She definitely uses the best wholesome ingredients. I'll be ordering for my next important occasion. #supportlocal #womeninbiz #eatrealcupcakes #Chicago #cupcakedelivery 2w

myhalalkitchen It really does work to put a piece of bread into your brown sugar to keep it moist. Mine was hard as a rock and it softened within a day or two when I added just one slice of bread! #kitchentips 2w

myhalalkitchen Buttery sautéed mushrooms added to soups, stews, steaks and omlettes just give those dishes the most amazing flavor. Try it in something new and let me know how you like this addition of flavor! 2w

myhalalkitchen You don't always need a tenderizing tool to pound down your meats thinly- a good old flat-bottomed bottle of olive oil will do the trick. Just be careful not to break the glass and keep the bottle on the meat instead of your table or counter. 2w

myhalalkitchen "Mise en Place"- it means getting all your ingredients together and ready to go before cooking, so you can work fast and efficiently in the kitchen. Do you do this when cooking or baking? 2w
