A stunning bread to brighten up your breakfast table, or your next party.
I wasn’t the type of person who kept frozen fruits in the freezer. A firm believer of eating everything fresh, I just bought what’s in season at the farmer’s markets.

She introduced me to a light and flaky quick bread made with cheddar, cottage cheese, shallots, and livened up with aromatic fine fronds of dill.

I’ve seen it being called Chocolate Rice Pudding and Chocolate Rice Porridge in English, but it’s always going to be Champorado for me. It’s basically glutinous/sticky/sweet rice cooked with a lot of water to make it soupy-gooey, with chocolate and sugar added, and enjoyed with evaporated milk, powdered milk, milk or cream.
These corn muffins have delicious tops that are worth the last bite. Soft, dense, creamy and I could almost say “cushion-y” muffin body that is so, so nice to bite into, you won’t feel like you’re eating it just to get to the “top” — ‘know what I mean? They are GOOD.
