I'm pulling from the archives today. This post makes me wince and happy at the same time.
Well, because yesterday I was looking up Empanada recipes. I remembered posting one somewhere...reading this post made me realize that they weren't worth the effort.
It makes me happy to think that I should just find a Mexican Bakery.
Wince? Goodness I've aged in five years! (and put on a pound, or ten)
On the other hand, I am SO glad I painted my kitchen cabinets white!
Hey, if you are local and know of any good Mexican bakeries, let me know!
If you're not local, tell me what you grew up eating as a kid that you wish you could have today?
If non of those things apply to you, tell me what makes you Happy....or what makes you wince?

These are little turnover type pastries that you can find in a Mexican Bakery. Mostly I have had ones that have pineapple (my fave) or pumpkin. Sometimes they are filled with meat.
Anyway, I found a recipe and happily went to making them. Thank goodness I made them in advance because.....First, can I say they aren't that easy?
Secondly, they didn't turn out as yummy as the ones we grew up on from Mexican bakery in Tucson. As a matter of fact they didn't turn out very good at all. They looked pretty good, but I think (Thirdly, and most importantly) I will be serving "Mexican" Chocolate Cake...from Costco.
