Ropa Vieja (Cuban Meat Stew)
Last week I went over to my local Cuban restaurant and had their Ropa viega sandwich and was kind of craving it. I always look to Goya for their recipes. I used pretty much all the ingredients except for the Goya Sofrito, sorry Goya, but I can't stand their bottled sofrito so I used fresh Sofrito in place I also left out the capers because I didn't have any on hand. I also didn't use the Goya bouillon I used the Knorr one instead. Over all this dish was great. I made black beans and white rice to go along with it.

Vanilla Pudding
The flavor was alright but I also couldn't get it to thicken.

Lola's Horchata
I make this all the time. We like creamier hochata so we add a lot of milk and I do add a little more rice. I also let it soak over night that way it gets more flavor and the cinnamon doesn't seem so gritty.
