Bolos Levedos – Portuguese Flat Muffins

These are traditional from Furnas, a town in Sao Miguel, Azores.  I like to eat them plain but back home you can get sandwiches made with bolos in certain restaurants in Furnas. Deliciously simple but a little time consuming. Ingredients: For the yeast: 3 tbsp. flour 1 cup warm water 3 tbsp. yeast 1 tsp. sugar…


Soft and chewy brownies that are very easy to make!

Portuguese Sweet Rice

A traditional recipe from the Azores. Sweet Rice and Sweet Bread are always found at every religious celebration.

Leftover Beef Pot Pie

Whenever I have any meat leftover, I make pot pies and freeze them for future use.

Shrimp Pockets

This is a traditional Portuguese recipe of Rissois de Camarao. There are some variations of it, this one is my own. It may look intimidating but it is very easy, just a little bit time consuming. I like to start by making the dough and then the filling.
