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.

Pumpkin Pie

This recipe is enough to fill 2 frozen pie shells or one large pie.

Papas – Portuguese Porridge

Papas is comfort food. I know my mother cooked but I don’t remember any of her cooking except for papas. There are different variations of this recipe, sometime my mom would make it with rice, sometimes with cornstarch and sometimes, she would put an egg yolk in the centre of the plate and pour the boiling porridge over it. This recipe is just for the basic papas for one serving.
