Tarta De Santiago

I’m supposed to be in Spain right now with my mom and my sister.  But, I am not in Spain.  I am at home.  You know why.  My kids are upstairs virtual schooling and I’m listening to the sweet sounds of a tree being cut down.  So, almost the same.

We were supposed to leave last Monday.  Instead, I went to my mom’s house and spent the night.  We FaceTimed my sister and had a great evening.  I bought Spanish meats and cheeses from World Market, ALDI and Trader Joes.  I bought Spanish wine from The Wine And Cheese Place.  

I wanted to buy dessert too but couldn’t find anything at the store.  So to the internet I went…

…And I found Tarta De Santiago.  It is a delicious almond cake (and also gluten-free).  I used this recipe… which is funny because I think the blogger is actually German.  We have a real international delight here!  I made half the recipe in a 6 inch cake pan.  I think I underbaked it just a bit but no one cared.  It was fabulous!  I highly recommend you giving it a try.  It is super easy and yummy.  Just make your cross stencil a lot bigger than mine because we couldn’t even see it.

Any chance someone has a recipe of what to do with leftover chorizo?  It was delish but we didn’t eat a ton because we had so many options.  I can definitely add it to a big platter night but since it is finally fall, something warm sounds good.

Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. I must say it was a great evening and a real surprise and fun to taste all the treats. It was not Spain but hopefully next year this time. Love and thanks to my daughters for a very special evening.
