Fried Plantains: A Nicaraguan Classic!

I was recently blessed with the opportunity to spend time in the country of Nicaragua, for a missions trip. My team did so many amazing things while we were there, and one of them was…. you guessed it. Cooking! I spent several hours in the kitchens with Nicaraguan ladies that knew their way around a kitchen. Let me tell ya! It was an incredible experience. Now, I get a chance to share a little bit of what I learned, with you!
Carmen and I made Platanos fritos. (Fried plantains). They are quick, easy, and deliciously crispy!

All you need is:
Plantains (at least 2, but you can make as much as you want! Each plantain will make about 10-12 slices)
Vegetable or canola oil
Glass with a round flat bottom
Plate and paper towel

Begin by slicing your plantains into quarter-half inch thick slices.
Heat oil in a frying pan. Place slices in oil and fry for 3 minutes.
Remove from oil and press down with rounded glass. Return to the fryer for another 5 minutes.
Place on the paper toweled plate to cool for a few minutes before devouring eating!

My Sister’s Wedding Cake!

August 16th was a fabulous, crazy day! My oldest sister got married, and I was the Maid of Honor and her cake maker. I just wanted to share with you all a few photos of the cake! It was a GF carrot cake, (She’s gluten free!) with a whipped cream cheese frosting, and a buttercream finish. The cake was gone almost immediately, the guests just loved it! I was so happy!
