Being hispanic I love recipes with a latin flair. I also love it when I find sites that share all sorts of latin recipes. When I do find these sites I like to share them with you. Today I received an email telling me about a site called COCINA, I took a look at it and I fell in love!

Looking at the site I found a recipe that I had been wanting for awhile now. That recipe is for Candied Calabaza, I remember my grandma used to make this for me on my birthday. My birthday is next week and I will have it again in her honor. 🙂

COCINA asked if I would share a few of their recipes with you, so if course I said yes! Here are the recipes for you:
