Food, Food, Food!

Alright, so if any of you know me at all, you know I LOVE food.


So, this blog will be dedicated to food here in Ecuador. And best believe North American, Middle-Eastern and Asian food can be found all around Samborondón.  Here are tons of pictures of food I’ve eaten and food I’ve made.


This picture is from the first time I baked here in Ecuador. It was difficult to find all the ingredients (because they looked different and their names are all in Spanish), but I did it with the help of my friends from México!

However, I bought all of the ingredients without realizing that we don’t have an oven in our kitchen! Thankfully we do have a toaster oven, so I worked with what I had!


Here are my loved pancakes <3

The best cupcake I’ve ever eaten here. Dulce de leche filling with a cheesecake frosting and white chocolate. They need to add this to the menu at Moxie! I wish I could steal the recipe.




Yesterday I learned how to make Seco de Pollo, one of my favorite typical dishes here in Ecuador =]

Dinner last night. My first time in Bundheo, a fast-food place that sells Mexican, Arabic, and a mixture of other types of food!




These are just some of the foods I’ve eaten here in Ecuador, and it’s no wonder I’ve gained weight! But you know what? For me, good food doesn’t only fill my belly. It feeds my soul.


<3 Peace!
