Comforting Homemade Meals

There is nothing more comforting than to have a home made meal. My husband eats out a lot, and even though he is lucky to give his taste buds a nice diversity of "sazones" worlwide he always misses a taste from home.
There is a Peruvian appetizer called "Causa" a mashed potato with chili based dish that is served cold and that can also be dressed up with shredded crab or just a simple mixed veggie with mayo salad in between. Well for today's lunch I decided to make something with a twist and I made this "Causa Balls" that were just a hit. You can use a similar recipe like this if you want to try. (note i did not use pepper or mayo etc, just plain potato, oil, salt, key lime and chili)
Here are a few pics of my "Pollo al horno Casero with Citrus" and Causa.

Don't judge the package by its cover

They say good things come in great packages, I and do so agree.  When I buy a store brand product I appreciate that the company has put thought into the package design, like good photography, more than good enough design and good printing at least.
Last week when I was trying to find a specific brand of Italian Panettone and realized it was gone from my grocery store I just went and decided to try the only brand available. The box was very simple but yet conveyed and communicated all I was looking for. To my surprise this one came out delicious, moist, flavorful and with the perfect texture. Never again judge all packages by its cover.
