        haha, I’ve already binged a lot this yeaar. Hence the need for self control. 🙈
        Also how do you know so much about Portuguese cuisine? Are you based in Portugal?

      • Shelly DS says

        LOL so here’s the thing… besides the food and the music, I don’t know much about both cultures either 🙈 I grew up in many different countries, neither of them were Angola and Mozambique 😂 and now I live in South Africa!

    It all looked so so so tempting. I love sweets and desserts. Really, me and my friends should be hovering around you next Christmas and spying on your menu and stealing lots of sweets from your fridge. Don’t lock your house 🙂

    I absolutely love Pastéis de natas. There is a large Portuguese population in the area where I live and we have some really good Portuguese bakeries. I haven’t had them in ages. I must plan a trip to the bakery after Christmas to get some.

      Awesome! I am a bit jealous because where I live, you don’t find them too often and when you do, they don’t taste as good. Have one for me and please savour every bite!

    Wow…I can’t decide which I want to try sometime, beacuse all look delish ! But we make “arroz doce” or arroz con dulce in Puerto Rico and it’s a family favorite. 😋

    If I were a better baker, I would love to try the Pasteis de natas! You sold me on the “combination of crunchy, silky, sweet and subtle!” Can’t wait to see how they turn out for you!

    These sound so delicious! I’m not familiar with Portuguese food but now I want to try these recipes. Thanks for sharing them with us (:

    Wow these look so good! Before this article, I guess I’d never really thought of or knew Portuguese desserts. I didn’t know flan counted as Portuguese.. I’d only thought of it as Spanish/Hispanic but I guess it makes sense that their cuisines overlap since they’re both on the Iberian peninsula.

    • Shelly DS says

      Yeah I think this season we are figuring out that lots of countries have overlapping meals. I didn’t know any of these was Dominican but apparently they are too!
