Recipes | Homemade Flan

      I'm a total dessert person and I love trying new recipes. Flan is a classic and really easy to make! There are many variations of this recipe in which coconut flakes can be added, Rum, Dulce de Leche, etc,... But I love this simple, sweet and creamy one the most. Make this at your next party and I promise you it will be a hit! 


8 Servings
Total Time: 1 hour 20 minutes

1 cup white sugar
3 eggs
1 (12 fluid ounce) evaporated milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

2. In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, melt sugar until liquefied and golden in color. Carefully pour hot syrup into a 9 inch round glass baking dish, turning the dish to evenly coat the bottom and sides. Set aside.

3. In a large bowl, beat eggs. Beat in condensed milk, evaporated milk and vanilla until smooth. Pour egg mixture into baking dish. Cover with aluminum foil.

4. Bake in preheated oven 60 minutes. Let cool completely.

5. To serve, carefully invert on serving plate with edges when completely cool.

Apple Picking Fun | Alstede Farms

     I looooove Fall activities. Apple picking, pumpkin picking, hayrides and all that good stuff. Just something about being outdoors in nature during this beautiful season makes me all giddy inside. I seriously became a kid again along with my brother and sister petting all the animals, frolicking through the trees and taking bites out of the apples as we stuffed our basket with some to take home. If you live near Northern New Jersey and are looking for a farm, definitely take a trip to Alstede Farms... it was so much fun, and they even had an awesome band playing country music. Here are my photos of when I went with my family!

OKAY this was the funnest thing ever!
