EMPANADAS…this is one of the dishes served at home during special occasions. The only thing that I have changed is that I baked them instead of frying them and since someone in the family did not like the taste of raisins, I decided not to include them in the filling. Years have gone by, yet, I have not forgotten those moments spent with persons that have given me a glimpse of the positive side of every human being. The family gatherings and those busy preparing special and particular delicacies, have dropped a special golden coin in my chest of golden memories. Empanada is a dish but I see it to be an instrument of how love and joy can be passed on.
