Tembleque

Tembleque was my favorite dessert growing up and still is. Tembleque is a Puerto Rican recipe for a jiggly coconut milk pudding similar in texture to jello. It is a traditional Christmas dessert, but really a perfect dessert all year round, especially in summer.

I actually think that there has never been a more perfectly named dessert than tembleque, which in Spanish roughly translates to "wobbly" or "trembling," and is what this pudding does when you give it a tiny shake.

It's sweet and creamy and rich with coconut flavor, though it's actually completely vegan and dairy-free, made from coconut milk and cornstarch, rather than gelatin. It's perfect for entertaining since there are few who can't enjoy it.

If you're looking for a crowd-pleasing dessert this year, I recommend giving this one a try. It's ridiculously easy to make (seriously about as complicated as making a box of jello), and so very satisfying. recipe

 

 

 

El Santo Nombre de Jesus


Dios bendiga el Santo Nombre de Jesus
que murio en la cruz donde sufrio tanto.
Dios bendiga el Santo Nombre de Jesus
que murio en la cruz donde sufrio tanto.

Una linda estrella, alumbro el camino
a los peregrinos que fueron a ver
a un divino Ser que dio a luz Maria,
un hermoso dia al amanecer.

Dios bendiga el Santo Nombre de Jesus
que murio en la cruz donde sufrio tanto.
Dios bendiga el Santo Nombre de Jesus
que murio en la cruz donde sufrio tanto.

El Niño Jesus segun fue creciendo
tambien fue adquiriendo saber y virtud
para darle luz a hombres sin conciencia
y por recompensa murio en una cruz.

Dios bendiga el Santo Nombre de Jesus
que murio en la cruz donde sufrio tanto.
Dios bendiga el Santo Nombre de Jesus
que murio en la cruz donde sufrio tanto.

 

 

Lo sacrificaron despiadadamente
tambien lo obligaron a cargar la cruz
y alli en el calvario sufrio amargamente
Dios bendiga el Santo Nobre de Jesus.

Dios bendiga el Santo Nombre de Jesus
que murio en la cruz donde sufrio tanto.
Dios bendiga el Santo Nombre de Jesus
que murio en la cruz donde sufrio tanto.
