My friend Pilar, from the blog En mi cocina hoy, made this book with her friends from Chile. It is beautiful, full of gorgeous pictures and delicious recipes.

I chose to show this recipe as it is elegant enough for this time of year but super easy. It is the kind of recipe you just put a few ingredients together and totally forget about it. I’m pretty sure you will enjoy it as much as us.

Beautiful. What a great looking and healthy dessert, perfect for the holidays. What kind of red wine did you use? Does it matter?
