Tostones Chimichurri Sliders ( Chimi Sliders)

Where do I begin!? I have been MIA since February! How insane!? I will be doing a sweet cup of Ambar sometime this week promise! I have SO much to tell you guys and it would be too much to talk about on this post. This RECIPE though!? In the Dominican Republic, there is a burger called Chimichurri Burger AKA Chimi. It’s our street food! There are many restaurants and food trucks that sell it here in the US. Oh! And they are usually found outside of clubs. Why you may ask? So that all of the people who are probably intoxicated can devour one of these amazing burgers! I decided to mix things up. Fuck the bun, let’s make it even more Dominican by replacing the buns with Fried Plantains! They are easy to make and taste delicious! A little fatting but no one has to know!

FYI I’m trying to make instructions for recipes easier. I numbered each step instead of making it into a big paragraph. I hope this helps make cooking easier for you guys. Enjoy!!!


Oven Fried Chicken

I should totally be working right now but fuck it! Hello everyone! UGH, I miss #cookitgirl sooooo bad! I want to just go straight to this recipe. Trust me, you will be cooking this at least 4 times a month that is why I don’t want to waste any time.  

This flavorful Oven Fried Chicken is a MUST in my house. I cook it several times a month! My husband LOVES it! It’s super spicy (or not spicy if you want it plain) and it is full of all types of spices! This is a quick dinner option that can be served with corn, rice, mashed potatoes or pasta on the side. The possibilities are endless! It does take 50 minutes to bake, but the crispiness of the chicken will be worth the wait!


Canoas De Platano Maduro ( Sweet Plantain and Ground Beef Boats)


I’m alive. Yes. This is true. I’m sure at this point you guys are so tired of me saying, it’s been a very, very long time. This time, it’s been longer than other times I’ve disappeared. This time, it was for an amazing reason. I had to focus all my time and energy into my business. I finally left my terrible 9-5 and started working my business full time at home! I had times I literally cried because I missed Cook It Girl soooo much! This is my hobby and not being able to do it was not fun at all. I posted a potato salad three ways recipe video about 2 weeks ago and it was a recipe I recorded early this year! So, yea, it’s been a long-ass time. I can’t even put into words how excited I was to record this amazing recipe. I totally bought too many sweet plantains and found myself wondering what I was going to do with all of them. Then I remembered this sweet and salty recipe and recorded it…….

Arepas Puertorriqueñas Fritas


I have been eating these amazing Arepas (fried dough) since I was a little girl. My grandmother would fry them for my family and me every time she would come down to Miami to visit. Finally, I grew up and decided to try to make them myself but come to find out my grandmother didn’t have a recipe for it. She would eye the ingredients and say “put a little bit of this and a little bit of that” which doesn’t work out for us lol so I decided to take her “little bit of this and little bit of that” and try to make a recipe out of it. It literally took me like 3 tries! But I finally got it! Please enjoy a holiday recipe that has turned into a whenever I want to make the recipe at my home! I dip them in coffee or have them on the side of Asopao, Soup or dipped in condensed milk. Oh yea, no need to imagine it, just cook it! Soft in the inside and crispy on the outside! So delicious…
