As you can see this week I have gone all Spanish, I think its all this nice sunshine. I have always been a desert type of person so if I go out for dinner it does not matter how full I am after my main, ill always look at the desert menu. One thing I do like as a desert is Churros which are Spanish doughnuts. They are always good and satisfy my sweet tooth. I decided that with all this sunshine I was need of some good churros. I hunted the internet for a good recipe and found one that I had good reviews.
The thing with churro recipes online is that there are many different recipes some that have eggs and some that don’t therefore you have to just try the recipe and see what you think. I found the recipe to work for me and give me churros that I wanted.
