Last night I had three of my cousins over for dinner and wine, a pre new years celebration. I was absolutely thrilled to have them over because I got to cook for them homemade Chicken Empanadas, Insalata Caprese, Cilantro Quinoa Salad along with a fabulous cheese spread to compliment the Pink Moscato my cousin Veronica brought over. I also made this delicious my own adaption to the Four Ingredient Vegan Pumpkin Pie! My pie was crustless and oh-so delicious!
