dia de los muertos

Day of the Dead… It’s that time again… when other people are getting on their Halloween costumes, we are planning our Day of the Dead meal and preparations. This year we have a much smaller ofrenda (altar) that we created but thought it was worth sharing. Usually, we have photos and moments of all those that have passed with things that remind us of them and foods that they loved.

To celebrate their spirits, we made a Mexican feast and created some of the most delicious Mexican spice cookies, inspired by our Death by Chocolate day of Kitchen Chemistry.  In America we don’t have traditions that celebrate those who passed in such a festive way. Over the years, it has become one of our favorite times to reflect on our friends and ancestors that are no longer with us!
