Christine with the goods from Porto's.
Who are these Cubans and what is their secret?
Christine arrived at the house fresh from her trip to Palm Springs with a small box from Porto's Bakery in tow. I had never heard of Porto's and Christine was quite passionate about their stuff so I had to give it a try. Inside were Porto's most cherished item: the Refugiado which, I'm guessing, means "refugee" in Spanish. Whatever the true meaning, it only means one thing to me: delicious or sabroso.
Strudel filled with guava and cream cheese. Good Lord, it's amazing. I want to chow down on it hard. Very hard. I don't know how we're going to make it to dinner with all these side snacks...
