Yesterday was my sister's 17th birthday. And to deviate from the usual meal celebrations, my little sister just wanted some home-made Special Empanada (meat pie) to give to her friends.
This batch of Special Empanada is made by our dearest dad. Using a recipe handed down for generations, it is the meatiest, juiciest and crunchiest meat pie I had ever tasted.
Inside the special crust are the oozing meat fillings -- pork, shrimp, mushrooms, potatoes and veggies. And although I'm not a big meat pie eater, I can't get enough of my dad's very filling Special Empanada which usually replaces my lunch and even dinner.
As much as I am a hefty eater, I was never the talented cook in the family even when having an iron chef of a dad, and a great cooking mom. But while making this batch of Special Empanada, I'm glad my dad finally taught me the recipe. (It'll probably take a year of practice for me to perfect it though!)

How about you, do you have any family-handed down recipes?
