Gift idea alert! A couple weeks ago I went on a bender making empanadas! My inspiration? When I was in New York at the Casa Latina Home Expo recently, I met Hipatia Lopez, the inventor of the Empanada Fork ($20.00)! Did you just think, what the heck is that? So did I! Until she sent me one to use and one to give away here! I love meeting other women who are passionate about turning their ideas into action. Hipatia did just that. She says she came up with idea after making dozens of empanadas for the holidays. Normally, you use a fork to make the impressions around the pastry. Bu she came up with a tool that makes it so much easier! Hence, the Empanada Fork! Here is a demo video.
