A Taste of Nostalgia: Kellogg’s Choco Zucaritas

Posted by: | 3 Comments

Last year a friend sent me a tweet with a picture of some Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes Choco Zucaritas she had found in a Mexican market in her city. She knew I would “get” the feeling of nostalgia and tinge of excitement to be able to buy in the U.S. a cereal we had eaten in Mexico. Then I read a post from Maura of The Other Side of the Tortilla about how excited she was that our very own TracyRead More ...

When Discovery Familia asked Roxana and I to work with them on a new project called ‘Blog de Bebés’ for their client, Dreft, I hesitated a little because I thought I wouldn’t be able to remember what it was to have a newborn baby in the house.

Arroz con Leche with Honey {Recipe}

Posted by: | 6 Comments

The one comfort food I crave when the temperature goes down or when I’m down with a cold is a warm bowl of arroz con leche. In El Salvador we eat arroz con leche warm and with a very watery consistency, more like a soup than a pudding. I remember it was the one thing I looked forward to when I got sick! Pastry Chef Luis Villavelazquez, the creator of the delicious recipe below, decided to take on the challengeRead More ...
