Sugar Skull Rice Krispies Treats {Recipe}

Today I want to share a Holiday that is very dear to my heart, Dia de Los Muertos. A time to reflect on the loved ones we have lost, celebrate their lives and rejoice in knowing their legacy will be carried on with our children. Our family celebrates this yearly tradition with a weeklong celebration of honoring our loved ones with a family altar. In our altar we showcase favorite family photos of our departed, papel picado, candy skulls, flowersRead More ...

Easy and Fun Catrina Rice Krispies Treat Pops {Recipe}

Dia de Muertos is a very special holiday for us.  We spend the week prior setting up an altar for my grandparents, searching for cempazuchitl (marigolds), papel picado, making sugar skulls and preparing a mole dinner while we reminisce the joyful times we lived with my grandparents.

5 Ideas to Make Breakfast Easy

Now that we’re in full swing with our new life as parents of a kindergartener, we’re readjusting many of our daily routines — or lack of them, in some cases — to better accommodate the new needs of our girl. Before, we could take more time in the mornings and didn’t feel pressured to have to arrive on time to preschool every day.

AppleCake Sandwiches {Recipe}

Mott’s used to have this funny commercial on T.V. in the 80′s where a group of children were dressed as secret agents and spoke in hushed tones to one another via walkie talkies saying “I got the Motts?” It made the viewer feel like those kids had their hands around the best kept secret in town. That’s exactly how I felt when I imagined up AppleCake Sandwiches as an afternoon snack for my little one. The truth of the matterRead More ...

Avocado, Arugula and Cheese Naan {Recipe}

If there’s one staple food in my house it would have to be avocados from Mexico. Seriously, I kid you not that we eat at least one or two avocados every single day. In fact, it was one of my girl’s first foods and still one she will hardly ever refuse. Of course, it warms my heart because avocados are so rich in nutrients and at age 5 she’s such a picky eater that anything healthy and nutritious she’ll takeRead More ...

Mediterranean Veggie Sandwich

Sandwiches are one of my favorite inventions in the world. You can pretty much carry around any food you like (except soup and ice cream!) inside two loaves of bread, and enjoy it wherever you happen to be, and whenever you feel like it. Gotta love it! One of the things I like the most about sandwiches, is that they allow you to conceal, in a way, and enjoy without judgement, things that you wouldn’t usually eat on their own,Read More ...
