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.

This is the perfect time for light, fresh meals that can be prepared outside, and that are bursting with life and color. A few weeks ago I gave you my mom’s recipe for a grilled chicken with a latin-loving salad made of beans, plantains, avocado, and jalapeno peppers. That recipe got me inspired to have a grilling session of my own, using anotherRead More ...

Salmon Tacos with Strawberry and Pineapple Salsa {Recipe}

  The summer season is here and there is a lot to celebrate!  Father’s Day is right around the corner, Independence Day thereafter and many outdoor cooking get-togethers with friends and family will take over back yards in the next few months.

Fun and Easy Pumpkin Pie Pops {Recipe}

Have the niños take part in your family’s Thanksgiving dinner preparation this year.   Pumpkin pie pops are a great spin-off of the traditional pumpkin pie dessert we all love to indulge in after the big dinner. Not only are they fun and easy for little hands to assemble, but require very few ingredients to create.  Because everything is ten times more fun on a stick, think of  this autumn treat as circular empanaditas on a stick. Arrange them inRead More ...
