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 ...

La miel or honey is one of my favorite ingredients from La Madre Tierra.

Frozen Berry Paletas {Recipe}

Are you melting in the summer heat?  Stay cool with these fruity frozen treats that are a whole lot cheaper then store bought ones and healthy too! I have visited countries in Central America and South America and one thing that stands out to me the most is all of the yummy tropical fruta that you can find at the market or on the streets.  Fruit vendors selling large cups of sliced juicy mango, fresa, guayaba, sandia, mora…. with limeRead More ...

Quick and Yummy Snack To Love: Dipped Strawberries

Parents can all relate to the picky-eaters stages we confront with our kids. One day they love this, the next day they can´t stand the sight of it. You stock up on a particular snack just to see it come back untouched in the lunchbox. You keep trying and getting creative but nothing seems to stick. At least that´s how it rolls in my house with my girl. However, there´s a few fruits we can pretty much always count onRead More ...
