The Lent season has begun. Beginning on Ash Wednesday (this year on February 14) and ending on Holy Thursday, it is 40 Days of reflection and spiritual preparation prior to the Easter celebration.  I grew up observing the Lenten season.  This included fasting, prayer and almsgiving.

Happy Valentine’s Day!  How do you celebrate it? We tend to stay home and spend time together as a family.  Sometimes we celebrate with a special homemade dinner and a fun dessert as a sweet ending to our meal.

Fresas con Crema Gelatina

February 13, 2018

Do you like fresas con crema?  If you do, then this dessert is for you!  Known as gelatina mosaico, or gelatin mosaic style, this fun dessert is tasty and beautiful.  In light of Valentine’s Day this week, I decided to make my very own version of gelatina mosaico.  I made it with red strawberry gelatin and a milky mixture to give it the crema taste we all love.

Blaze Pizza and Daiya Team Up to Bring You Gluten Free Vegan Pizza

February 7, 2018

If you love Blaze pizza like me, you know that their pizzas are always top-of-the-line-tasty because they are made with the freshest ingredients.  I’ve been a fan since the restaurant opened.  One of those reasons why I am devoted to Blaze Pizza is because they are taking pizza back to its roots, with dough made from scratch, cooked with fire.  Its secret dough recipe was created by Chef Brad Kent (pictured below), one of the top Zagat-rated pizza chefs in America.

Orejitas

This year, I’ve become an avid tea drinker. I promised myself that in the new year, I would create a routine that would involve tea and a good book. If it’s right before bedtime or early in the morning, I’ve found it very easy to incorporate in my daily activities. One of my New Year’s resolutions was to read at least 40 books in 2018. I think I will meet that goal with the help of a nice cup of tea by my side.

A few years ago, when I was a new mom, I’d stop to drop off my 5-month old son at my aunt’s house before heading to work.  My maternity leave was over and my cousin offered to take care of my son during the time I was at work.

Breakfast Sopes

January 19, 2018

Sopes aren’t just for lunch or dinner any more.  We can now have them for breakfast!  Sounds way too time consuming, am I right? Let’s be real here.  Who in their right mind wants to spend hours early in the morning making breakfast sopes?  Well, hear me out.  What if I told you that these sopes in particular will only take you about 30 minutes to prepare?  Yes, it’s possible.

I am back from a quick winter break and I am so ready to start 2018.  I have many project ideas swirling around my head for the new year, that I need to have a day to just sit and organize my thoughts.  Exciting times ahead.
