This vegetarian muffuletta is all you’ll need to SCORE big with your friends and family this Super Bowl Sunday!! I used my own homemade sourdough bread, but as a time saver you can buy a loaf at your favorite bakery. I also made the most tasty olive salad to enclose my sandwich fillings. I say feel free to stack up your sandwich with whatever your heart desires. I listed the ingredients I used below.

Did you know it’s #paletaweek ? Yup. Fun right!?! I decided to join in on the lively celebration  and shake things up a bit with a 21 and over version for the adults. 

I’m calling my creations Margarita Enchiloso Paletas! I made a chile lime tequila ice pop to enjoy when you want to get boozy on a stick. If it’s been an extra hard day, make it a double with a shot of tequila on the side. I dipped the tip of my spiked paletas in a mixture of salt sugar tajin and crushed chile peppers! Perfect for a summer night cap or day drinking.

Are you SUMMER ready? I love the warm weather and more than loving the warm weather, I love the grilling season that comes with it. I enjoy the whole process of grilling. Choosing the freshest produce; bringing my vegetables home; and making a simple marinade of olive oil, lime juice, MAGGI® Vegetable Bouillon, pepper, and garlic. I feel like the bouillon gives my marinade all the flavor it needs for an extra special grilling day.

I live in Los Angeles, one of the largest food meccas in the world.  LA is a melting pot of flavors and is known for an endless combination of fusions. I love that I can hop in my car and reach any type of cuisine within a few minutes. These experiences have carved out a little niche in my culinary heart and help inspire my own home-cooked fusion cuisine.  My most treasured Asian-Latin fusion dishes I make is Soy Chorizo Fried Rice.

Best Dark Sweet Cherry Pie: Perfect for ANY occasion.

This is a true story. My aunt Hope is the lead singer of a band named Mazzy Star. Recently she and her band were playing a few nights here in Los Angeles, and then on to Mexico City. I was really excited about the gigs and wanted to find a way to celebrate the concerts through food. I kicked a few ideas around in my mind before settling on The Best Dark Sweet Cherry Pie. This isn’t a name I thought of but I’ll get to that later in the story.
