Celebrating with Spicy Peppery Vegetable Pizzas:

A few years ago my family lost my Grandfather. He was the rock of our family and instilled so many of his beliefs and traditions in us, we soaked in his words and continue to possess them as our own. I think back to the stories of him telling us his first memories of stepping foot in Los Angeles as a young boy. He and his family had arrived by freight train and thought LA would be a good place to jump off. Only a few English words existed in his mostly Spanish vocabulary at the time, and he described the experience as ‘convivir’ the initial blending of his two worlds. He prospered here in Los Angeles, worked hard, bought a house and became a father of 8. Never forgetting his beautiful Mexican culture and wholeheartedly embracing his American life. This is how he raised his family, and I am forever grateful for my upbringing under his guidance.

Sugar Rush Meringue Cake inspired by Ralph Breaks The Internet.

I can not think of Disney’s ‘Ralph Breaks The Internet’ without thinking of Vanellope’s Sugar Rush game. When I picture being inside of Sugar Rush I imagine the combination of cake and candy coming together and living up to the term ‘eye candy.’ I imagine Sugar Rush Meringue Cake.

I’ve been dying to make a cinnamon rolls since Christmas time, but that thing called ‘life’ hasn’t allowed me the time to get the yeast rising.

Did you kickoff 2019 with a New Year’s resolution? Technically we are still at the very start of the 12 month period and resolutions are very much stable and rooted in our daily routines. But can we sustain them? My New Year’s Resolution was simple this year, eat outside more and incorporate more fruit into my diet.

Vegetarian French Onion Soup

Vegetarian French Onion Soup

Vegetarian French Onion Soup. It is heavenly to the palate and my absolute favorite soup ever.

There are certain dishes that were sacrificed when I transitioned into a vegetarian. I knew French Onion Soup would be on the list of beloved entrees I would depart with due to it’s beef broth content. I don’t know why I didn’t think of substituting the broth sooner and creating a Vegetarian French Onion Soup, one I could indulge in without the guilt.

Football shaped pretzels served with a delicious Mexican Beer Oaxaca Cheese Dip!

Like most people, the first thing I think about when hosting or being invited to a game day party is the food. To be honest, I don’t even know the rules of football or who plays on what team. I don’t care about half time, especially this year, and only a portion of the multi million famed commercials grab my attention. All I care about are the snacks.
