If you follow my page closely, then you know I am a music girl. It’s a big part of my world and it’s also a great way to get to know a person. People who are absolutely impassioned by melody surround themselves with others of the same interest. This attraction usually leads to hours of music banter. I love when I get caught up in a storm of musical stories… Listening to how certain songs came to be or changed someone’s path completely.(more…)

A few weeks ago I was making Tortillas Con Huevo and casually shared them on my Instagram Stories. As I was adding in the eggs to my already crispy tortilla pieces I remembered an incident that had happened many moons ago. My uncle’s friend had come over to our house in City Terrace and asked upon stepping into our casa “Are you guys cooking Tortillas Con Huevo?” He said it like he wasn’t sure if that’s what it’s called, almost with a puzzled look on his face. In that instant I realized this thrown together heavenly breakfast is nameless.(more…)

I’m not one to toot my own horn, but these Mexican Chocolate Tres Leches Cupcakes are so divinely delicious, they deserve to be celebrated by ALL this holiday season! I was shopping the Hispanic aisle at Walmart and spied a box of NESTLÉ® ABUELITA sitting next to NESTLÉ® LA LECHERA® . It was like all the pieces of the puzzle came together at once in my mind and I thought I should make a batch of Abuelita Chocolate Tres Leches cupcakes. I wanted that unmistakable taste of authentic Mexican hot chocolate with a unique cinnamon touch for my Tres Leches cupcakes. Then I quickly thought of the creamy consistency, and sweet, luscious texture of La Lechera sweetened condensed milk and knew this would be my milk base. I made individual cupcakes for easy packaging and sharing with loved ones over the holidays, because ultimately that’s what it’s all about!(more…)
Potato Chip Mac and Cheese is the recipe my friends have been requesting since before I even started my website. This is the one I turn to when I wanna overindulge. It’s holiday table worthy and extraordinary for an ‘any-day’ food hug. This recipe has a way of making you feel like you just chatted with your oldest friend. I pull out of my hat when I’m feeling a need for pure comfort or a bowl of cheesy happiness that words just can’t pinpoint….. I’d much rather let my potato chip mac and cheese say it for me, and it does.(more…)
I was racking my head on how I could make Thanksgiving 2020 a nice experience for my family. My son is obviously disappointed that our annual trip to my cousin’s house for a feast is cancelled this year. I told him it’s a small sacrifice the whole country is making to save lives. I also promised him I would organize a zoom or facetime dessert meeting on Thanksgiving with the rest of our family. For some reason that still didn’t feel good enough for him. Then I suggested I write a recipe for a Dulce De Leche Pumpkin Pie and send it to all my family members so they could make it in their homes and we could eat our pies together virtually. My boy and extended family loved that idea and we are going to bring it to life this Thanksgiving.(more…)
