I had the distinct honor and privilege of meeting Senator Marco Rubio a few months ago. I wrote about that today. 
(Also, I'm not looking for a political debate. I'm just telling my own story. Be kind.) http://bit.ly/1FGEu5b #MarcoRubio   #ANewAmericanCentury

I'm always saying "but that's not important right now." Today I took the time to make a list of all the things that ARE important to me right now. #mybigfatcubanfamily  
I really am so very grateful that I have so many wonderful opportunities come my way. I seriously get to go to some fun places and do really fun things. Like that time I went to Pixar and Skywalker Ranch. (I told you. Insufferable.) But my real life moves at a much slower and more reasonable pace. I still make dinner every night (mostly) and have mountains of laundry to do each week, but that's not important right now. What is important right now...

What do you get your mother when she turns 101? Here's Luza on her 101st birthday. Isn't she beautiful? 
I came up with a very meaningful and delicious gift. 
Buen Provecho!

Getting my hands dirty. New post ‪#‎ontheblog‬ today. Tips on prepping my summer garden. #ad #mijardinalidad
I love my garden. I love getting my hands dirty as I plant and re-pot and freshen my flower beds. It's not that I don't own gardening gloves. I do. Multiple pairs. But there's something magical and healing about feeling the soil on my hands and touching the roots as I gently press the plants I'm re-potting into their new larger containers. And the movement of the fresh, brown earth slipping through my fingers is practically a religious experience...

Bacon. Guava. Cream Cheese. Bites. You're welcome. #FarmlandGameTimeRecipes

This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Farmland® and Latina Bloggers Connect. But, of course, all opinions are my own. Recipe Development - let’s discuss this for a moment. When I hear the term, “Recipe Development,” I think of scientist types in an expansive, pristine kitchen, clothed in white lab coats and safety goggles. Because “Recipe Development," you see, is probably something that's best left to the professionals. At least t...

Story
Tagline
I'm Marta. Blogger. Mother. Documentor of Life. Cooker of Cuban Food. Wearer of Red Lipstick.
Introduction
Hola! My name is Marta Maria Darby, and I am passionate about telling stories.

Designer, blogger, Cuban cook, scrapbooker, photographer and mother of four, I wear many hats which may or may not include seasonal fruit (but that’s not important right now). I have been blogging for seven years - sharing my life, my culture, my family, and my recipes in my own Cuban-American style.

I tell the stories of my extraordinarily ordinary Cuban-American life. I believe in celebrating the “everyday.” Often. And well.
