Happy summer! Are you trying to find ideas to entertain your children? How about coordinating a philanthropic effort as a family? I recently partnered with Land O’Lakes whose tagline is ADD A LITTLE GOOD™. As you know, I believe in enjoying all the foods I love, but in moderation, and when Land O’Lakes shared their …

I recently returned from visiting my hometown of El Paso. My recent trips have been work related with book signings, TV segments, or hosting an event, so it was nice to go this time and just enjoy it. I visited lots of family, which warmed my heart. As you can imagine I also ate quite a …

Have you ever tasted tamarindo? My mom sold tamarindo candy in our family’s neighborhood grocery store and all the barrio kids loved it, but I was not a fan. But I am a fan of agua de tamarindo. Agua de tamarino is sweet and tangy – my hubby describes it as sweet tea with lemon. …

Father’s Day is dedicated to giving back to our dads that do so much for us throughout the year. Since my dad is in El Paso, I’m treating my hubby and what a better way to show him how much I appreciate him then to cook him up something delicious. This dish is meaty that …

Do you ever really need an excuse to eat chocolate? I know I don’t. This cake is absolutely decadent with hints of coffee combined with a filling and topping of roasted blueberries and blackberries. This chocolate cake is masculine and feminine all in one amazing bite. Whether you want to make this for Father’s Day …

These chile rellenos are made with roasted poblano peppers filled with Oaxaca cheese and then dipped in a fluffy egg batter and deep-fried. Serve smothered in sauce, with a sprinkling of queso fresco and cilantro. This dish is traditional and authentic Mexican food at its finest.

Nachos are a favorite in my home. We usually make nachos whenever we have grilled meat or shredded chicken leftovers. This recipe is made with ground turkey making these nachos simple to make any day of the week. The best part is they only take 20 minutes to make and I guarantee your family will …

My favorite part about grilling is less mess in the kitchen. I love grilling season and these spiced pork and peaches on a stick is a grilled recipe that’s perfect for summer. Pork tenderloin is cut into cubes and brushed in a sauce made of chipotle chiles and citrus juices. Skewered on a skewer with …

I get bored of traditional green salads and especially hate salad leftovers. But this salad tastes even better the longer it sits. You can toss it with the dressing and it won’t wilt, like lettuce does. This salad is unique with some of my favorite ingredients combined together. The jicama is sweet and crisp and pairs …

I saw a video for shrimp boil in foil on facebook and couldn’t resist remaking a similar recipe. The original recipe called for shrimp, Andouille sausage, red potatoes, and corn. In my version I omitted the potatoes and added mushrooms and asparagus as well as slices of limes, fresh cilantro, and chili powder for a …

These were the tacos I grew up eating – my grandma would make them at least two to three times a month. These crispy corn shells are not from a box. They are made with soft corn tortillas formed into half-moon shapes, then lightly fried until crunchy but somewhat pliable. The filling is called picadillo …

When I was a little girl I used to love to watch my grandma cook — I especially loved watching her make homemade flour tortillas everyday. If there were ever any tortillas leftover after dinner, my grandma and I would slather a warm tortilla with requesón (ricotta cheese) and drizzle it with miel pura (honey) …

Buzzy Bee preschool is a great preschool. I started there when I was 2 1/2 years old and now I'm in the 7th grade and an A student. Buzzy Bee preschool taught me a lot when I was there, Ms. Sonia taught me Spanish, numbers, how to write my name, and the alphabet. When I was four my parents took me to kindergarten for a test to see if I can attend school and I passed thanks to Buzzy Bee preschool and Ms. Sonia. At Buzzy Bee there are a lot of toys donated by past students and outside there is a fun play ground for the kids to play on. Now when I do not have school I sometimes go to Ms. Sonia's to help her with the kids and all of them are so smart. There is a 3 year old who knows how to write her name all by herself. All the kids have very good manners like please and thank you and table manners. Overall Buzzy Bee preschool is a great school for little kids. From: Maya
