The holiday season is here and if you are hosting any get-togethers I promise this is the appetizer you have to make.

My grandmas home in El Paso was a small three bedroom home with lots of fruit trees in the backyard—apple, apricot, peach, and membrillo (quince) just to name a few. When apples were in season my grandma would sit for hours peeling piles of apples to make warm apple pies and empanadas. She would make …

Turkey day is near!!!
I think I blinked and missed October. I’m embarrassed to admit that my Halloween decorations never made it up this year. I was so focused on prepping for Dia de los Muertos that Halloween just came and went. And now, as we all know Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Speaking of Thanksgiving, we all …

#DIY  Just in time for Christmas!
Every time I make tamales I stare at the leftover pile of corn husks and think … one day I’m going to make a festive craft with them. But, as we all know the holiday’s fly by and my creative crafting ideas never happen. This year thankfully my PIC (partner in crafting), Kirsten came up …

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
