There are some recipes that I feel don’t require a recipe. For example, this recipe is very simple to make and doesn’t seem like it qualifies as a recipe. But, then again, I have to remember that some folks don’t cook or are not comfortable in the kitchen and a dish as simple as scrambled …

How to Host a Taquiza + Chipotle Beef Tacos
When I host a party I usually go overboard when it comes to the menu. I get caught up on what to serve for an appetizer, main course, side, drink, and dessert and rarely get to sit and enjoy the event. While in Oaxaca we visited a mercado and ate lunch at a taquiza – …

Breakfast is the most challenging meal for me to make. We are usually rushing out the door in the mornings so more often than not I prepare something quick. My kids go through phases when it comes to breakfast dishes. Sometimes all they want is pancakes or waffles and other times its cereal or scrambled …

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. …

I’m kind of freaking out – July is almost over, which means summer is almost over, and my kiddos will soon have to return to school. I think it’s just starting to hit me that our daughter will be a freshman in high school. And our son will be a third grader. Where did the years …

I am so inspired after my trip to Oaxaca and I’m not even sure where to begin. It was a Mexican culinary dream come true. I’ll be sure to write a full blog post all about it, but for now I wanted to share one of my inspirations…salsas. The food was so amazing in Oaxaca …

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 …

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
