Are you nuts?!

I love (most) nut butters! Who is the genius that decided to ground up nuts into creamy goodness? That would be C.H. Sumner introduced peanut butter to the world at the Universal Exposition in St. Louis! I wish I had a time machine to shake that hand. Growing up PB&J (peanut butter and jelly) was…

Zen Zone-Yoga & Vegetarianism

Junk food covers a lot of bases from cakes to cookies and  from pizza to white pasta . This blog will offer healthier alternatives for all…

My family cooked traditional Puerto Rican foods such as arroz con gandules (rice and pigeon peas), pernil (roasted pork shoulder), pastilles (or empanadas) and bistec encebollado (Beef and onions) just to name a few!
