Queso fresco & huevos rancheros

She taste better than she looks, PROMISE!! I’m not really sure if I should call this huevos rancheros because it’s more of a chilaquiles with salsa roja instead of salsa verde AND the tortilla is fried, which I believe isn’t how they roll in México. Whatever it is, it’s bursting...

Southern Stuffed Cheese Nest

I’m not really sure what to say. It’s one of those recipes that leaves you speechless.  Sheer pride in every bite. I first saw the idea on the other side of the Atlantic a few months back. I finally caved when I had access to good soft cheese & canned...

Subtle changes

The idea of a morning routine was first introduced to me by my teacher Emily a few years back. Every Monday and Wednesday morning we’d practice yoga together on the terraza and many times she mentioned how her morning routine served her in such a way that it impacted her...

Mardi Gras celebrations at Nola!

Hola hola! How is everyone?  Cold?  Melting?  Happy with 2015 so far? Things are good here.  Other than the mosquitos! I swear they’re breeding in my apartment.  It’s actually something I’m trying to figure out.  They love my closets!!  And the kitchen.  What’s up with that?  Don’t they need to...
