Today is my son Tomás Eugenio’s birthday. He’s finally turning 10 and like his mom, he’s a sweet lover. So, I made these coconut macaroons that he adores. They evoke flavors of my childhood: we used to have cocadas (coconut smoothies), besitos de coco (coconut kisses?) and coquitos (candied coconut.) These macaroons are not only delicious, but super easy to make. I hope you like my recipe.

It has been a while since I wanted to make this salad. I first saw it, a couple of years ago, canned in glass jars in Costco. More recently, my Twitter friend Radha, a journalist and cook, like me, sent me a picture of a similar one made by her in Caracas.

Researching about Latin American recipes (for the Hispanic Heritage Month at Mamás Latinas) I found this cocktail and I have to say, it smiled to me… It’s named El Macuá, after a homonymous Central American bird. Since 2006, after a competition sponsored by Flor de Caña rum, El Macuá is Nicaragua’s national cocktail.
