Like in Sinatra’s song, I would say 2013 was a very good year. It taught me that great things never came out of comfort zones. To live and feel alive, you need to get out. And risk. And take chances. It may be hard and uncomfortable, but at the end, the results are worth it.

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.
