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.

I’m still in the mood for legume salads. One, brings the other.

I was fortunate to be raised by my grandmother. To me, that meant, among other things, eating delicious food. Not only mi abuelita was a great cook: she had a PhD in cooking a myriad of recipes with the most simple and common ingredients.

A few months ago I tried almond milk. The “only 30 calories” per cup package at the grocery smiled to me.
My first surprise was to realize that when you drink cow's milk, you’re also consuming sugar. Obviously, I never paid attention to Jamie Oliver. Cow’s milk, whole, with only 2% of fat or skim, has sugar added. With almond milk you have the option to buy it sweetened, in which case it contains 90 calories per cup, and natural, containing only 30 calories per cup!
