The Kitchen Hop is a great project: in movement and in progress! And I cannot wait for the next crawl. Could the next adventure be Wynwood? Hopefully! Yesterday I had the opportunity to sample food in six of the 10 participating restaurants in this unique gastro-tour in Coral Gables.

Here I come again.
You may be thinking that I'm not cooking anymore. Actually, I'm cooking more than ever. Besides having my recipes posted on Mamás Latinas on a daily basis, starting this September they are going to also be seen on Orgullosa, a blog for Latino women in the U.S. Can you feel that I'm happy?
I'm not pretending to be the next Anton Ego in town, either. But I'm discovering the gastronomique wonders of vibrant, hot and spicy Miami and it drives me to share what I'm tasting and experiencing. Sometimes that can be as much fun as creating a new recipe from scratch.

A couple of nights ago, I went to Seasons 52 in Coral Gables, as an amuse-bouche of what is big feast to come on Saturday, August 23rd, when The Kitchen Hop takes over Miracle Mile.

I am in a quinoa mood lately. So, whatever excuse is a good one to make something with this super food. But this time the "excuse" is more a "reason", than an excuse. Or a trio of reasons. A trio of one of the finest maple syrup ever, sent to me by Crown Maple Syrup.

The following reflection is the result of the discussion I had with my kids this weekend for them to understand what is happening in the Middle East and why I’m sick of Hamas protest rallies right across from the Israeli Consulate in Downtown Miami (as well as other U.S. cities) and why I am horrified with the very disturbing spray-painted swastikas in a North Miami synagogue.
What we are seeing is the clash between civilization and barbarism, between the rational and the primitive, between progress and backwardness, between freedom and oppression, between democracy and dictatorship, between human rights and those who violate them systematically as a way of life, among those who treat women as human beings and those who treat them like beasts, among those who build and those who destroy.
