Growing Up with Two Dads

With my Dad Francisco, in August 2002, after baptizing my first son.
I was blessed growing up with two Dads. My Dad Gustavo who I'm a clone of, and my Dad Francisco, who raised me. He was my Mom’s second husband and I lived with him from the time I was 4 until I was 12. The funny thing is I began to call him Dad when I was 15. I guess I wanted to honor him and every time I called him Dad I was really telling him "I love you".

My First Gastro Tour: The Kitchen Hop Coral Gables Edition

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.

Time to Celebrate National Waffle Day at Love Is Blind

                                                                                                                                                                                  Photo: courtesy of Love Is Blind

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.

Best Breakfast Ever: Quinoa with Berries and Maple Syrup

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.

Why I Stand For Israel

                                                                                                                                                                                 Photo Karen Lapco-Dombey
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.
