How My Kids Made Me a Better Person

This post is part of a sponsored campaign with DiMe Media and Pampers
All the opinions expressed are mine.
If something changed my life forever and, more importantly, for the better, was having my two children. My 14-year old, Andrés Ignacio, was the one who made me a mom against all odds. I've always called him my first miracle, and he's blessed my life in ways that I never would have dreamed of.

That being said, it wasn't until my second son, Tomás Eugenio, was born, that I felt my life completely changed: it was love at first sight as soon as I locked eyes with that precious boy. I remember kissing him and thinking, as I held his little body in my arms, that I wouldn't be able to live without him.

Shrimp Tacos with Hot Sauce is brought to you by DiMe Media and TabascoThank you for supporting the brands Savoir Faire collaborates with, so I can keep

Shrimp tacos with hot sauce. When I was invited to participate in Tabasco's #TaquizaTabasco campaign, I thought of Tabasco's chipotle sauce, one of my all-time favorites, and the one that turned me on to the power of a smoky jalapeño flavor.

My first thought was empanadas: some stuffed with black beans, others with shredded beef, and some with white cheese. I wanted to serve them with guasacaca, mojo, and alioli, with each sauce containing touches of Tabasco: garlic, habanero and, of course, chipotle.

Passion Fruit Mojito

Passion fruit mojito. It's Friday. I've had a few weeks now where I feel like a disgruntled employee waiting for the weekend, waiting for Friday since early Wednesday, and wanting to get a drink. Strike that: wanting to get a mojito, with a lot of ice, spearmint, and passion fruit juice. Don't lie and tell me such an acidic sharp-tasting fruit wasn't born to be blended together with a good rum.

Arepas Filled with Tuna Salad and Mayonnaise

Arepas filled with tuna salad and mayonnaise. Ever since Abel came into our life, arepas have become a daily fixture of our table. When I say daily, I mean DAILY: when we don't eat arepas for breakfast, we eat them for dinner.

Toasting My Girlfriends (With Bailey's Irish Cream)

For my dear friends, my true soul mates, for always being there 
when I needed them you know who you are.
I am a firm believer in the healing power of women friendship. It's in these friendships where I've found solace, cradling, protection, pampering, counseling, and encouragement. I've always been blessed with wonderful girlfriends, and I've never taken them for granted because, for better or worse, they've always been by my side. That is, of course, until I moved to the U.S., and had to live in California surrounded by men.

Welcome August!

Welcome August! Month of grilling and one-dish meals, gazpacho, tinto de verano and mojitos —though I think this year will be caipirinhas and batidas just because of the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
