  • Olive Oil Cupcakes

    Olive Oil Cupcakes

    Do you have a favorite dessert when you offer to bring one to a gathering (remember those?)? This recipe is my go-to option. Pre-COVID I used to bake a whole cake and sprinkle it with powder sugar and decorate it with a sprig of my olive tree. It looked beautiful. Today, instead I make cupcakes,…

  • Easy and Delicious Frittata

    Easy and Delicious Frittata

    Whenever I host brunches or Vision Board Workshops my go-to recipe is a frittata. It is very easy to make, serve, plus it’s beautiful to present. Ingredients are things you usually have in your fridge and pantry, and there are dozens of combinations you can use.   Ingredients Olive oil (2-3 TBS) 8 Large eggs…

  • Cookies in a Jar

    Cookies in a Jar

    I’ve always tried to find cute party favors that don’t end up in the trash. It saddens me when they get a bag full of little plastic toys that give kids joy for a second and then end up hidden in the backseat of your car, forgotten and, eventually, in the trash. We’ve given jumping…

  • Greek Yogurt Pie With Granola Crust

    Greek Yogurt Pie With Granola Crust

    I’ve had this recipe for ages and every time I make it, it never disappoints. It is the perfect brunch dessert dish if you ask me. It tries to be healthy but truthfully it isn’t. But in its defense, it’s fresh, not too sweet and made with Greek yogurt, granola, and topped with fruit, so…

    My Favorite Cooking Blogs

    Hi! I remember from a very, very young age my love for baking and cooking. I went to cooking summer camps and tested my recipes with friends and family. I particularly remember a recipe of vanilla and coke jello (gagging now) and I want to publicly acknowledge all the brave souls who tried it. As…

  • Peach Pie

    Peach Pie

    Drum roll, please! If you’ve read my bio on Instagram, the last statement is that I make a killer apple pie. I do, I am sorry to brag. It hasn’t happened overnight, though. I’ve been practicing for many, many years. I have many stories about making pie, undercooked dough, tasteless peaches or apples, burnt crust;…

  • Enchiladas Verdes (casserole version)

    Enchiladas Verdes (casserole version)

    This is a lighter version of the original enchiladas where the tortilla is fried (!!), filled with chicken and then covered with salsa verde and topped with queso fresco. In my mom’s kitchen, they prepare them that way, one by one; it takes a lot of time and not to mention the calorie count if you fry the tortilla….

  • Pastel Azteca aka Vegetarian Enchilada

    Pastel Azteca aka Vegetarian Enchilada

    Here’s a funny story about this dish. I think it was my second year living in LA when I hosted a baby shower for my friend Begoña and I made a Mexican breakfast. Her guests were mostly Americans so I  wrote little signs next to each platter so they knew what they were about to eat. For this casserole,…

  • Sangría

    Ok, ok, ok. I know that Sangria is not a Mexican drink but it’s festive and fresh, and I  wanted to post the recipe for all of you that want to have an easy, fruity drink for your 5 de Mayo gather. What you need:  1 bottle of red wine (not your cheapest, not your…
