Ups! Disclaimer


Well, Spring Break is over for both my children who are still in school. It was very nice to have them home. I had them one at the time, so I could spoil them individually. I don’t like this, I rather have my full family at the same time. But that’s how it works and I can’t do anything about it. I missed my oldest son who is racing in Europe (he is a professional cyclist) but he doesn’t have spring breaks anymore, I won’t see him until the summer, but he is very good at keeping in touch with e-mails, texts and FaceTime calls.

Anyway, when my children where home, they both told me (separately) how in my posts I have mishaps, grammar and spelling errors, and phrases that they can see I am translating from spanish and they don’t write them like that in english. We where laughing and laughing! I was defending my writing and they where trying to make me understand that they don’t say it that way in english much less write it. I speak spanish to all my family, I don’t want my children to forget their spanish, besides, it feels awkward to talk to them in english. English is my second language and I still speak more spanish than english on a daily basis.

Then, just two days ago, I was talking to my oldest son, and turns out he was correcting me too!!! So then I tought that they MUST be right!!

After laughing for a little bit, I kept thinking, am I such a bad writer? I hope not, and hope you can understand my ideas and my recipes. So… I truly apologize for all the dumb things I’ve written and might still write! Just laugh with me and not about me, and thank you for still follow me 🙂


Light Black Cod



Last night I prepared this light dinner for my daughter who is going back to school, her spring break is over. It was lovely to have here at home with us. Now it is my son’s turn. It is so sad that their vacation is always in different weeks. But that’s the way it is and I am happy that I get the chance to spoil them for a little bit. Maybe this way all my attention is focused in one of them at a time!

This is such a light dinner, it is very easy to prepare. full of nice aromas, nutritious, low-fat, low-carb, gluten-free, paleo. Give it a try, I know you’ll love it!

Different kind of tacos!


Because Luis and my husband Ricardo are home and I know they LOVE mexican food, I’m preparing this meat recipe for tacos. It is very flavorful, comfort food perfect for the cold weather! This kind is pulled beef with new potatoes in fresh tomato sauce. Very easy prepared in the slow cooker so you can enjoy family time!

All you need to do is season the meat, put it in the slow cooker and pour blended tomatoes. Go to the movies, go for a hike, or watch football with your family while it cooks!

Serve it with some vegetables, avocado, rice or beans, and if you are brave enough, go ahead and try the serrano chili that gave its wonderful flavor to the meat!
