For our five year anniversary, we decided to do a weekend getaway to Fort Myers, which is the west side coast of Florida. The drive was only one hour and a half which was a piece of cake. We visited Siesta Key Beach, which is now the #1 Beach in the United States! The beach… Continue reading South Beach Grille. Fort Myers, FL.
When I go grocery shopping, I’m always striving to get the best deal for the best quality meat. I love pork tenderloin! And this week it was on sale at Publix, so I took advantage of it. To my surprise there were two tenderloins in the bag, usually one feeds my family for dinner and… Continue reading Pork tenderloin… two dinners in less than 30 minutes.
Since I’ve been eating healthier, I need to constantly work in new recipes that will help me to satisfy my cravings and also keep me full. I like Asian cuisine, but takeout is not my favorite at all! Every time my husband orders orange chicken from takeout, I feel like it doesn’t really have any… Continue reading Guilt-less orange chicken!
I have got to be honest… I hate packing! It takes me hours to pack. Thank God my husband gets his luggage ready, but I still need to pack for me and my one year old son. I have no tips about myself (I feel like I need to take everything every time) But I’ve… Continue reading Vacation packing for a baby!
Since a lot of people (including myself) are in the whole new year’s resolution, I have been recreating a lot of dishes that are still tasty and also on the low calorie side.

Andres is 20 months right now. Ever since his birth we have traveled to Brazil (8 hour flight), Colombia, New York and Washington. Yes that sounds crazy! But my husband and I love to travel and we will continue to travel for the rest of our days. The way I see it is that if… Continue reading Flying with a baby/toddler 101
Back when I worked in Spain, the chef of the restaurant had a wide knowledge of sous vide. I was doing my internship for culinary school and they never even mentioned the word “sous vide” through the whole 13 month course. I was very intrigued about this cooking method and learned quite a bit while… Continue reading Sous vide first trial!
Two weeks ago I traveled to Frankfurt and Stuttgart, Germany. While I traveled mostly to receive a training for the company I work at, we did get to eat different type of food and also different dinninn styles. Restaurant Adler was my number one favorite place, while the dinner was 4 hours long, I enjoyed… Continue reading Meze dinning style at a Greek restaurant. Germany edition!
While in Brazil, everyone encouraged me to try the famous Açai Bowl. When i think of Açai, blueberries and blackberries come to mind. However this is quiet different. First of all, you may find this in every corner of Brazil in any Frutteria (fresh fruits quick restaurant) and all the toppings vary from one place… Continue reading Açai Bowl- Brazil
