    Fig infused cocktail

    Fig infused cocktail

    I lived in New York while I studied film; Union Square holds a year-round farmers market on Tuesdays. While in the summer the market is usually filled with fresh fruits and herbs, in the winter it carries lots of jams, dried fruit and ciders. I loved to stop by after school, and buy an apple cider to warm up. Sometimes the cider vendor offered a delicious rum and fig infusion that was served over ice; it has a particularly floral aroma that blended perfectly with the fruit flavor. I never came across the drink again after leaving the Big Apple.

    During a recent business trip to Paris, I stumbled upon a lovely store filled with teas and infusions of all sorts. I came across rose infusion that brought back the memory of the fig drink. I had to buy it, and attempt my own version of the cocktail.

    Mouse de maracuyá

    Mouse de maracuyá

    My nana (or nanny), Delfina, who has been a part of my family for over 30 years, took care of me and my sisters from the day we were born. Needless to say, she is a second mother to me. My father used to give her instructions on what to cook during the week, mainly because he was always trying a different diet. When he was too busy, though, and didn't pick our menu, my nana cooked whatever she felt like making. That usually meant an irresistible dessert. Sometimes she made torta de plátano, apple or carrot pie, and even sweet empanadas. My all-time favorite, though, is a mousse de maracuyá, (or passion fruit mousse); it's smooth and sweet, but not too sugary. The perfect end to any meal as far as I'm concerned!

    Unfortunately, she lives in Colombia and can't be here to make if for me in person. Luckily, she can (and did) give me precise instructions on how to make it myself. Simpler than I thought, it's similar to making a smoothie with a

  • Shine Latina sat with L'Oreal Paris' Consulting Nail Arist Tom Bachik to get the latest on nail trends.

    Nail colors straight from the runways

    L'Oreal Paris' Tom Bachik, who is inspired by the colors and designs of the high fashion runways, gets to see trends before they reach the public. "I do a lot of photo shoots, and I see what's been pulled for this shoot, and what celebrities like what," says the nail artist who gets to see what people will be wearing months before.

    Lately, the trend is mixing colors and textures, which is now made easy with L'Oreal Paris' newly launched Nail Lingerie. "It's a simple way to create a three dimensional look at home [which] everyone can do it without making a mistake," says Bachik. For an elegant and contemporary manicure, the nail expert suggests applying a nude or white base to nails, and affixing a piece of their fishnet designs on top.

    Pork chops and cilantro tzatziki

    Pork chops and cilantro tzatziki

    Hoping to avoid the summer crowds, I traveled to Europe this past September; the weather was fabulous and the tourist madness had dissipated. I started in Madrid, where I stayed for a few days enjoying some excellent tapas and wine; then, I moved on to Prague and Paris. I found my favorite spot in Greece, though. In its quaint island of Santorini, famous for its sunsets, charisma and exquisite local food, I took in the sights and cuisine.

    During my tour of Imerovigli, I discovered a restaurant overlooking a volcano called "La Maison".

    And what a place it was! The attention was unimaginable, the sunset view arresting, and the food was absolutely exquisite. I ordered lamb chops with tzatziki sauce, which is Greek yogurt blended with cucumber, lime and dill. The lamb chops were juicy and tender, cooked to perfection- a true culinary experience!

    His Neck

    Small bites on his neck can amp up blood circulation. Give him sweet, short besitos while whispering naughty things in his ear. By the time you're done, he'll be begging you to take it to the next level.
