    Chorizo Potato Salad

    Chorizo Potato Salad

    Back in Colombia, my parents hosted most of the family gatherings in our finca or farm. None of my relatives ever missed coming over to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, and special holidays. To make things easier the day of the party, my mother would often start cooking the night before the gathering. Usually, if she made something ahead of time, it was her famous chorizo potato salad. The smell of the cooked chorizo was so irresistible that I had to steal a piece or two, making sure to run away before she caught me. My mom's ensalada de papa became a family food tradition, and we still make it for holidays and parties,

    My sisters and I recently cooked together and prepared this delicious dish; we try to make everything fresh, and make sure all the ingredients are cooked right away. Sometimes we serve the potato salad hot if we don't have time to cool it down, but generally we make it and leave it in the fridge for about 30 minutes bef

    Kid's Pizza al Pastor

    Kid's Pizza al Pastor

    When my family gathers, they make sure to cook enough food to eat and take leftovers home. My nieces (four and two years old) enjoy our dinner parties to the fullest; they are always in the kitchen wanting to help out and get involved. They end up setting the table and adding final touches like putting cilantro on soups and decorating their own dishes. This is a great way for them to feel included, and learn about different types of food. They are more engaged when they help, and ask about every item on the table.

    Last week, my sister invited the entire family to have lunch at her house for some delicious roasted pork. She cooked it for six hours in garlic, Coca-Cola and brown sugar. Since we had a lot of leftovers we decided to make something fun for the kids. As we went through the fridge, we found tortillas, pineapple, cilantro and queso fresco (fresh Latin cheese). The flour tortilla made a perfect base for a kid-friendly pizza. We crushe

    You walk into a bar, you see a bunch of dudes, and you….a) leave immediately, everyone looks a loser b) see a few prospects, but would rather just catch up with friends or c) Chat with everyone who looks employed, hey, you never know… If you answered a or b, you fit into the majority of mujeres we know. We get it. It's easy to get burned out on barside coquetones, after all, they're used to running their game on every hot chica they see, no? That's why you need to take control. Here's how to be the big player yourself, taking charge of how to meet the best man in any situation, no PUA lingo required.

    If you're at the bar/club...

    We recommend: Go for a lounge or neighborhood spot, much more likely to weed out the douche factor
    The approach

    1. See a muscly hottie who actually seems smart? Send him two drinks (one for you and one for him). It's sure to be cute conversation starter.
    2. Can't get a word in edgew

    Where are you from?

    I was born and raised in Long Beach, Ca. My mother and father were born in Mexico, so I'm Mexican-American.

    How did you get started in the industry?

    I started sewing when I was 16, just as a hobby. I'm so grateful to God that my hobby turned into a full-fledged business! I feel like I'm living in a dream world!

    What advice would you have for someone wanting to start their own line or business?

    Immerse yourself in fashion, learn everything you can about every part of this industry. Be a sponge, and never give up on your dreams,-you're going to make it!

    What were some of the challenges you faced in starting out and how did you overcome them?

    I never had capital or investors, so not having money was challenging in the beginning. But in the end, not having money was the best thing for me. It forced me to learn everything about the industry, like sales, marketing, patterns, design, etc. It m

    My beautiful mamita raised us eating lots of fruits and vegetables;

    Creamy Cantaloupe Heaven

    Creamy Cantaloupe Heaven

    dessert was often just fresh fruit served with a tiny scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. My all-time favorite was cut-up honeydew melon with homemade ice cream. Sometimes my mom would blend the two together and make a creamy drink. The key was to always blend the fruit first to release its juice, and then add the ice cream to get that perfectly smooth texture.

    Today, I continue to make my mom's delicious recipe, but to make it my own, I add a touch of rum. This is what I call "Creamy Honeydew Heaven." It can be served as a cocktail or as a grown-up dessert, perfect for a night at home with friends. But, a word of caution- the sweetness and creaminess of this cocktail is so amazing that if you don't share it, you might end up drinking the whole thing all by yourself!
