    Mini arepitas topped with crema Latina

    Arepas are a common type of Latin tortilla. They are a typical dish in Colombian and Venezuelan cuisine. In some regions, they are made flat like a thick tortilla. In others, arepas are filled with meats and cheeses.


    For football season, I decided to replicate my mother's recipe for arepas, but turn them into appetizer-size arepitas topped with crema latina. Crema latina is a heavy, concentrated, unflavored cream that goes well with everything.

    Salma Hayek at the Oscars.

    By Charleen Gonzalez for Shine Latina

    The key to a subtle smokey look is blending and smudging. Salma Hayek perfected this smoldering look at the 85th annual Academy Awards. Of course, no one can try to look like Salma, but you can certainly copy her fabulous makeup! The Oscars this year was full of glamour and star power, and Salma looked amazing while presenting at the ceremony in a velvet, black dress and messy bun. This look is actually not too difficult to achieve, as long as you have some smokey, neutral shades and a good black eyeliner.

    All the makeup used for this tutorial is from Inglot Cosmetics, where you can create your own custom palettes with their innovative Freedom System.

    The eyes have it

    Arroz blanco

    Arroz blanco

    Growing up, abuelita was known for making the best arroz blanco. Her white rice was delicious by itself; it didn't need any beans or protein to go with it. You could tell the rice was ready by the aroma traveling from the kitchen to every room of the house. My father and I would sneak into the kitchen for a bowl before lunchtime, but my grandma quickly caught on and started hiding her coveted grains.

    Her secret to the perfect rice was very simple- she's add a couple of drops of lime juice before cooking. The lime coaxed the grain to open perfectly and absorb the flavor of garlic, onion and condiments. Another great tip? Adding seasoned water beforehand. This step adds flavor to every grain. Enjoy!
