I am going to start this post off by saying that I love pupusas. I love them because I found out that when it is made right, I really LOVE curtido. Curtido is a marinated slaw enjoyed throughout Latin America, though I have come to have a great affinity and lust over that of El Salvador. It is tangy, zesty, crunchy and delicious, which is why they are the base for these delicious wraps! (more…)

I am not a morning person by any means. I love to let my body wake itself up, which is usually around 11AM.

This batch of Cranberry Walnut Pancakes has the flavor of the holidays packed into every bite! (more…)

Also also, this rice bowl is delicious with or without the pernil! (more…)

Now I want to share the other awesome ways to use coconut oil, because that Costco sized tub isn’t just for the kitchen! (more…)
