For my bridal shower the party asked each guest to bring a favorite recipe to share with me. It could be anything; desserts, main dishes, sides, family secrets, etc…! I am so grateful they did this as I now have a bunch of family favorite recipes to discover. When the recipe from my Abuelita came [...]
This dish comes out a couple times a year for our family. Before I met my husband I never knew you could eat corn flakes on top of potatoes; I had only ever eaten it as a cereal. The first time I tried this dish we were having a pool party and we had the [...]
This recipe comes from my husband’s grandpa. The family would make it for pool parties dating way back. I was fortunate to join in on the festivities as of 2007 and try this yummy concoction. No one ever measured anything; it’s prepared by eyeing it. I’ve done my best to recreate the dish with measurements [...]
I remember having arracheras every time we went back to see my dad’s family. We would have a family barbeque a couple times during our stay and these lovelies would always be there, among a lot of other tasty dishes I look forward to discovering and making. This is a very easy dish you just [...]

My love for banana bread started in college with the best roommates ever! There’s an inside joke surrounding this wonderful loaf but it’s one of those you had to be there type of moments that will live with me forever. Since my college days I have tried multiple iterations of this awesome bread and finally came up with what I believe is the best recipe out there. It is moist, fluffy and just the right amount of chocolate if that is your thing; if it’s not just leave them out. I think every family should have banana bread in their recipe book and I look forward to my family passing this down and hope yours does as well.
These are by far the best cookies I have come across and I have been making them at least three to four times a year since 2007-ish. A lady I used to play soccer with gave me this recipe and I am so thankful she did! This is a family favorite that I look forward to passing on to the next generation and to you.
