I’ve sorta stumbled my way through this entire process, I hope you’ll bear with me as I figure it all out. This blog is to document my hobbies: photography and cooking.
I love both of these equally. I love sharing both of them with people in my life. Of course, the cooking part is easy, there’s never a shortage of willing taste-testers. Photography…, is a different story. How many times can you ask your friends and family to go to your Flickr account and check out your photostream?
Most of the meals/recipes I will share with you have been prepared for Lindsay, my sweet hubby, and myself. We also love having friends over and feed them for putting up with us. I will do my best to include an anecdote with each recipe, that way you’ll get to know a bit about who I am and what makes me tick. I am a ‘ bit of this and a dash of that’ kinda cook, but promise to do my best to quantify recipes and provide you with measurements.
Being from Latin America and of black descent, my cooking thumbprint has a Latin-Caribbean flair. Following on my mom’s footsteps, I too love the challenge of other cuisine styles, flavors and techniques. This means my cooking range is all over the map, you will not be bored. But the most important thing I want you to take away from visiting my blog, is that delicious food doesn’t have to be complicated and isn’t exclusive to Cordon Bleu graduates.
WE can do it. YOU will have fun doing it. LET’S do it together.
I want to introduce you to my wee baybah. Her name is Chombita, a term of endearment in Panama. She’s my first real baby puppy, which means she’s my first puppy love.
She was pure happenstance, turning up at just the right time. We got her just a few days before my mom’s passing, perfect timing. She was next to me in bed when I got the dreadful phone call. Her paw on my back was the first comfort I received. And she was the reason for the first smile afterwards.
She ‘s all love and puppy craziness. She’s got the biggest paws I’ve ever seen in a puppy. I told The Hubbz they were Maxi Paws, but he says it should really be Maxi Pads, since those are the real freaks of nature.
She’s the cutest snoring machine and she’s made me realize what my poor husband has been putting up with for the last couple years. Sorry, honey.
There’s not a lady-like bone in her little body, that’s probably why I love her so.
In puppy love,
