These are some frequent asked questions about me and my blogging, take a look!
Who are you?
I’m a mexican woman who moved to the United States for love in 2014. I’m a mom of a boy who is growing super fast and I’m the wife of a hard working man. I’m an entrepreneur and a christian. I’m an industrial designer and a jeweler; a consultant and a social media manager.
What are you blogging about?
In my blog I share recipes that I develop every day, tips to cook faster, quick fixes, reviews of products that make my mom life easier, occasional diy projects, motherhood articles and some self improvement material talking about faith and how to be your best you.
Who is the blog primarily for?
I mainly write for moms who want to learn how to cook in an easy and fun way, parents who want to know tips about parenthood and people who put faith in every step of the way.
What’s your favorite food?
I don’t have a favorite food per se. I enjoy going back and forth between central Mexico chalupas, pad Thai, sushi, chicken Parmesan, orange chicken, kepe, corn arepas, peruvian anticuchos, a good grilled Argentinian style steak or some good soupy green enchiladas.
What’s your favorite dessert?
I think that I’m in the constant search of the best cinnamon rolls recipe with cream cheese frosting. I remember that the first time I fell in love with cinnamon rolls I was visiting Spokane, Washington State, and some friends took us to Cinnabon, and at the tender age of 10 years old I fell head over feet for cinnamon rolls.
Years later the franchise arrived to Mexico City and they would sell them at an outrageous high price compared to the very accessible prices that Mexican bakeries would sell their delicacies like conchas and churros.
My search has been constant since then, so when I tell you that the recipe I published in the blog is a good cinnamon roll recipe, I am not kidding.
What’s the most exotic food you have tried?
This is a tough question. As you know, Mexico is well known by its gastronomy. Each state has it’s own typical cooking dish and what might be popular in some places, you cannot find them anywhere else.
Well, a very interesting place to visit if you are into the rarest Mexican delicacies is the Gastronomy Fair in Santiago de Anaya.
I went in 2010 and I found squirrel and skunk tamal, grilled rabbit, snail soup, escamoles and the top of the list is the tacos of this insect called chamuis, which is a beetle of a tree called mezquite, very typical of the Valle del Mezquital. It had a taste like if you were eating an insect that was immersed in perfume.
To my surprise, I liked it. Those and tacos of seasoned crickets that you must try when you visit the state of Oaxaca.
What or who influences you the most?
My family. My Mexican family during my life down there and nowadays, my hubby and my son. They teach me so much on a daily basis.
What is the nationality of your favorite food to prepare?
This one was a trick question, of course! All I cook is mostly Mexican, the new kitchen that I have been learning recently is based on my favorite food. Thai, Chinese, Italian, french, etc.
If you could learn a nationality style of cooking, what nationality would you choose?
I think I would like to learn how to prepare Peruvian dishes.
What is a dish of your own nationality that you would like to prepare but are too afraid to do so.
That would be relleno, from the Guerrero state. I tried it in Acapulco, visiting some friends of mine and it is so delicious!!
It’s made with pork and spices, and you can buy relleno tortas in the Mercado municipal , where the locals buy them.
Do you accept advertising?
I accept inquiries to develop recipes with new or sponsored ingredients. I also do my blogging with some affiliate links, promotions and reviews of products that I can use, but I will always stay true to myself, so I only recommend items that have worked for me.
