Strawberry Kiwi Frozen Mojito

What a week it’s been mommy! I think it’s time to take your heels off, let your hair down, bring the blender out and make a yummy frozen Mojito.
Being Cuban and living in Miami, I do love a good classic Mojito. However why not be a little adventurous and go for some fruity alternatives. I came across this recipe and immediately thought… I have to try it!

Berry Healthy 4th of July – Keeping it light this year

I love a good juicy burger, especially on the 4th of July! I also like all the cheesy sides, corn on the cob covered with butter, and warm apple pie (seriously drooling as I type). However I’m on a health kick and trying to lose some weight here, and the 4th of July is only two days away. What to eat, what to eat…?  I need to stay in check! I have promised myself to work a little, I mean a lot harder on making better food choices, so healthy version 4th it is. I’m a foodie, so flavor is a must.

I have put together a healthy menu for this Saturday. No creamy potato salad or corn casserole this time, but I’m definitely having a good quality burger with some awesome lighter sides and non-fat all natural fruit dessert.

Raspberry Sherbet Float – Summer Drink (non-alcoholic)

This is such a pretty and summery drink to enjoy on a hot summer day… or any day.
This drink is delicious and fun to make with the kids. Best of all it’s super quick and easy to make. Ideal for the busy mom as there are only 3 ingredients; and most likely you already have two of them in your refrigerator (orange juice and apple juice).

Betcha you’ll love this Bechamel Lasagna

Looking for an awesome hot dish to make for your family this weekend? Why not make an amazing home cooked lasagna – the way I learned to make it back in Cuba when I was 9.
My family and friends love this dish so much that every time there is a family gathering they request it. The secret to this dish is the MOTHER of all sauces –  The Bechamel.
The Bechamel sauce is also known as white sauce in America and is made from a roux (butter and flour, then slowly adding milk).Bechamel SauceSo here is the recipe for my famous (locally) lasagna. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family doesVIEW STORY »
