Buffalo Chicken and Sweet Potato Salad

The official end of summer is around the corner, Labor Day. When I was a kid growing up on a military base practically every day of summer was spent at the pool. My friends and I would meet there shortly after it opened and spent the entire day swimming and stuffing our faces with hot dogs….

Piragua de Cherry (Cherry Shaved Ice)

Piragua de Cherry y Vainilla (Cherry Vanilla Shaved Ice)

There is no flavor more classic when it comes to shaved ice then cherry. I’m not sure what it is about cherry that kids seem to love so much. It could be the sweetness but, I think they get a kick out of seeing their tongue turn bright red. How many times do your remember…

Thing to Do in Puerto Rico: Guavate

In the hierarchy of proteins pork is king in Puerto Rico, and there is no place that more clearly defines authentic Puerto Rican food and our love for pork then a small stretch of road along Rt.184 in Cayey Puerto Rico. Tucked away up in the mountains of Cayey is pork heaven, a mile of…

The Fourth of July is around the corner and what says July 4th more than ribs!? Well, there is the Declaration of Independence, but I am talking food here, specifically pork. I am fanatical about pork in all forms so when I was asked to partner with the National Pork Board I was on board….

Strawberry Jalapeño Salsa

I like most people have an appreciation for salsa. Anytime I go to a restaurant and chips and salsa are placed before me I can not help but, stuff my face with chip after chip. Time and time again I try to demonstrate some semblance of self-control when a bowl of chips and salsa is plopped…

Summer Recipes

Before the weekend comes around I am full of plans of productivity. Plans of what project I am going to tackle and what activities I’m going to do but, sometimes the best-laid plans are pointless. Especially when you run into a marathon of Jurassic Park movies. I’d seen the original Jurassic Park multiple times, but I…

Bacalao (Salted Cod Salad)

When I was a kid, my grandmother would make this salad, and it was one of the few things I would refuse to eat.  Great way to start off a food post huh? Of course, I don’t think anyone can successfully feed a child salted cod.  If you have, please let me know.  After much…
