I’m a Latina, born in Mexico, immigrant with a story and US citizen as a choice. I’m a wife, friend, step mom, grandmother and an animal lover. My profession is marketing strategist but I am a chef at heart. I have tremendous respect for the food I serve to my family and friends, and every day I learn different flavors and tricks to include in my food repertoire.
I love to read about food, recipes, and trends as well as to experience new restaurants and watch famous chefs prepare food. Then I go back to my kitchen, the place where my cooking adventure starts.
My recipes are based on inspiration, a flavor, a spice, the smell of fresh fruit or an herb, what I have available in my fridge or simply a walk in the local farmers market to check out the fresh ingredients that will inspire my dish of the day.
My motto: “simple flavors can create masterpieces” and my whole focus with this site is to share easy recipes that you can recreate at home and get you inspired to cook, because through food you can touch the lives of those you love.
I grew up in the kitchen, so I got my love for cooking and skills from my mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and my aunts. These women have influenced my cooking style for many years, that is why a lot of my recipes are inspired by them and most importantly by my grandmother’s legacy.
I shared very special moments with my dear grandma Doña Alicia, named by me in a loving way Mamá Licha (Alicia). She taught me the passion for making people happy putting out delicious dishes. She owned several restaurants and catered for the Mexican socialité for many years. Great teacher Doña Alicia now my angel companion and to whom I dedicate this site and my recipes.
