First Burger Crush

Food • First Burger Crush • In-N-Out

Yes, people! I have never, never, never liked burgers until one hungry afternoon I said 'I want to try it' and from that point on this is the first burger that broke the rules of fast food for me (in a good way) I have to say, is not that I eat it everyday but just the fact that I keep eating it here and there or as a treat on Saturdays for lunch is just beyond my own mind. The reason I feel this way is because I rather have homemade food, not only because I was not raised to be eating out (not enough money for that) but because with homemade food you control what your body is receiving which I start to appreciate even more as I get older. So there you have it, I love In-N-Out!

Pastelon de Potatoes

Food • Pastelon de Potatoes 

Or as we call it in the Dominican Republic 'Pastelon de Papas'

This very delicious dish is a Dominican staple at least in my household. It is usually made when we have guests or just whenever you want to make your table look special. I love it and, now living in the Phoenix area, I make it very often so I don't feel I'm missing out on my Dominican food. 

It is basically mashed potatoes, mixed with lots of butter and cheese, some milk to make the potatoes creamy, an egg or two depending on the size you are making and I add a can of cream style sweet corn and a can of mixed vegetables. The assembly of it is like a lasagna, so you put your first layer of the potato mix in the baking dish, then the filling can be ground beef or chicken or vegetables or whatever you feel like (sometimes I just put cheese on top of cheese, but that's just me) put your second layer of the potato mix and top it off with some shredded cheese. Since everything is already cooked, you put it in the oven for about 35 minutes or until golden. Enjoy!

Crochet Time

Crochet Time • Coasters 
Crocheting is something I got from my grandmother, she used to crochet as a business and made most of her income that way to provide for us as a family. Even though, I will never be a full time crochet lady like she was (some of my friends called her the spider lady) but I find such comfort doing this activity and it's actually almost relaxing to me. My grandmother passed away last December and this is my way to always keep her in my life, if she was alive, she will be very happy and proud that I keep making time to crochet. So this time a made these simple Yellow coasters, so easy to make and always useful.

Just Saying

My Thoughts on Paper • Just Saying • This is so true, sometimes we try so hard to impress or to please others and it's all in vane. For some people around you it doesn't matter what you do or how hard you try, you will always fall short for them ( I believe it has a lot to do with their own insecurities ) but it still hurts at times. That being said, just be you and enjoy life the way you are. By doing this you will attract the people that will always love you for your uniqueness and for who you really are.

Saturday Decor

Monogram Coffee Mugs by Anthropologie • I love these cups, I purchased them a long time ago. The one to the left is a bigger size than the one to the right, I remember paying only $5.00 for the one to the left, then I went back to buy another one because I broke the edge of it, when I got to the store I realized that the cup is now smaller and $8.00. My love for these cups overlooked the size and the price tag and I took it home with me once again. These cups are simple, beautiful and the perfect size for my coffee time.
