Early on in our marriage I told Alex that I would NEVER try to make his moms dishes.  She is an amazing Cuban cook and I knew that I would fall short if I even tried to cook like she does.  So, I found my own style and seduced Alex through my cooking.  He has the best of both worlds and we have a happy marriage.

Last week, I ventured into the cuban realm and cooked up this incredible Whole 30 Picadillo that left Alex speechless and today I am sharing the love.

There are a few things that I try and fight head on. 1. the fine lines that are showing up around my face and 2. Germ season!!!

This time of year I am all about fighting winter colds and the dreaded flu. However, sometimes there’s no getting around them and you just have to muster through it.  I have an AMAZING cold fighting citrus and tropical smoothie that’s packed with Vitamin C and delicious nutrients that pick me right up!

There are also a few things that I stock up on that helps me get through the cold season:

We are so excited about the holiday season and are pulling out all of our festive holiday recipes. Today I’m sharing with you my warm acorn squash and pomegranate salad (below). It is the perfect salad to serve alongside your holiday dinner or as the main course. The acorn squash slowly roasts to give it a soft and tender bite, and the pomegranate seeds add crunch and a sweet and tart flavor. I love serving this salad warm making it perfect for the change of season.

Along with preparing holiday dishes and decorations, we are also preparing to have a healthy holiday season.

There are a few products but I’d like to keep in stock as we head into the colder weather:

  • Abreva pump because it delivers the best results at the first sign of a cold sore and because I have them frequently during the colder weather, I make sure to keep it on hand.
  • Clorox Disinfecting Wipes is a must! I use these year round, but make sure to stock up especially since I have three little ones running around touching everything. I love them because they kill 99.9% of germs* that can live on surfaces for up to 48 hours**. They also kill Staph, E. Coli, Salmonella and Strep. I also use it to clean Emory’s highchair and make sure to rinse it with water after I wipe it all down.
  • Theraflu ExpressMax Severe Cold & Flu Syrup because it provides powerful relief without a prescription
  • TYLENOL® Cold + Flu Severe Warming Honey Lemon Liquid.  I usually take Tylenol capsules, but this warming liquid is so comforting.  It also clears nasal congestion, quiets my coughs and relieves minor aches and pains.

So the holidays are here and we are super excited about it! I love giving gifts and I usually start checking people off my list early. This year is a little different.  Because we are far away from home, we are opting for something a little less traditional.  This year, we are gifting our friends Grey Goose!  Grey Goose is a superior spirit made with high-quality ingredients and it comes in a festive package, making it the perfect gift to share and enjoy!  This is also the perfect gift to give to those people on your list who have absolutely everything they need and want.

Grey Goose is a gift that can be shared instantly with friends and family and today I’m sharing with you the recipe for a classic martini! I love making traditional martinis.  They are classic, festive and fun and can be made in a short amount of time, making it a perfect drink for a holiday get together. I also handwrite this recipe and attach it to the bottle when I gift it to make it just a bit more special.
