Oye! Welcome to my Blog!


Hi There, My name is Yvette and I am the GUAVA obsessed mastermind behind this unique MIAMI Blog named GUAVETTE. You’re probably asking yourself what in the world is “GUAVETTE”!? Guavette originated from Yvette (my name) and from my obsession for ALL things GUAVA! But, there is more to Guavette than just Guava of course (GASP).

Since an early age, I’ve had that SPICE in my soul! You know what I mean..that special funk and charm that no one could ever or will ever shake out of you? That special something that makes YOU unforgettable (Insert Frank Sinatra song here LOL)! Kind of like when you add a sprinkle of “SAZON” mix in your food and you know this just made your dish memorable! BAM! That’s it! That’s what I have within; a whole lot of SPICE and I’m ready to share it all with you.

Growing up Cuban American has always been something I’ve carried with pride, specially all while being born and raised in MIAMI. As a child, I always saw my Grandmother (May She Rest in Peace) cooking an amazing Cuban dish! There were always people at her house. Everyone full of nostalgia as they ate; kind of like the food would suddenly transport them to their Motherland (CUBA). It was a beautiful thing to watch so many people sharing the love of friendship, family, food, and life! All of these moments spent watching this daily ritual molded a piece of me; a piece of me that I want to share with ALL of you. I share my Cuban heritage proudly thanks to my family’s beautiful nostalgic stories, the food they cook, and their undying love of their roots!

I hope that you enjoy my BLOG and get a taste of my roots, Miami, and the SPICE in my writing, food reviews, recipes, adventures, and cool things I enjoy so that you can share my SPICE with others !

With Love & Sazón,
