    Ella Cafe (Plantation)

    Greetings My Lovely Subscribers 🙂 ! Growing up in a Cuban household means that I am a HUGE coffee drinker. Since coffee runs in my blood, I love to explore coffee shops whenever my 8-5 job allows. I found this cute coffee shop while in the area a few months back (I go to TATES Comics at least once a month) and vowed that I’d venture off north (since I live in Miami) again and make it a days worth adventure. When I arrived to ELLA CAFE with my husband the place was FULL of customers & clearly that is a good sign. Some people were chatting with the company…

    Abuelita’s Chicken Fricassee (Grandma’s Fricase de Pollo)

    Hola My Friends! I was thinking back on my childhood and how much I worshipped my grandmother’s cooking. As soon as I would get home from school I’d head straight for her kitchen. Of course, I was a chubby little girl eager to be her taste tester. My grandmother would spend hours working her magic in what I always believed was her favorite room in her house. Honestly, till this day I have not found Cuban food as good as hers. I wish I had her longer so that she could teach me her ways. Although she is not with us today, I honor her memory with my love for…

    MORIMOTO ASIA-Valentine’s Day Dinner

    Hey There Lovebirds! I recently went to Orlando and my husband decided to surprise me. He said “Get Cute, we’re going out” and so our night began. We had an early Valentines Day dinner at a restaurant that I had been DYING to go to since FOREVERRR. One thing I can always count on from the moment I met him is that he takes note of all of the places and things I like. I was thrilled that he had noted this place down and decided to save it for a special occasion (Guys, TAKE NOTE). I love the fact that everything he does and gifts is thoughtful. What can…
