    Easy Marshmallow Snowman for hot chocolate

    I really enjoy making crafts, mostly during the holidays and even more for Christmas. With a 2 year old around me, I’m always searching for easy and fast crafts, because if you have one of those tiny persons in your life you totally agree with me that their attention span is really short.  I remember that I made this easy Marshmallow Snowman for the first time almost 5 years ago for Sebastian’s school Christmas party. I needed something easy back then because I had to make around 30.  This idea at pinterest really inspired me, it looked so easy, that I decided to make my own version. It was a huge…

    Low Carb Pumpkin mousse Pie

    What’s thanks giving dinner without Pumpkin Pie? We started the KetoDiet about two weeks ago, and thank God we got to host thanksgiving at our house, that way we prepared low carb friendly food for everyone. The hardest thing with gluten free/ sugar free/ keto pastry recipes for me is to find something really tasty. I really hate the flavor of stevia, I can’t handle it. On my search for a Low carb Pumpkin Pie recipe online, I found one at Simply so healthy blog, that really caught my attention because they didn’t used stevia, but a granulated stevia/ erythritol blend. Plus the mousse had a crust just like pumpkin…

    Pacific coast highway road trip with kids

    For the first time I had this feeling that I didn’t wanted to came back from vacations. At the end of every vacation I always have this need to come back to reality, but not this time, I don’t know if it was because it was a short vacation or because how I felt in love with California.  I started planning this trip knowing that my plan could be totally sabotaged by Mia (she is a couple of weeks from the terrific twos ). In effect my plan got sabotaged several times and we made unplanned things that turned out to be amazing. Anyway I wanted to have a plan…

    Toddler Tuesday at Discovery Green + Good Dog

    I really like Houston parks but it’s hard for me to stay long periods of time outdoors during summer. Usually during summer we have either indoors or splash pads play dates, like story time at The Houston Museum of Modern art.  I was looking for something fun to do because the weather forecast for this week was perfect to do something outdoors without melting and getting sweaty after 5 minutes like a regular Houston summer day.  I saw a Facebook post were Big Kids Small City announced that they were hosting a story time at discovery green; By the way You need to follow Big Kids Small City if you…

    Overnight Mango and Matcha Oatmeal

    I had seen lots of overnight oatmeal recipes lately and I decided to give it a try, the mango and greek yogurt version caught my attention, I mixed matcha to the yogurt and it turned out really yummy! The mango and matcha flavors together make a great combination. If you are not familiar with matcha, I strongly suggest you to try it, the flavor is really intense, so you might want to start with small quantities and try it blending in different food, you can even make a Matcha Latte! It’s delicious and it’s packed with so many benefits. If you want to learn more about matcha, benefits and nutritional facts visit Body, Health, Love blog, she made an…

    Glamping in Antigua Guatemala

    Every summer we visit our family in Guatemala, my parents wanted to spend some quality time with us this time so we went glamping to Antigua Guatemala. We headed to Antigua and had lunch at an amazing restaurant “Los tres tiempos”, it’s located at “La calle del Arco”,  the  decor and food is an inspiration of Guatemala culture, I had a “chuchito souffle” it was delicious.  After lunch we went to the local market and then we checked in at Casa Santo Domingo. If you ever go to Antigua, Casa Santo Domingo is a must visit place, it’s s a luxury one of a kind hotel with a museum, spa,…

    Pineapple sorbet

    I can’t find words to describe how spectacular it’s the taste of this sorbet, the cinnamon topping adds a unique flavor! I know! we are just in January and it’s cold, very cold, but over here we love ice cream, especially if it´s homemade. I made the recipe using an ice cream machine but you can do it without a machine. One of the most frequent problems when making sorbets, it’s that as soon as you freeze it, it becomes really hard like a solid brick of ice and loses the soft and smooth texture. I found a blog post “sorbet 101¨ at Zoe Bakes, in which she explains that the…

    A weekend in Austin with a toddler

    We just came back from Austin and in conclusion we want to move to Austin some day LoL. We felt in love with Austin, we had been there before but we didn’t had the time to explore the city.  We started our trip with a stop at an RC track because the main purpose of the trip was a RC race Cris had that weekend. So we stopped and it was soooo hot! There was no place with AC at the track and you know Texas in the summer, not good without a pool if you are outdoors, Mia didn’t see to mind that much, she was playing with her…

    Museum of Fine Arts Houston Playdate + Tiny’s Milk & Cookies

    Summer time in Houston immediately calls for indoor locations to play and entertain kids and adults. Since I moved to Houston everyone has recommend me to visit the Museum of Fine Arts, I really never felt a big interest in going until I saw they were having the temporary exhibition Pixel Forest and Worry Will Vanish by Pipilotti Rist, I knew it would be really delightful for Mia and me, a time of stimulation and relaxation at the same time. We went on a Tuesday at 10:45am to the play date they host every Tuesday, it was a unique experience of story time, each month they focus on a different work of art.  They…

    Free Easter egg hunt Printables

    Easter is in less than two weeks, and I already begin to have a few things ready for egg hunting.  I designed this bunnies to decorate the backyard and to give Mia  signs of where  she should look for the eggs.  At the beginning I thought I wanted them to be raised from the grass with wooden stakes, but it was not really necessary they look really cute standing directly on the grass. To make them, just download my free  Easter egg hunt printable, print it on  heavy card stock and cut around. You can tape  bamboo skewers on the back, or you can glue them to presentation board  and…
