Hi! I’m Cynthia! On this blog – I’ll be writing about the things I love; cooking real food, embracing the seasons, and sharing meals with the people in my life. There will be apple recipes in the fall, brussel-sprouts for the winter, radishes in springtime and gorgeous tomatoes all summer mainly all from my garden. For a long time I have fought with weight issues and tried all sorts of non-sense diets all while knowing that the keys of health and a balance lifestyle lie in eating real food in the right season. Often you will find the food that I grew up with, food from my Mama’s kitchen – food made with love, passed down from generation to generation, food that for a brief second takes me back in time, to my mother’s dining table. Table that I shared with my 7 siblings and my parents! Growing food and cooking in general is the very heart of fine living. This blog is a celebration of community, the garden, farmers, artisans, families, traditions, being Latina, and all of the hard work it takes to bring goodness to the table. More than often I will share my obsession with coffee!
I am also wife to my best friend & Photographer Johnny. We do life and work together, we love Jesus Christ and hope to live lives with intention. I am a child of God, a woman pursuing to be the best woman I can be in God.I am passionate about the liberation of sex slaves and the end of this terrible industry.I have a love affair with food and life…I love people. I love to wear vintage chic aprons from Antropologie mainly because they make me feel like a 1950s housewife. I have the ability to be obscenely domestic – my mama taught me well. I work in my family business. But I also dream of owning a cafe and an Artisan Salsa bar. But honestly, I’m just a 20-something girl trying to find her place in this world.
My love, Johnny, happens to be quite the talented photographer. A landscape architect turned image making mastermind…his forte are people and architecture, we are using this space to work on food 😉 We look forward to your comments, and hope to bring you to a table with people you love. So, welcome to my adventure. I hope you stop by for a visit and stay awhile. I always enjoy the company. You never know, you just might find yourself starting an adventure of your own.
