When J left for his first year of college last year I hadn’t planned on seeing him until Thanksgiving of that year. Except he got a bit homesick and came for a quick visit in September, and then again to celebrate A’s 1st birthday in October. Each time we flew him home, even if it was for just for quick weekend visit. Not exactly what we thought when trying to figure out how to bring the comforts of home to college for him.
This past weekend in Miami was the South Beach Wine & Food Festival. It’s a wine and food lovers paradise. I love cooking Latin dishes, especially Cuban food – hubby loves Vaca Frita, and the kids all love a plate of Arroz Chaufa. A nice heaping plate of Arroz Imperial or Arroz con Pollo is a staple at my, and many a Latino table. In fact, rice is one of the main ingredients in so many dishes that sometimes you just need something different.

We love learning about other cultures and recreating traditions with our own family to celebrate. We have friends that come from all different backgrounds and teaching the girls about different cultures helps them grow.
The one food that everyone in our home craves is my homemade macaroni and cheese. There is something extremely comforting about all that cheesy goodness that stretches from spiral to spiral as you dig into your plate and scoop out a mouthful. This year through my partnership with Hickory Farms, my irresistible homemade macaroni and cheese has received a first class upgrade! I can’t even begin to explain to you the difference the Hickory Farms line of cheese products made in my dish.
