"We're Not From Here" - #Jarritos and #LatinFoodFest13

If you have followed my blog for a while I occasionally talk about my heritage and being Hispanic. I am only the 3rd Generation to have been born in the United States; but my grandparents lived, worked and went to school in Mexico. I have even visited family deep into Mexico when I was in middle school and ever since I have waited for a chance to go back and visit. One thing that most people talk about (even the ones that get ill) is THE FOOD! That tradition was brought over to the valley (Rio Grande Valley) little by little over the years. Even growing up I remember my dad saying "What's the best part about a QuinceaƱera? [pause] THE FOOD! Such great memories.

When I was contacted to spread the word about the Latin Food Fest, the memory of flavors ran through my mouth! What is Latin food? Well it is the cuisine that is flavorful and gives you that intense flavor when you bite/drink something for the first time. It's food from Latin America, which includes the Caribbean, Mexico and South/Central America. Of course I am more familiar with the Mexican flavors like, corn, carrnitas and goat cheese, YUM!

What is your favorite Latin inspired recipe?

Tweet me and use #Hashtag, #Jarritos and #Latinfoodfest13! But one thing that stands out and I fondly remember, even before visiting Mexico is Jarritos! Since 1950 it has exploded. It's what brings the whole meat together for many Mexican-Americans and is now widely sold in the US.

I never really knew it's background and where it came from, but after watching the "Story of Jarritos" I am glad that I grew up drinking them. My girls love to drink them especially when we go out and eat at local taquerias and enjoy taquitos with #Jarritos. Our favorite flavors are Pineapple and Mexican Cola! My mouth is already watering!

Jarritos is one of the sponsors of #LatinFoodFest2013! The Latin Food Fest is being held in San Diego, September 12-15. Like them on Facebook for the latest news, pics and more! Their story just screams Latin Food Fest and speaking of the Story, you gotta check it out. The animation is awesome and, again, the story is one not to forget. Let me know what you think of the story.

Hickies: Back-to-School Series #1

Every Friday in the month of September I will share a few tips for making the transition for both kids and parents a bit easier. This first one is a doozie! HICKIES! Keep reading to learn what I'm talking about.... I try to buy my girls (i have 3 school-aged daughters) two or more pairs of shoes; an active shoe, which usually has laces, and a more casual/formal shoe, which usually doesn't have laces. Which ones do they choose to wear nearly every day to school? The ones that have shoe laces! Of course my oldes daughter, who's now 13, can tie her own shoes, but the other two still need help. And let's be real, even the oldest one I find myself nagging her to tie her laces correctly, she gets sloppy in the mornings at times. Here come HICKIES to save the day!

Hate tying your kids' shoes everyday before they step out of the house? Hate stopping to tie your own shoes mid-run? HICKIES products turn any pair of sneakers into convenient, comfortable, and stylish slip-on…
