Fellow food bloggers, and my people LOL. I have been chosen to participate in a contest called "El Blogerro Delicisioso" (the delicious blogger). The contest is to be able to have a recording and be featured on the cooking show "Delicioso" on Univision.

PLEASE SUPPORT ME and vote for me! I would really appreciate it :D Maybe my dream will come true :D

I started this blog about 2 years ago, going into my 3rd to share my culture through a culinary perspective. Because I believe that the best way to learn about a culture is through it's food, and of course I wanted to also share the food I enjoy and my knowledge about it with other's.

Growing up I grew up in a very "food oriented" family, I quickly learned to appreciate and love the preparation of food. My Tata (grandma) making the rich Spanish and Cuban bean stews in the kitchen, the cured meats, the pork, the golden rice dishes, and rich tomato based stews, the fragrance of sofritos cooked in generous olive oil illuminating through the house, and of course the smell of fried pork. My mother (mom) making her Tamales, spicy flavorful stews of all kinds with an array of all sorts of peppers and sweet spices, enjoyed w/ fresh made corn tortillas, the humble dishes of vegetables simply sauteed with onions, tomatoes and garlic served almost daily. All these memories I wanted to share.

When my Tata moved, it made me get even closer to my culinary heritage it was a way to stay close to her, and in touch with my roots. Through out this time, I learned more through friends, and other foodies I met, and still keep learning to this day.

Currently I am still a student at Cal State Northridge majoring in Dietetics/ Nutritional Science to which I am adding a Food Science minor too. I don't know where this road will take me exactly whether working in a hospital as a RD helping other's, or formulating some wacky stuff ha ha. Who knows maybe culinary school after wards. Regardless though being on a cooking show or even having my own some day, maybe a restaurant is also one of my many dreams :)

So if I'm one of your favorite food bloggers or you wanna support me I would really appreciate it and it would mean a lot to me if you guys voted for me at Univision's website :)
