Nothing brings together family and friends more than food right? In my family, tamales are a definite must when it comes to feeding a large family like ours, especially during the holidays. Today I'm sharing a twist on one of my grandma's classic tamales recipes. Don't tell her, but it's kind of a short cut. She always disapproves when I tweak her recipes and will never admit how much she likes it, even if she has seconds. Don't you just love abuelas? Okay, back to these delicious tamales. #VivaLaMorena
Busy moms with busy families know how hard it is to come up with a healthy dinner every single night. I'd like to say I am one of those awesome moms that meal plan and prep freezer meals for a month in advance and just toss them in the crock pot every day of the week. But, that's not me. Not at all, in fact you can pretty much guarantee that I will be making a last minute run to the market for some random but necessary ingredient. However, I am the Mom that always makes sure my girls have a balanced dinner, 5 nights a week, we have a vegetable on our plate. #BalanceYourPlate
