City you live in:
Raleigh, NC

English/Spanish/Spanglish
English is my primary language. However, I understand conversational Spanish. When I was growing up, my grandmother lived with our family. She spoke Spanish/Spanglish to us and we spoke English back. I studied Spanish in high school and college. I use it at home…but not as often as I’d like. Recently, we started Spanish podcast lessons to improve our Spanish. My kids are really excited about them. In fact, last night, after dinner, my youngest son came into the kitchen looking for pegao in the rice pot. Too cute!

Favorite Latin food you can’t live without
I love to cook and especially love Latin Spices. My favorite dishes would have to be Arroz con Pollo and Pastelillos.

What is your Latina contradiction?
Some assume that Latinas only cook Latin food. My multicultural family enjoys Latin and Mediterranean flavors (especially Moroccan and Greek food).

When you think of Latin culture what are the first words you think of?
When I think of the Latin culture, I think of family and flavor. Traditions bring family and food together to create memories that last a lifetime…

What is your ethnicity? Or where is your family from?
My mother is Puerto Rican and my father was Scottish.

Latina? American? Both?
Both. However, I definitely relate more to my Latina roots.

Favorite Latin artist or music?
Marc Anthony, Jennifer Lopez, dance music.

iPhone, Android or BlackBerry?
Blackberry

How do you describe your style?
I work in technology. So, for my professional life, I maintain a polished, classic look which I keep fresh with trendy pieces and accessories. At home, my style is casual chic. I watch the fashion trends to see where I can incorporate them into my lifestyle and leverage pieces for work and play.

What is your favorite Latin restaurant?
I have a few. In Philadelphia, my hometown, I love Cuba Libre. In Raleigh, I like the Red Room and El Rodeo.
