City you live in:
Edinburg, Texas this year for graduate school. Home is Aransas Pass, Texas.
IBoth. I’m lucky to have support in both English/Spanish so my everyday communcation flows from one language to the other.
Favorite Latin food you can’t live without:
A huge bowl of frijoles de olla with a warm corn tortilla.
What is your Latina contradiction?
Many people think I only cook Mexican food when they read my blog. My blog reflects my heritage. I have global taste buds. I am more than beans/rice.
When you think of Latin culture, what are the first words you think of?
Familia. Cultura. Amor.
What is your ethnicity? Or where is your family from?
Mexican. My family is from Matamoros Tamaulipas.
Latina? American? Both?
Favorite Latin artist or music?
Growing up we heard Pedro Infante every morning before school so his music remains close to my heart. These days I also love Maná and Luis MIguel.
iPhone or BlackBerry?
Samsung Infuse, a gift from my hubby!
How do you describe your style?
Comfort all the way with a dash of sparkle. I love my converse, favorite jeans and my jewelry. I love natural stones as in lapis, fluorite or turquoise.
What’s your favorite Latin restaurant?
In Edinburg, Texas we love Palenque Grill. In Mexico across the street from my grandma they sell the best lengua tacos and honestly no one beats my Mom’s kitchen.
