Cuban Pastelitos de Carne (Picadillo): Easy BTS Snack

Cuban Pastelitos de Carne (Picadillo): Easy BTS Snack

Cuban Recipes for Back to School If anywhere in their lives, my kids embrace multiculturalism and their Cuban heritage through their stomachs. They might not be (fully) bilingual (yet!), but Alina can woof down Cuban recipes como una Cubanito sincera. Walmart asked me to share our favorite back to school snacks and quick meals, so I'm showcasing one of my all-time favorite BTS snacks as a kid: the Cuban Pastelito de Carne, or Cuban Picadillo stuffed meat pies. The term pastel means pie in Spanish and, if you know anything about Spanish, adding -ito to the end of it makes cute, little pies. … [Read more...]

 

My Kid Is Too Giant For Strollers, And I’m Not Happy About It

My Kid Is Too Giant For Strollers, And I’m Not Happy About It

I've been a Britax Latina Ambassador for two years - two years!! That's like a lifetime in blogger years and deserves some kind of celebration! We've all grown up quite a bit within that time. I visited Britax headquarters in North Carolina and was able to test their innovative ClickTight Technology that has literally changed our lives. (See a full review of the Britax Frontier 90.) I've been able to report the latest product developments and even the values and ethics of this stand-up company. It's true, this post is sponsored by Britax and I'm proud to support them year after … [Read more...]

 

Colorful Sights and Sounds of the Iowa State Fair

Colorful Sights and Sounds of the Iowa State Fair

Who doesn't love a fair? The rides, games and food create nostalgic moments that we cherish. I was traveling in Iowa for an event last week and when I saw the itinerary included a night at the Iowa State Fair, I was instantly excited! Do you follow DeSuMama on Instagram? We had a great time at the fair and I shared all the fun! The only bummer was not having my babies with me. Summer photography is my absolute favorite. Filled with vibrant colors, the images created are usually ones I cherish. Documenting summer months through photography is a no-brainer for most moms, so I'm sure you know … [Read more...]

 

Newest Outdoor Playhouse: Step2 Neat & Tidy Cottage II

Newest Outdoor Playhouse: Step2 Neat & Tidy Cottage II

The newest outdoor playhouse from Step2 is available in select stores and it has provided my kids with hours of outdoor fun! As a Step2 Ambassador, the Neat & Tidy Cottage II Outdoor Playhouse was sent to us to conduct this review and I'm excited to let you know what we think. Our last Step2 outdoor playhouse - the The Great Outdoors Playhouse - worked perfectly for a few reasons: it was super tall and big, allowing my big babies plenty of room to move around. It was open, allowing me to join in the fun! But what the first playhouse did not have, that this Neat & Tidy Cottage II … [Read more...]

 

Our Back to School Morning Routine for Family of Four

Our Back to School Morning Routine for Family of Four

Healthy Morning Routine For The Whole Family Alina starts pre-k soon and, while she'll only be in school for half days, making sure our back to school morning routines are healthy for the whole family is a top priority of mine. Mornings are critical to setting the tone for a successful and positive day. So when Walmart asked me to share how I was going to make my back to school routine work for the whole family, I started to put my plan in motion. I have to make sure each members of our family of four is making healthy choices as they start their day. Dad, mom and kids each have their … [Read more...]
