Meal Prepping for Kids: Valentina’s Cinnamon Apple Sauce and Avena

A few weeks ago I posted a short video on my Instagram stories to share how I meal prep for Valentina before the start of each week. To my surprise, I received quite a few questions and comments and figured it would be helpful to share the recipes here for anyone who needs a little inspiration when it comes to kid-friendly foods. The timing couldn’t be more perfect now that most of us are at home with our little ones. 

Enjoy,

Lemon Drop Margarita Recipe + 10 Fun Facts About Margaritas to Celebrate National Margarita Day

On February 22 we raise our glasses in celebration of National Margarita Day. When I think of tequila these days, I’m reminded of all the delicious margaritas I’ve tasted throughout the years. In crafting this cocktail recipe I was transported to the two places that inspire me most: my home state of California where citrus fruit grows in abundance this time of year, and Mexico, home of the lively spirit known as tequila. A perfect blend of two ingredients from each respective place and voila, I present to you my mouth-puckering Lemon Drop Margarita. As an added bonus, I’m also sharing 10 fun facts about margaritas to kick off the festivities.

¡Espero que les guste y salud!
