My dinner at The French Laundry

  Although I have been active on my Foodielady Facebook Page, it’s been over 6 months since I don’t post on this platform. Life has been… complicated. However, I have some recipes lined up to publish in the near future, but first, to commemorate the upcoming 20th anniversary of The French Laundry under Chef Thomas […]


Chef José Andrés’ Spanish Collins

Last month, Spanish Chef José Andrés paid us a visit to promote his restaurant Mi Casa at the Ritz Carlton Reserve in Dorado, Puerto Rico.  I was one of the fortunate guests who had the chance to watch his cooking demonstrations and sample some of his trademark dishes as well as unique creations concocted specially […]



  The other day, I was commenting on Foodielady’s Facebook Fan Page (go now and LIKE it so you don’t miss a thing!!!), about the abundance of cucumbers I harvested from my edible garden.  I asked my followers to give me some tips of dishes I could make with them since I was getting tired of […]

Gazpacho Criollo

Gazpacho Criollo

  What a wonderful feeling to be able to, once in a while, get together with fun friends, drink good wine in a beautiful natural setting and enjoy delicious food.  This frames the perfect ambiance for easy conversation and for your nice bubbly gathering to end up as a full blown party singing and dancing […]

Huevos Estrellados con Patatas Fritas- Casa Lucio

Earth Day 2013

  Over the years, I have become enthralled with the idea of having my own edible garden.  I would fantasize about spending time tending to my greens, picking red ripe on the vine Roma tomatoes and biting into fresh fruit from my own patio. My harvests so far have been limited to cherry tomatoes, a […]


National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day 2013


Roasted Leg of Lamb with Garlic and Rosemary

  Emilio and I don’t go out to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Period.  Once, many years ago, on a trip to Miami that coincided with the date, we went out with some friends and it was a total nightmare. It’s difficult to sit down, relax and enjoy a nice meal and expect good service on such […]


My Bittersweet 40th Birthday- Cinnamon Toasts

My Bittersweet 40th Birthday When I was a teenager and I looked at people in their thirties I considered them to be really, really, old.  As time went by, people in their thirties didn’t seem old anymore, simply, more experienced.  Today, on the eve of my BIG 4-0, I’m hit with the brutal reality that […]
