Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Monster Cookies

Hi everyone!

Have you tried oatmeal chocolate chip cookies before? If you haven’t, you are missing out! Store bought cookies are good but they don’t come close to the fresh-off-the-oven taste of the homemade version. When I came across this recipe in the December issue of Coastal Living magazine, I just had to make it! This yields about 18 large cookies, hence “monster” in the recipe name. I’m sure you’ll want to try it at home! Here it is peeps! Continue reading “Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Monster Cookies”

Becoming a Baseball Wife

If you had told me more than 10 years ago that I would marry into baseball, I wouldn’t have given it much thought. My husband, FF, and I have been together for 9 years… 2 of those as a married couple. We are now entering our 6th baseball season together and I have to say, it is definitely not an easy thing to get used to. FF is an amateur baseball scout, which means he goes to high schools and colleges searching for potential professional talent. This wasn’t what he thought he’d end up doing in life, but when the recession hit back in 2008, his Masters in Religious Studies and Asian Philosophy wasn’t working for him… so he decided to go back to the sport that was ingrained in him and that lived in his blood since he was born: Baseball.

“No te necesito” Official Music Video


Last year I blogged about the Behind the Scenes of this music video. You can read PART 1 where I explain how I did it and who was part of it and then you can read PART 2 where I show you how the location looked prior to staging and setting it up!  Well… It’s finally done! It was a lot of fun to make especially since I had my friends there with me. This is me at my best. Onstage and with bright lights. Ladies and gentlemen, here is my cutie petutie video for “No te necesito”! I hope you enjoy it! ¡Espero que se lo disfruten!!

Ask and You Shall Receive

Hello February!!

In the spirit of the month of LOVE I want to share with you a very special video titled “Me enamoré” or “I Fell in Love” from a young Puerto Rican singer. It shows how the simple act of asking for what you want can get you exactly that. Jose Alfredo (@josealfredorock) was bold enough to send me a message through Twitter with a special request. He got my attention then one thing led to the next and I ended up being part of his music video! Isn’t that cool?! All hail to the power of social media! The video also includes the generous participation of other local talent. We are all lip synching to his song and had so much fun doing it! You can watch the video for yourself below!

Here’s to being Bold & Creative! Have a wonderful day!

What has been your biggest, boldest move?? Tell me all about it in the comments section or via Social media. Links below.

Thanks for reading! ¡Abrazos!
