We change our eating habits significantly during the summer. That’s what happens when you live in the tropics. I am always looking for cooling dishes and dishes that don’t require long cooking. We loved this watermelon summer salad. I served it for dunch the other day and we practically licked the bowl clean.

I am back home, can you tell?
I complained for weeks about the cold weather, and now I am home complaining about the heat and humidity. So I turned to our beloved paletas to combat the heat, this time inspired by famous drinks from 3 of my favorite countries.

OK, maybe that was a poor choice of words.
After two weeks traveling, and two more weeks to be back home, I have subjected my digestive system to abuses that it rarely takes kindly. We all do that when we travel. For the last two days I have had to give it a break, I would like to get back home in one piece.
It’s hard to believe, but this recipe for Dominican-style cream of wheat is one of the most searched for in our blog. At least I find it quite surprising, after all it is a very simple dish that I thought most people could cook without a recipe.
In the meantime, let me tell you of my latest adventures. If you have been following me on Instagram you probably noticed that I have been outside the DR for a little while.
