In out house, I'd have to say my Cuban husband is the best cook. My favourite dish is ropa vieja with congris and platano maduros

I would love to try these - I saw them recently at my LYS but haven't tried them yet. I like the pointy tip but also being a little grippy. Adia on Ravelry
I like Habana Brand Clothing!

We just moved and the first things to go on the wall was our Cuban art - sketches of the Holguin country-side.

I love espresso and enjoy it after a meal, sweetened of course. In the morning, I enjoy Cafe con Leche :)

CONGRATULATIONS!!! I starting reading your blog about 5 years ago. I was looking for recipe for arroz con leche and found you and yours is the only one that I make now. I have since made many of your recipes. My husband has been very happy that I found your website :)

I Love Lucy was one of my favourite shows growing up. I love that fact that I can now watch it with Cuban husband, who is starting to love it just as much. My husband keeps saying 'but you didn't understand what Ricky was saying', and I tell him that it wasn't the point of understanding...but now I CAN understand what Ricky is saying LOL

Hi Marta, I'm not Cuban, but had the pleasure of marrying Cuban. I'm learning all about the superstitions. Mine, coming from a Ukrainian family, were not so much superstitions, but "old wives tales"; like, don't got out with wet hair or you'll get sick; don't drive with the window open or you'll get an ear infection; and so on.

Cafe con leche. Reminds me of my suegras house in Cuba.

My first cup of coffee is cafe con leche. I'd sometimes have a latte in the afternoon. I would love to try the Pumpkin Spice coffee from the Holiday Collection.

I don't know and I'm not related to any Pedro Pans. But I do know my husband's story of being born in Cuba in 1983 and leaving to come to Canada in 2006. I've always told him that he should write down what it was like to live in Cuba in the eighties and nineties and the struggles..and the continued struggles. Thank you for sharing Christina's books!

Both my husband and I love horror movies - my only problem is that I can't watch it before bed...especially The Walking Dead. I'm sure this one would be hilarious!

What a touching story. My favourite charm is the cafetera - its a staple with my Cuban family and always makes me feel so much at 'home' with them. I actually made reference to these charms in my comments from yesterday :) Thanks so much!

Congratulations!!! I found your blog searching for Cuban recipes. My husband is was Cuba and has now been in Canada for 6 years. Shortly after he arrived, I was desperate to find some good recipes for him to enjoy, especially a good flan recipe. I did a search, and you popped up. Now you are my go-to for anything Cuban. What do I love about the website?! Well, everything. I enjoy reading the stories of you family, your children, your mother, your recipes and Cuba-inspired products. I'm trying to get one of the Pandora-inspired charms, but don't think they deliver to Canada. Keep sparkling for many years to come!

My BFF Tanya. We've known eachother since JK, just over 30 years! We normally tell people that we have known eachother since before birth since her mother was initially supposed to marry my uncle...and then married another man (Tanya's dad). I would tell her that she's an amazing woman, mother, wife but most of all an amazing friend. We've had our ups and downs but we both known that we would each drop everything for the other. She's my sista from another mista :)

I'd make mini banana pancakes. I'd choose the orange. My favourite word to add an "-ito" is "amorcito". On a side note, mi suegra called me "manzanita" because my cheeks would always get burned and she said I look like a "manzanita" :)

What a beautiful colour! I would have to make congris. (Hope being in Canada still let's me qualify - if not, it's still a great caldero) :)
