I love reading about your lovely garden. My favorite garden flower is the sweet pea. But, I never seem able to grow them. Of what I grow, must say the Disneyland rose is my favorite. We have some lovely peppers growing right now. If anyone needs this win it is me. Maybe u could get more things to grow!

I think I'd get some long over due cushions. Maybe work on a retan set! I want to spend more time outside this year. Sometimes the heat really knocks me out. I deffinatelly have a Eclectic style. I just love Pier One! My color is orange so I would deffinatelly love something orange. You're patio looks lovely. I must come and visit! I feel the need for ice tea!

Well, I think my favorite sitcom of all time, for me would be I Love Lucy! A close second would have to be Mr. Ed. If I was cast in a Cuban sitcom, I guess it would have to be the crazy neighbor who always butts in! Love you and especially your blog!

I love your blog and your stories! I'm also glad you love my jelly! I feel like I finally have a nitch for something I known for! I was so happy to find that last juice to,make a batch again. Gene said we are keeping it. And I said except one for my BFF!! I love you and appreciate you more than you know!

I never had the relationship with my mom that I would have liked. It causes my heart to ache. And as you know now things are strained with my daughter. Which makes me so sad. I would say enjoy the moments our Lord gives you. I think we all are fearful of aging. I love you Marti. We all love you.

You know I love everything Tolkien. I count 13 dwarves which is why they needed the 14th (burglar). Gene was the Marti in our family. He started reading after Thanksgiving starting with The Hobbit and ending with The Return of the King! He did all the voices and sung the songs! I hope I win! But if not, I'm going anyway!

I love cappuccino mostly! Every morning my wonderful husband makes me a cappuccino. However I do love a good Cuban coffee and I'd have it each day but I haven't perfected it. At night I enjoy a sleepy time/peppermint tea!! I'd love to win this as I'm not allowed to touch my husbands machine!

I love coffee! My husband usually makes cappuccino or a latte for me in the morning using his Gaggia. It is always perfect. If you guys lived closer, I'd have you make me Cuban coffee in the afternoon as I am not so good at doing it! I really would love to win this give-a-way because I had one of these beautiful mugs and in my clumsiness I broke it! So sad! Anyway, I think the Candy Cane Cream sounds delicious! Fingers Crossed!

My favorite charm is the cafetera charm. Loved the post as always! I'm not Cuban but reading your blog has helped me understand the heart of the Cuban people! Thank you everyone for the wonderful stories!

Hello dear BBf. I have been here since before the beginning! I love your blog! Although I am not Cuban, I love and have learned to appreciate your struggles. The stories are funny, heartbreaking and very enlightening! I appreciate your blog and your recipes! We struggle with many of the same things and I am honored to be in your life. Thanks for all your prayers and encouragement. I love you definitely MORE!

What a wonderful surprise! It's true Marta (who I call Marti) has been my BFF for well over 35 years! I have been so blessed to call you my BFF. The invention of the internet has so changed the world, but for me it has been a part of my everyday life. In an instant we can be in touch with each other no matter where we are in the world. How amazing is that? And same for the ability to text in just an instant too! So, because of this amazing fact I contact with Marti many times a day! It is rare we don't text. Maybe if she is at sea! (I rarely go anywhere!) We have so many stories I could share...some I can not! :-D But I'd like to share a couple. A couple of years ago my husband Gene and I went to Disneyland. I purposely did not tell Marti, because I really was hoping to get a text from her that said she was going to visit the mouse! Now, this would be hard even now because of apps called "find my friends". But that is a whole different post! So there we were sitting at the River Belle Terrace and the text I so wanted came..."I'm going to see the mouse". HA! I had her. I asked her to tell me what she was doing so I could "live through her"! Then I proceeded to bug her with so many texts like "where are you now?" I'm sure she got annoyed with me...I sure would have. But finally she texted "getting off the Jungle Cruise! We were only feet away! So...I crept up on her and stood right behind her completely invading her space. She looks around at me with the look "can I help you?" and it registered who the wierdo was! It was so fun! I think it could have been when that one picture was taken. Anyway, it was a moment that still makes me smile from ear to ear when I think of it. One more time she texted me about her going to Disneyland. I happened to know that a couple from our church was at Disneyland that very moment. I texted her and said...Hey look for this couple *insert picture here*. They will be toting one of our scavenger hunts and should be easy to see. So she told me when they arrived in the park and I had the couple, Nick and Liz telling me where they were. When Marti saw them I said "go up to them and say "excuse me...are you from Hanford?" I couldn't believe it...she did it! It was quite a fun moment to be part of even though I wasn't really there! Next thing I knew I got a picture from both Nick and her of all of them together! Marti you've always been so fun and encouraging to me! I am truly blessed to have you as a BFF. Thank you for such a sweet and touching post. If we lived closer (I live 5 hours away) we could have coffee and encourage one another! I love you MORE!

Are you part of the Sandwich Generation? I was. Wow. It's been 16 years since my only parent, my mom, died. For about 3 years I cooked and cleaned for her. She was diabetic and ended up struggling with congested heart failure. At the time I had children at home around Junior High age that I was home schooling. What goes into a Classic Cuban Sandwich? Well. I have never made one. But I figure it has delicious pork in it! What's your favorite sandwich? I'm pretty sure this will gross everyone out but my favorite sandwich is *insert drum roll here.....banana and mayonnaise! Pretty sure it won't work in the sandwich maker but if I won I'd figure out how to make an classic Cuban sandwich....Irish style!

Hi MBFCF. I hoped to comment in time, but if not...oh well! But here is my answers...baking, well I do enjoy baking or I use to before I started working again. Now that I am home I hope to start up. My favorite recipe is actually from a 1934 Hershey's cookbook. (sorry, really thought it was Nestlé!) I'd be more than willing to try the recipe with Nestlé chocolates! The recipe is Chocolate Chip Orange Muffins! It is a delicious recipe! I use to make them for Christmas gifts, then the "pamogranate jelly" took over that spot! Kisses!

#1-Can I say all Elton John songs? I guess I might choose "Your Song" or Tiny Dancer" as they bring back fond memories of a teenager. Did we ever go to an Elton John concert together? I went to a couple in those days. I'm listening to my Elton John Pandora station right now!! #2-I HATE 3D! I was so hopping it was a fad. I thought it would run it's course by now. I get headaches from it. Whenever possible we avoid it! I hear they are making the hobbit movies in 3D, :-/ Thanks for the give away and HAPPY BIRTHDAY. I love you MORE! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-3ni-xftpg&feature=youtube_gdata_player
