Feliz Cinco De Mayo! As I have mentioned before I am of Mexican decent so I felt it was appropriate to share a little Mexicana joy today with you! Back in So Cal, today is one of my favorite holidays as the streets are filled with mariachis, flautas, churros and cervezas. Since I have moved out to New York I have thrown an annual Mexican fiesta the weekend that Cinco de Mayo falls on. The past couple years we’ve had everything from piñatas to ice luges to margarita machines to large amounts of catered food. But this year, I’m going much simpler and just having a few couples over and I’m going to make my mother’s enchiladas and do a simple, but delicious taco station. As I’m not going to start the cooking till tomorrow, you’re just gonna have to wait for the recipes!
But in the spirit of Cinco de Mayo, I thought I would share a few inspirations of mine that were hecho en Mexico.
Miss Frida Kahlo
She was such a free spirit and so secure in herself and her work. Miss Kahlo opened the doors for not only Mexican woman, but for all woman, allowing us to feel free to express ourselves loudly and with an amazing amount of color.

And of course, Mexican Athletes
Hee-hee… I just had to sneak in Mark Sanchez! Go Jets!
Hope everyone has a great Cinco de Mayo! Get those margaritas mixing and those coronas cheersing! Salud!
