My parents met in NY and that’s where I was born. I’m a mish mash of cultures which I really love. I embrace the work my parents did to get to and succeed in the US and I hope to live up to their legacy. I speak Spanish fluently and know a little bit of a bunch of other languages including French, Portuguese, Italian, and the Arabic alphabet (along with a few words, but really, just a few). Languages interest me probably because I think it’s really important to try to understand individuals as being made up by their past, their ancestor’s past, and their environment. I think that the first step to doing this is communication, ergo my random compilation of languages. My family is super important to me. I have my parents and my sister and since June 11th, 2016, my husband!
Annndd here’s a picture of my puppy. Yes, I heard that squeal, she’s adorable.
My friends are also a very large important part of my life, but I can’t mention them all on here (cause I have so many, you know? ha…ha…haaa)
So now that you know a bit about me…
Why did you decide to make a food blog?
I like cooking and I like sharing, hence the food blog. Plus it’s like a personal recipe book!
Why three birds and a scone for the title?
Well I’m a bit silly, and I really like puns so this title resonated with me in that sense. However, it does also have meaning. Three birds represent my three cooking influences: Colombian, Egyptian, and American (sometimes specifically Southern) as well as the three pillars of this blog: Healthy, yummy, and practical. And one scone…well who doesn’t like scones??
What’s your favorite food?
I love raw honey. Anyone who knows me may tell you I’m a bit obsessed. They’re right. I mean how can you not like honey? Unless you’re allergic, then I am so so sorry. But besides that, it’s nature’s wonder food! It’s sweet, it doesn’t go bad, it can be healthy for you in small amounts, and it even has medicinal properties! Whatttt, that’s crazy. One of my favorite Tennessee suppliers is TruBee Honey. They have a wide variety of flavors based on the season and the available wild flowers. Check out their website and maybe buy some if you want to be amazed! http://www.trubeehoney.com/
