Tonight is the big event - the launching ceremony of the new Que Rica Vida.com! As I and my fellow Latina mommy and cooking bloggers get ready for the evening, the General Mills event team is putting finishing touches on what is sure to be a fantastic and tasty affair.
At the recommendation of a fellow blogger, I took a peek at the event floor where the music was pumping, the napkins were being folded and everything was being set up, lined up and shined up for a delicious evening full of surprises.
Some of the Special Guests here tonight will include Karla Martinez, Univision's Despierta America co-host, and Ursula Mejia-Melgar, Que Rica Vida editor, in addition to Adamari Lopez, Dra. Aliza and many others. Tonight's activities will include tastings, cook-offs, meet and greets and a "Charla Contra Cancer" by a panel of experts.
One of the gifts provided to us, the mommy bloggers, is a "mini-libro de recetas" Cocina Betty Crocker. (The full version is available for sale online.) In celebration of Que Rica Vida, I am going to share each of the recipes I cook for my family from the mini-libro with you. I'll take photos, share experiences and let you know what my kids - and hubby - thought of each recipe.
Well, on to the fiesta, because at least for tonight... yo no soy la que guisa!
