1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Mothers Day Table Setting on: May 17, 2017 01:36:08 PM
Our home is the party location for all the celebrations for our family and while my husband insists that we use real cutlery (he hates plastic disposable cutlery) I demand disposable paper plates and cups.
To dress up the table while using disposable paper plates and plastic table cover and cups, I take a little time to add a few crafty touches.

For this Mothers Day celebration I added a flower print fabric runner.
I decorated the plastic cups with washi tape

I made a cake box centerpiece

Two vases made out of tin cans wrapped in rose scented drawer liners.

Thank you rackycoo for featuring my Cubanitas Cascarones on the Featured Projects page.
My granddaughters loved the Cubanitas Cascarones so much that each girl saved 1 Cascaron to keep as a souvenir.

Each holiday, the girls and I make a craft together, this Easter we made Rice Krispie Eggs.

In the historical colonial zone of Old Havana there are some female flower sellers wearing bright eye catching traditional dresses for tourists to take pictures of them or with them.
The ladies are licensed state workers and the places they can work and the number of ladies are controlled by the Old Havana Tourism Office (notice their ID badges)
Many tourists assume that these dresses are the traditional national Cuban dress, but they are not. These dresses and turbans are the authentic colonial period dress style of working women, such as flower, candy or fruit sellers, and were my inspiration for this years Cascarones (Confetti Eggs).

Cubanitas Cascarones

Once again, because I only make 2 dozen Cascarones (one dozen for each of my granddaughters) I like to make them with a theme. The eggs turbans are made of red crepe paper with red, purple, pink, hot pink and orange mini paper roses.

9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Nurses & Nursing Assistants gifts on: December 23, 2016 02:08:00 PM
My father resides in a nursing home for almost two years now. I like to give a little token of thanks and good wishes at Christmas to his nurses and nursing assistants that take care of him everyday with kindness and lots of patience.

This Christmas I made 15 little gift sets with an apron, a cookie recipe, a cookie cutter, a matching kitchen towel and potholder in two color, red and green with a little jar of homemade guava marmalade.

Thanks everyone.

Steiconi, I wish I could have a guava tree. I am terrible at gardening or growing anything, I am really bad; I tell everyone that I have a black thumb instead of a green one =)

We buy guavas from our local Mexican market, they are kind of expensive, but is a little luxury we give to ourselves. I usually buy lots of guava paste to make pastries and desserts.

My guava  marmalade recipe is very simple:
ripe red guavas
brown sugar - Quantity of sugar depends of amount of guavas. Sorry, I never measure ingredients when I cook, I just eyeball it.
1 cinnamon stick
1 star anise
1 tspn of lemon juice.

Wash and peel the guavas
Cut them in half.
Put guavas in a pot with the brown sugar, cinnamon stick and star anise.
Add enough water to cove the guavas. Add lemon juice.
Bring to a boil and cook until soft and easy to mash.
Pour cooked guava and juice through a fine-mesh sieve to remove seeds.
Return to pot and  bring to a full-roiling boil stirring constantly.
Lower temperature to medium and continue stirring until it thickens.

I have several guava recipes in my blog, its in Spanish but you can use the Google Translate Widget on the right side of the page. http://mycubantraumas.blogspot.com/search/label/Guava%20-%20Guayaba
