Hi, my name is Maria Mongillo. I was raised in a Cuban household where food and family were very important. My mom would let me help her start dinner which started my love of cooking. In this blog not only will you see Cuban dishes but my love of other cultural cooking. I am willing to share recipes and discuss the outcome. Now the fashion part I can also attribute to my mother she always had an eye for fashion. But to her disappointment on her hopes I would become an accountant, I studied fashion and had a career in management. Both of these passions have brought me here to this blog. Please join me in a new journey.
