About Me

basic n delicious

I’m a personal chef, born and raise in Costa Rica and now living in San Diego, sharing my knowledge and love for food. I’m a recipe developer, lover of chocolate, mom, and wife, which are my two more important jobs.
I’m a crafty learner but I also have some tips and tricks under my sleeve.

Inspiring you to create deliciously and easy everyday recipes with basic ingredients, baking and sharing all my favorite things.

Born and raise in Costa Rica, my passion for food comes from my grandmother, she was always cooking so many delicious dishes and inventing new ones. She was my biggest influence and my inspiration when cooking traditional dishes.

I work as a restaurant manager but I was always catering parties for my friends and family and when we move to San Diego I starting blogging and sharing my basic recipes for all the moms out there always looking for different, easy and delicious recipes.

Eventually, this passion has become my favorite thing ever, and now I not only share recipes but also tips, ideas, reviews and more.

My Favorite Products for the Holidays #ad #SealsForGood

As you know the holidays are really around the corner and we have to have on hand good quality products to ensure that we present to our friends and family a delicious dessert, bread or meal.

I love to use 100% Real California Milk products because they are the best quality we can have.

The Real California Milk Seal isn’t just another logo. It represents the commitment by California dairy farm families to producing quality milk that goes into the dairy products families need. To demonstrate this dedication to nourishing families and communities, Real California Milk is leading an initiative called Seals for Good. The campaign has been going on since September as we’ve been supporting families affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma in Florida and Texas. But now, we are expanding the campaign to help those in our own backyard affected by the wildfires.

Real California Milk will donate $5 to the Great American Milk Drive every time a user shares a photo of our Real California Milk seal on social using the hashtag #SealsforGood (up to $10k in CA and $20k in TX/FL).

For many children and families who face hunger, even basic staples like milk may be missing. The Great American Milk Drive, in partnership with Feeding America, has delivered more than 1 million gallons of milk to food banks across the country since 2014 to help families get the nutrients they need.

I’m always recommending to my friends different and better products they can add to their baked goods and here I want to show you my favorites

Grated Cheese
Flavored Cream

Just remember to look for the Real California Milk Seal.
