Checking in.

Hello? Is anyone there? It’s me… your trusty blogger, The Cuban Reuben. I’m peeking in to say that yes, I am alive, and yes, I am just now starting to emerge from the fog of new parenthood. I hope you’ll forgive me for placing my beloved blog in second position, as I navigated the huge learning curve that has been the past year.

I wouldn’t want you to think I’d hung my chef’s hat completely. I just took a bit of a breather to get acquainted to the new role I was playing, and discovered what so many mothers before me have discovered….that I need about 5 extra hours in each day in order to chip away at my ever-growing to-do list.

I can’t promise that my posts will be more frequent from here on out, as I can barely figure out how to get out the door in under 30 minutes, but I will do my very best.

In the meantime, I leave you links to the guest posts I’ve written while I was away (and maybe I’ll sneak in a few pics of my adorable nugget).

Thanks for sticking with me, and stay tuned for more adventures in the kitchen!



Some insights into my role as a new mother.

My homage to my husband on his very first father’s day.

  1. So glad you’re back! I don’t cook much but when I do, it is to your recipes and ideas that I look first. Your little guy is adorable. What a pleasure it is to enjoy pics of our kids’ friends and watch them grow up and have fun!
