If there were one thing I could change about my eating, it would be my sweet tooth. Sometimes, I’ll forgo a meal just to have something dulce. It could be just about anything, no matter how many extra calories it’s bound to contribute to the diet.

Summer is just one week away and the first thing that comes to mind for most of us is pool parties, cookouts and vacations. The last thing on our minds is usually what we’re going to cook; especially if we’re spending so much time outdoors and away from our casa. The thought of having to come up with light, fresh and enticing meals during super hot days can completely take the fun and sexy away from engaging in the kitchen.

I recently found a "What's In" insert in an American fashion magazine where the paleta was lauded as the new Mexican gourmet fruit bar to indulge in this summer. Hardly gourmet, let me put you on to something if you don't already know: This is old news to us Latinas, especially if you grew up in a traditional Latin home! (How many of you had paletas right after jumping sprinklers or playing jacks?)

Viva La Vida is not just a nifty Coldplay tune, it's also a fairly useful cookbook. Colombian chef Rafael Palomino's sophomore effort, Viva la Vida: Festive Recipes for Entertaining Latin Style, offers easy to follow recipes for entertaining—Latin style. The brain behind Sonora restaurant, Chef Palomino's dishes takes his reader on a culinary roadtrip of Latin American flavors and traditions using a basic and accessible approach.

Who doesn't like great (Latin) food and cool "scene-y" spots? Especially when they're top secret! To enter Cienfuegos, the new Cuban rum bar/restaurant that recently opened in NYC, you have to enter the secretive location through the back of the Carteles sandwich shop. (No, seriously.) Show your ID, hope that there's availability--as its first come first serve--and finally get escorted up the stairs to a place that resembles Candyland/ Barbieworld, only more chic.

When it comes to making flan and using the pressure cooker to make mean, savory meals, I have it mastered. But, I have to admit, there are still a few cooking methods that have me stumped. I used to think grilling was one of them. For the longest, it was almost another language to me. You know how we, as women, think: That’s for the guys to handle—turning on the gas, lighting up the fire, brushing the food, shuffling hot charcoal, etc.
