June 1st marks the start of Caribbean American Heritage Month, a time when we honor the many contributions to U.S. culture made by those of Caribbean descent. Included in this vast group are Puerto Ricans, Cuban Americans, and Dominican Americans.
Naturally, we celebrate all holidays with food, which is why we’ve collected our favorite Latin recipes from Caribbean islands. Happy Caribbean American Heritage Month!
May is National Burger Month, and in its honor, we’ve posted collections of our favorite burger recipes every other Friday in May. Today brings us to our final post on all things burger, and we’re focusing on veggie versions.
From burgers made of fiery peppers to sweet fried plantains, we’ve got something for every burger-loving vegetarian out there.
About a week ago, popular food website Eater.com published a video titled “Real Chefs Cook Dumb Recipes.” It featured a white celebrity chef making (and making fun of) nachos from Kris Jenner’s In the Kitchen with Kris cookbook.
'Sounds funny', you might be thinking, or 'I gotta’ see this!' Sadly, it's not funny, because while the food world was incensed that the Kardashian mom-ager had the cajones to write a cookbook, we were incensed that the food world was incensed.
Rice is the workhorse of the Latin meal. Delicious, satisfying, and easy to make, it never gets the props it deserves. Today, we’re setting that right by highlighting that hero of the midweek meal, that counterpart to frijoles, that beloved but oft-ignored staple: rice recipes.
Like a good friend, rice stands by your side when you need it and flies solo when you want some space. Either way, we love you, rice!
We all want a ballet body, but let's be honest: wanting and having the discipline for getting are two very different things. Dancer diets are known for being strict, limited, and difficult to maintain. Latino dancers face a special challenge: mami's home cooking.
In this exclusive interview with members of Dance Theatre of Harlem, Mark Morris Dance Group, Alvin Ailey, and more, we got their tips for staying lean, fit, and healthy. You'll be surprised what they have to say!

PepsiCo is putting the lime in their cola cup and shaking it all up!
The soft drink company is targeting the Latino community by re-releasing their lime-infused cola, Pepsi Limón. This time, however, the drink will not be made with the high fructose corn syrup and artificial lime by-product they used in the 2005 version of the soft drink, Pepsi Lime. The new and nutritionally improved Pepsi Limón contains 2% real lime juice and real sugar.
Everyone loves a road trip. What everyone doesn’t love are the icky “foods” (and we use this term loosely) eaten in the car while on said road trip. A burrito served in a box, kept warm with a heat lamp, and sold at the only gas station for the next fifty miles? No, thanks.
If only there were roadside stalls selling fresh juices, tortillas, and tamales. Sadly, "We’re not in Mexico anymore, Dorothea!"
Celebrating Memorial Day today with a barbecue or an afternoon by the pool? Don’t forget to add some sizzle with sweet, fizzy wines! Too many people think summer is for beer and burgers, but sparkling wine is a great way to elevate casual get-togethers without sacrificing their spontaneous spirit.
Check out our guide to the best sparkling wines for saucing up your summer parties! Salud.
