A Half-Birthday Date

A Half-Birthday Date

I have the best boyfriend in the world (fight me), and I am constantly looking for new ideas of what to do for him!

Argentine Empanadas

Argentine Empanadas

So let me just start out by saying that this is my favorite food from Argentina! They are so fun to make and even more fun to eat! There’s nothing like rolling the edges of the pastry to perfection. I’ve made them side by side with a 92-year-old woman from Argentina, and also with my […]

A Walk in the Rain

A Walk in the Rain

I remember the day I grew tired of the rain. It seemed to mock us as we walked a few more miles in the ankle-deep mud. I felt discouraged that we had talked with so many people and no one would listen to two, soaking wet missionaries who spoke very broken Spanish. For the first […]
