Always Look on the Bright Side of Life — LatinoFoodie Serves as Positivity Ambassadors

by Stephen Chavez June 13, 2012

“Always look on the bright side of life…” LOVE that song from Monty Python’s award-winning musical Spamalot. But it’s true. We always have a choice on how we view things and respond to what life hands us. For example, so your tortillas break when trying to make enchiladas. Don’t sweat it. Turn the dish into an enchilada casserole and no one will ever know the difference. 

Whether in the kitchen or at work, this summer let’s all plan to remain positive. Life is too short to live it otherwise. You see, Latinofoodie was recently selected to serve as Positivity Ambassadors for the California Milk Processor Board. We were honored, but also a little taken back. What did that mean exactly? Were we to be cheerleaders for this game called life? People are going through rough times right now. Friends are out of jobs still and families are finding increasingly harder to make ends meet. But that’s when it hit us. This is exactly when we need to send out positive energy to our readers — during the rough patches of life.


There were about 20 other Latino/a bloggers included as ambassadors. Our mission will be to spread the message about the positive benefits of drinking milk by sharing personal experiences via posts, photos and videos with our readers.  As you know, “El Maestro del Vaso Medio Lleno” (The Master of the Glass Half-Full) – a milk enthusiast is the Positivity Guru who invites us to create a more positive lifestyle and see the positive side of things. Check out the site and learn what other messages El Maestro del Vaso Medio Lleno shares with you.  Naturally, as food bloggers, we’ll also try to incorporate some recipes during this campaign using dairy products.

El Maestro teaches that the benefits of milk include healthy teeth, a beautiful smile, and it helps our body recover after exercise, helps us sleep better, and helps us have healthier and smoother skin. That sounds good to us!

Here’s a video the campaign shared with us to get us moving into a healthier and positive way of life.  What better way to get active than to dance? Don’t forget to pour yourself an ice-cold glass of milk  after you dance to refuel yourself. 

Did you have a chance to check out the website? Okay, okay, we know El Maestro del Vaso Lleno is a fictional character, but you can still follow his message of  Positivismo on Facebook.

Maple Cream Easter Eggs

by Femme Fraîche March 20, 2016

Maple Cream Easter EggsEvery year when I was a kid, I could count on two things in my Easter basket – marshmallow eggs and maple cream eggs. Each served different purposes. The maple cream Easter eggs were my favorites and what I squealed over even more than finding plastic hidden eggs that held a dollar bill or a tiny toy. The marshmallow eggs were nothing I ever fancied and always found their way into the freezer for...

Salsa Casera Recipe – Super Hot and Delicious

by Stephen Chavez March 12, 2016

Salsa Casera or House Salsa is one of the simplest and most flavorful salsas that brings a robust heat and a smokey flavor from the charred tomatoes and chile peppers. Beware! I like heat and so this recipe has one dried Scorpion pepper added to the mix. Scorpion peppers are one of the hottest chiles in the world, with a mean heat of more than 1.2 million Scoville heat units (SHUs).

Using a...

Mushroom and Kale Egg Bake

by Femme Fraîche March 06, 2016

Mushroom and Kale Egg BakeAdulting is hard stuff. Sure, there are the big things like taking care of kids or parents, unexpected car and home repairs, dealing with awful work situations, but sometimes the littlest things feel the most difficult. These days, one of my biggest dilemmas is finding what to feed myself in the mornings that is convenient, nourishing, and so tasty I’ll be psyched to eat it a few days a week. This...
