January Goals

So I decided I am not torturing myself with impossible resolutions this year, why punish myself like that. Every year we draw up these hard resolutions, statements that are not even detailed, they are just blunt and huge, and extremly HARD to accomplish. In the end we are left with disappointment and sadness.

This year I am setting small goals for each month and I wanted to share them with you to see if it inspires you to do the same and of course you can share them with me in the comment section, we can support and motivate each other.

Happy Holidays


It’s 2:32pm here in the Dominican Republic, I woke up a few hours ago, tradition in my house means breakfast of Telera (a type of bread) and Hot Chocolate, now I get to lounge in my pajamas, watch an awesome Big Bang Theory Marathon and relax with my family. Later on tonight I think I will go to the movies because today Into The Woods premiers here and I am really excited.

I hope you have a great time with your family and friends these holidays, I want to thank you all, I reached 100 Followers on Monday and I am so happy, I love that you guys love to read my recipes and insights.

I will take the next few days off and I will return on Monday, have a great time guys.

Marinated Mozzarella

Marinated 2

Hey Guys,

I’ve always wanted to do this, and I finally tried it out. When I eat my mozzarella I always dress it with olive oil and some dried basil or oregano on the spot. Last week in the supermarket I saw that they sell feta marinated pieces and I thought it would be great to do this with the mozzarella. I searched and found lots of recipes (apparently this is very popular) however I made my take on it and I have let it marinate for overnight and it was delicious. Serve with pita chips, crackers or saltines, you can be even bolder and use it to top your pizza for a flavorful dish! I hope you guys enjoy it!!

Marinated Mozzarella


  • 1 1/2 Cups of Small Mozzarella Balls
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Crushed Red Pepper
  • Oregano
  • Dry Basil


Mix all the herbs together including the salt, place in jar and top with olive oil. Allow to marinate overnight, serve at room temperature.

Note: There are no quantities of the ingredients because this is best made to taste, I just wanted to share my favorite flavor combination with you!





PS. It makes a GREAT last minute Christmas Gift, just wrap some ribbon around it!

I hope you guys enjoy this!
