I can’t believe that it’s already almost Christmas! Man, time flies! I have to say, I’m looking forward to disconnecting for a few days, spending some quality time with my son and family and cooking some serious grub!

For me, the holidays have become much more meaningful and special ever since I had my son. It’s so fun shopping with him and having him help me pick out gifts for all his cousins, aunts and uncles and grandparents. And it’s such a special time of year where I get to teach him all about our family traditions and get him involved in the festivities. Part of that is celebrating Las Posadas, which is a nine day celebration where families, especially children, recreate the Christmas Story, dressing as Mary and Joseph and parading around the neighborhood asking for shelter. It’s all about community and caring for one another. There are also parties at different homes each night, where people get together, eat, drink and be merry!

Tamales are a traditional holiday food and my recipe, which has been passed down from past generations, is super easy to make and fun for the kids to help out with. I hope you enjoy the recipe and this special time with your family and friends.

Happy holidays!
