Joy Of Spanish Cooking


Hola y Bienvenido/a! Hello and Welcome!

My name is Ivette and I am a dual citizen! Originally, I from Catalonia, Spain but in 2014 I moved to the United States and I currently live in Maryland with my husband Richard (number 1 taster, thank you!), my baby girl Beulah my rescue dog Vicky and my two (big!) cutie cats Pintxo & Pastifa. Full house!

I love Spanish food. In Spain there is always something to celebrate, gathering with friends and family…

We have THREE dishes at every meal! Yes, 3! You will have a first full dish like pasta and for the second dish you will have fish/meat and then dessert, and after dessert coffee…. When I am in Spain and get together with my family (there are 31 of us!), we can start lunch at 2:30pm and finish it at 7pm…

I have always loved cooking. My grandmother it is a great, great cook and I think my love of cooking is because of her.
When I was in college, my favorite breaks, were getting into the kitchen and cooking or baking something. I was able to escape the normal daily routine of law school.

In this blog, I would like to share some Spanish recipes as well as other delicious recipes.

Bon profit!

  3. Hello Lyvette – I see you have liked my ‘About’ page and guess what? I like yours too! I expect if I was clever I might work out how you found me but I prefer to put most things down to good chance and kismet. So just now I am going to take a little trip round your delicious sounding blog and I’ll bet I end up in your band of followers in about five minutes from now …..
