De La Rosa


One of my co-workers let me try one of these God-sent creations and I was hooked. I wanted to know where, how much and how many per box, etc. Well, she is such a dear-heart that she bought me a box full. Before I even said thank you I opened one and popped it in my mouth (how embarrassing, I do have manners!) I laughed at being embarrassed, gave her a hug and said thank you. Once you taste these little babies, well, that's when you'll know how good they really are. My, my, my word!

After just one bite I began to imagine what I could bake with these little Mexico candies. Oh, it tastes wonderful! It has the taste of a Butterfinger candy bar without the sticky crunch and chocolate (trust me it does not need the chocolate and that says a lot coming from me, Ms. Chocoholic) and the candy doesn't get stuck in between my teeth.
So, how about putting this little bite of wonderful inside a hot fudge brownie? Or drizzle them with chocolate and top with peanuts or do as I did with whipped cream and make your own little melt-in-your-mouth delight. You can make tiny little pie shells and place one in each and make a peanutbutter pie-ettes. Why not crumble it on top of a pie or ice cream or (Ahem) you can serve it to the ladies at tea or garden party; it will make a lovely presentation. Oh, the list can go on and on. But let me tell you, dear, you are going to love it!

You can find them in most markets that have a Mexican or International aisle. In the Phoenix area you can find them at Food City.

How glad I am that you stopped by for a visit.

My 800.00 Hat


I just love pillbox hats. Jacqueline Kennedy introduced us to such a wonderful look of fashion with her little pillbox hats. She was of an elegance that our country was proud to claim and admire.

The Espinoza's enjoy going to yard sales, especially estate sales. My brother, Lupe, while on his way to Arizona, stopped at an estate sale and bought several pillbox hats for fifty cents apiece. He must have bought close to ten or twelve hats in all. He had taken them to my mother's house while I was visiting with her and when I saw this hat with all my favorite colors, cream, blues, greens and browns. I immediately exclaimed...

"Oh! This one is beautiful."
"You can have it", was his reply.

I quickly took out all the tissue to try it on when I saw there was an envelope inside. "Lupe, you may want to open this", I said while handing him the envelope. He began counting, one, two, three...eight crisp one hundred dollar bills. He handed one of those bills to me and two to my mom. He said he had been praying for God to help him with a certain amount of money and God gave it to him. Who would have thought that buying a hat for fifty cents would give him seven hundred ninety-nine dollars and fifty cents back in change. I like God's math because it always gets multiplied.

My dear brother, Lupe is no longer with us, but his many testimonies still live on.

Thank you for stopping by for a visit.

That's Just What A Mom Would Do


One of my kids said, "Mom, I want to show you this picture." It was so cute I couldn't help saying, "Aww. That's just what a mom would do." They thought I would like it and the more I thought about it I realized that this is what my child sees in me. Aww! I love you, too, Son.

There are so many to look at, would you like to see more pictures? Click here.

Brazos Cubrietos


Brazos cubrietos con mangas largas. A long sleeve jacket is fashionable and of modest style. Quite frankly, it looks great.
