Learning Express is an amazing toy store filled with educational toys that will please every kid. I am very fortunate to have one 2 blocks away and my daughters can spend hours inside.

My little one loves picking at little animals and the science kits. On the other hand, my oldest is mesmerized by all the arts and crafts projects The Learning Express offers. From mirrors to boxes, she wants them all. Both of them also love the well stocked book section. Our local bookstore unfortunately closed last year so at least we can still browse at books.

I received great toys that are part of the HOT and Exclusive Toys for the 2014 Holidays! There’s something for everybody.

The best part of growing up in a multi-cultural household is the delicious party food that my mom and grandma used to cook. I have such a strong Jewish and Latin influence and that’s the inspiration behind this melt in your mouth super tender Jalapeño Brisket Recipe.

Jalapeños are not very used in Venezuelan cuisine but it is very Latin and I love experimenting with different pepper flavors. Reading this recipe you probably would think that this beef is spicy but on the contrary. I used Tabasco Green Jalapeño Pepper sauce which is one of the mildest of all hot sauces. When it cooks, it gives out this intoxicating peppery aroma and the pan juices actually come out super sweet with a subtle tone of heat on the back. It is so subtle that my daughters loved the brisket and didn’t even notice the heat.
