Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

New holy grail recipe for banana bread! Full of chocolate chips and so moist, it's heaven in your mouth, really.

Seriously, Tzatziki greek fries, Cheesy baked gnocchi. How can you resist? This recipe is a straight copy from her, so I can't take the credit. But I made it and ATE IT and that's what counts! Also, two banana recipes in…

Slow Cooker Black Bean & Corn Chili

Super bowl Sunday, y'all! I must admit, I haven't watched ONE football game this season, BUT that doesn't mean I won't be taking part of the festivities!  I'm a chili fanatic, and always in the mood for a nice hot bowl of it anytime the temp dips down. So I thought I'd share this super rich & hearty chili. I put a spin on the original recipe by using black bean and corn. You guys, this chili is FIRE! You can…

LASAGNA ROLLS

This recipe is inspired from a friends instagram who pretty much made all my lasagna dreams come true by simply rolling up lasagna noodles with your original lasagna fillings. They make for perfect individual portions. Why haven't we thought of this before?! So here it is... meaty, cheesy, creamy lasagna rolled into perfect sharing sizes. This recipe is perfect for a large family and serves about 10. I brought it over to my family's house and needless to say, it…

Happy 2016! Hope you're all recovered from your holiday madness and fun! The holidays were wonderful to us, we got to spend time with some of our family in PR and go on lots of jungle adventures with the boys. If you've seen my snapchat, you know what I'm talking about! Haha. I'm glad to be back home now and ready to take this year by the horns! Speaking of which, I've wrapped up my first photoshoot of the year with a…

My announcement

  I'm beyond excited to announce that I'm officially named Hello Sonshine Photography! This may not seem like a surprise at first, since most of you know that I've been working for little over a year now. But some things have changed. For starters, I really only started doing this as a hobby because I just love photography. All the elements of taking a photo are special to me. It's about the energy, the light and most importantly, the story. At first, I…

Newlyweds Grethel & Herson

Hello December! Aside from the holidays, I love that this season brings lots of weddings.  Most of you know that I recently had the privilege to photograph my very first one! I'm so honored to have been chosen to document this special day to the wonderful couple, Gretel and Herson. I learned so much this day that no amount of study or practice could've prepared me for. Between thunderous rain and late hair & makeup, I'm surprised we made it to the…

Pony Rides

The holiday weekend ended too soon! Am I the only one that feels this way? We almost didn’t celebrate Thanksgiving this year but luckily we got together last minute to cook, eat and be thankful. After our one day thanksgiving coma, we decided to take the kiddies horseback riding at Tradewinds Park in Coconut Creek. It was such a beautiful day. I only wish my camera battery didn’t die so I could snap more photos. If wherever you live has…

New beginnings

It's been a while since I've posted. Mainly because motherhood! But also because there was a family loss in the beginning of the month and we've all been grieving in our own ways. I did attempt to write my grief at one point, hoping to find enlightenment through writing but I couldn't post any of it. So I'm just letting time do its work and accepting what is, letting go of what was, and having faith in what will be. On a much…

Pumpkin Patch Day

We are loving fall over here! The weather is still pretty toasty in the afternoons but gets cool and breezy in the evenings, which makes up for it. So yesterday I took the boys to a play date with our friends at the pumpkin patch. I took some photos of the kids, but with toddlers thats nearly impossible! Roman and his buddy Lucas were loving all the "puh-kins" and picking them up, rolling them around, and well you know, getting into trouble!…
