I’m not Irish but I like the green decorations spread throughout the stores and malls. I love the clover light my neighbors are having in front of the house. I wonder which one of them is Irish. My favorite color is green, so it’s no surprise I like St. Patrick. I’m not a big fan…

I wonder if I’m the only one that has “non artistic” days In the last week all the photos I took were rubbish (and I’m being kind to them). I’m far from being a great food photographer but there are days no matter how many pictures I take all of them land in the recycle…

Rice and beans

Baked rice and beans | Roxanashomebaking.com

Pin It My husband is probably one of the pickiest eaters I’ve met. We’re so different when it comes to eating.  I’m more of an experimental type of person. When we eat out I, most of the time, choose something I haven’t tried before. When I see a new ingredient at the store I buy…

Orange Cranberry Scones | roxanashomebaking.com

   Sometimes I wish we lived in Florida. I wish I had a couple of orange, grapefruit and lemon trees in my back yard. If I have to top the fruits we most eat around here I think it’s a tie between citrus and berries. On a regular week we eat around 10-15 lbs of…
