My favorite city in the world, Houston

My favorite city in the world, Houston

It’s been my home for the past 18 years. Houston, for me, is the place where I feel most comfortable. It is the city that took in a family of immigrants and opened doors for us, far beyond our wildest imaginations. It is the city where I met my wife, started a family, and eventually a business. For all intents and purposes, I guess you could say, it is my compass in the universe. The place I naturally gravitate towards no matter how far away I venture. To understand Houston, however, takes serious dedication. The burgeoning metropolis nestled amid bustling highways, byways and tollways, as well as incorporated and unincorporated annexes from the Gulf Coast to the hill country, is home to some six million residents from all over the world. The city was recently recognized as the most diverse in the United States and is well on its way to surpass Chicago as the third-largest in the country by population.

Because everything tastes better with chile

I’m not even kidding y’all. Literally E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G tastes better with a little chile. If it’s both sweet and spicy, even better. We buy these mango strips smothered in chile powder and tamarindo at the local Farmer’s Market in Houston, which has just about everything for sale. It’s the farmer’s market on Airline […]

Houston attractions not to be missed

This is part of a collaboration with DriveShop. All opinions expressed are my own. Houston is hard to explain. It’s huge and yet it feels tiny all at the same time. You can drive for an hour and still be within the city limits. Or drive one neighborhood over and […]

Tamale Festival Houston

Yes, it’s as delicious as it sounds. Anjelica and I spent the better part of our Saturday this weekend walking around Houston’s very own Tamale Festival Houston, which as you might imagine specializes in one very tasty and traditional Latino dish: tamales! They had spicy tamales, pork tamales, chicken tamales, […]

An afternoon with Kate Del Castillo in Houston

To say that I’m a fan of Kate Del Castillo is probably an understatement. Alright, it’s definitely an understatement. I’d say she’s probably right up there on my list of movie stars who I think are amazing… right after JLO I would say, LOL! I mean not to sound like […]
