Signs You Grew Up in a Latino Home

If you recall any of half of these, then you most likely grew up latino.

Signs You Grew Up in a Latino Home

1. La Chancla was your worst enemy

When your mom got mad at you and whipped this out, you knew it was time to run.

2. Vicks saved your life

Even if your leg was broken, vicks was always the solution

3. Sazon Goya was (and still is) life

Your mom never cooks without it, it's a necessity

4. Watching Laura was always jaw dropping

The dramatics, the fights and, of course, Laura's favorite phrase always made that ridiculous show a must watch

5. Cleaning

When your mom was blasting music early in the morning, you knew you were going to spend your day cleaning the house.

6. Your stove was full of pots and pans

Before cooking something in the stove, you had to remember to remove everything because latinos always store the pots inside.

7. La Llorona

Your parents or grandparents would scare you into thinking that if you were bad La Llorona would come and take you away.

8. Sancocho was the go-to soup

Even in 90 degree weather your mom would still prepare Sancocho or what some like to call it, Caldo.

9. "Mami tengo hambre" "No, hay frijoles en la casa"

Your mom always had food prepared, no matter what.

10. The birthday parties

Little kids birthday parties were always the place to be. The good food, random clown, and piñata was typical.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
