Hey All!

It’s hard to believe that the holidays are already here! I love this time of year as it allows me to spend time with my family. As Thanksgiving quickly approaches, I often reflect on how we like to spend our Thanksgiving.

It’s always been a family tradition to wake up and watch all our favorite Holiday Shows on television. We then like to start cooking early as we like to start eating early. We are one of those families that likes to eat all day on Thanksgiving. It’s the one day where we make dishes that we don’t have often. We don’t make the traditional Thanksgiving foods. We make pastelillos aka empanadas and…


Arros con gandules and often times we make Pernil aka roasted pork thigh. We do make Turkey, but it’s not seasoned in a traditional way. We put olives, garlic, and sazon to season our turkey. We can’t forget that we also make Pan De Muerto and cheesecakes.


Besides the food, seeing all the family we don’t get to see year round is one of the best parts of Thanksgiving. I love having a house that is filled with laughter and chatter over our family recipes. It’s nice to have that love and support in our house for the holiday.

Through the voice of real people and families JCPenney has chosen real choir singer, boys and girls, to be part of the JCPenney choir and help tell the stories of their multicultural families and how they experience holidays in the US. They wanted to share the spirit of Christmas – the real spirit that lives in Latino homes in the US, a celebration of real-life Holiday traditions. JCPenney is the first retail brand to celebrate what a REAL Christmas is like for Latinos through stories by Latino children and their families in a series of short videos.

Check out one of the first videos below:

Stay tuned for even more of these fabulous videos.
