Browsing recipes online today, I wound up on Bitchin’Camero who just so happened to be featured on Miami New Times’ Short Order Blog a couple of days ago. I love stumbling across new blogs, and especially from people based in Miami. Growing up in Miami I’m just accustomed to certain ingredients and I love seeing how other people are using them too. Things like arepas, guava, cafe con leche, tostadas, yuca, and plantains are some of my favorite “Miami” foods.
Bitchin’Camero had me with her “from Miami with love” tagline, Miami-inspired foods, and beautiful photos.

Happy New Year! 2010 has been a busy one, though it has meant that I have neglected writing on kitchen window a bit. I received this 2010 Year in Review from WordPress, and I found it interesting. It’s also motivated me to continue to post on this site throughout 2011. I have been thinking of great things to post including new recipes, events in Miami, information on arts productions around the world, and everyday info that I have come across, so look forward to postings about those topics in 2011. In case you’re interested in checking out what I’ve been up to in 2010, here are some of the projects I’ve been working on: Mapping Miami, the Miami Art Salon, founding Blackbird Arts and Research, being an artist-in-residence at the Deering Estate, my dissertation research about art, Miami, and the Caribbean, Yelping, and overhauling my personal website.
Thanks for reading kitchen window! Here’s the 2010 Year in Review:
