The Hungry Latina Turns 5!

Facebook is great for reminding me of things that have happened in the past. For instance, today, it reminded me that 5 years ago today, I started my blog! What?! I can't believe that The Hungry Latina turned 5 today. How quickly time flies when you're having fun. A LOT has changed since then as well.

Originally, I started the blog as an creative outlet during a tough time (depression sucks). It has evolved over the years and has turned into a myriad of different things. I've learned so much along the way and keep growing as a blogger. I never thought that it would grow into what it has today and I'm so thankful that people actually find my content interesting. So from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU!

It's been a while since I posted and I have mixed feelings about this. Life has been somewhat crazy and the blogging has been set to the back burner. This is not due to a lack of content. I have TONS of material I want to write about, it's just finding the time and bandwidth to do so. My day job has been keeping me at work for 10-11 hours and by the time I get home, I am mentally exhausted and just want to veg out. This is okay occasionally, but it's gotten out of hand. It's time to take back my life again and have a good work/life balance.

So my goal is to join the 5AM workout club again in order to get my fitness on again. I hate mornings, but getting it done first thing in the morning will be the recipe for success. I've done it before, so I can do it again. It's just going to take accountability and A LOT of coffee.

I also want to make sure that I'm getting at least 2 posts a week for you guys. Great content is crucial to keep a blog going, and that's my promise to you. So be on the lookout for more posts and yummy recipes to try out.

In the meantime, here's a few recipes to hold you over until I get new content posted!
