Growing up Puerto Rican and visiting my family's home, I realize how much of the Puerto Rican culture is hanging around in the kitchen. Here's some things you probably have...
1 - Fake Fruit
This was always a tease.
2 - Pots & Pans in the Oven
You gotta agree this is pretty damn smart.
3 - A Fridge Covered in Magnets
Oh, there goes the fake fruits again! This time on the fridge...
4 - Butter Containers Used as Tupperware
5 - Freshly Made Sofrito
Breathe in, breath out...smell the most wonderful smell on this planet.
6 - A Freezer Filled With Pasteles
It's always pastel season.
7 - The Required Seasonings: Sazon + Adobo
If you don't have these two items, you're doing something wrong.
8 - Frozen Pernil
Pernil is not for used everyday, but we have to make sure we have it in the freezer when we're feeling celebratory!
9 - A Pilón
This is traditional as hell, and super efficient.
10 - Abuela Being Awesome
Physically if she's alive, and spiritually if she's not...
