me and my monkey

I´m a 26-year-old translator who recently moved from the suburbs to downtown Buenos Aires, which means I´m juggling living on my own, life as a freelance translator, among many other things.

Food has always been a great inspiration for me, and now I´m taking the opportunity to experiment more in the kitchen and to share this passion of mine with like-minded souls.

    Great Blog, love reading your recipes . Iam from San Juan Puerto Rico (Island of Enchantment)
    We were in BA back in November and loved it.

  2. Awww the cutest picture of you and Phoebe ever!


  3. Ah, ha…Phoebe…Plenty sweet one!

  4. Carmelo- Sorry, long overdue reply. Thanks for the compliments for my blog and for my city.

    Lisa- Thanks! As I said when I posted this pic for Behind the Apron, a cute puppie makes anyone look good lol Though this is actually Phoebe´s sister, Yoko. I still need to achieve a good picture of Phoebe and me.

    Tanna- Thanks!

  5. I’m not even sure how I found you…just going through the maze of food blogs I guess…

    I like your blog and especially the pictures!!! I started my own recently (http://limeinheaven.wordpress.com) and am getting the hang of taking pictures of food (harder than I thought :).

    I look forward to trying some of your recipes..

    Hi Pip,
    My mother-in-law just returned to B.A. after a month long visit. We tried making alfajores and they turned out really well, all of my friends and neighbors were happy with my attempts. My question for you is about medias lunas. Do you have a good recipe for making these tasty treats? Thank you 🙂


    Hola Pip
    Sos argentina?
    Tambien yo soy traductora y chef. Estoy viviendo en Londres y muchas de las fotos que posteaste me traen muchos recuerdos!
    Esta muy piola el blog y muy bueno el layout.

  8. Hi there, I’m presuming you are originally from the states by your use of the english language, but maybe I’m wrong. Its great to see a blog from someone in Argentina. I spent all last year working in Cordoba launching a program at a nonprofit and I miss asado so much it hurts…not to mention those devilish Havanas shops in BsAs where you can get dulce de leche cake….yum. Those sticky buns look delicious, I’m gonna have to whip some up soon.

    Hi!, I’m producer from Buenos Aires and we’re looking for US & Canadians living in Argentina for a Documentary about “Water as unique resource” to be showed at an International Fair in Spain later this year.

    We’re looking for Males and Women aged 18-65 years old, from USA/Canada living in Buenos Aires area. Don’t need to be an actor, since we’re looking for “real” people (its just sit front of the camera and give thoughts about the Water and its future as a natural resouce based on a brief script and your opinions).

    If you are interested, or known any who might be, please contact me at: luis.reggiardo@gmail.com

  10. Nice blog! It gives me “saudades” of Argentina… Here I am in the US always looking for good recipes from my native country. I have my own blog where I post some favorite recipes:
    Keep on going and good luck being by yourself in the capital.

    Me encanta tu blog. Yo también soy traductora (de inglés e italiano) y además, periodista. Entré por pura casualidad, buscando el sitio de los jabones de los hermanos Sabater, y me pasé un muy largo rato deleitándome con todas las cosas que publicás. Creo que de sólo mirar las exquisiteces engordé un kilo… Me encantaron hasta los animales que aparecen, ¿cómo se llama el gato tan bonito que mira a la cámara? Te felicito, pienso seguir ingresando en el blog, es un recreo maravilloso. Cariños, Lidia.

    So nice to meet you last night–wish we could have talked more. I love to bake too! My specialty is banana bread. I look forward to reading more of your baking stories.

    Love the picture of Phoebe!

    Your blog is beauuutiful and brings back many memories of the year I lived in Argentina. Don’t suppose you have a recipe for torta de ricotta? Every day at lunchtime a little abuelita from the neighborhood came to the store I was working in to sell torta de ricotta and pasta frola…I still have dreams about it 🙂
    Anyway, thanks for the lovely photos and the chipa recipe.
    Mucha suerte!
