Can't believe how many months it's been! Both of us starting new job last year, kept us pretty busy and just as we started feeling more settled in, family life got eventful and posting about it wasn't as important as being in the moment. Rather than go on about the details, we'll share some of the key moments with photos:
|Trick or Treating in the historic section of Chelsea is never disapointting.|
Halloween fun included trick or treating with some of the family kiddos followed by a get together with some of our friends who know you're never too old to dress in costume.
We spent Thanksgiving week in Arkansas taking care of Ethan's niece and two nephews while Erica was in NYC having surgery and recovering. Again, despite circumstances, we couldn't have been happier to have time with these great kids and to help out their warrior mom.
In December I got to take a break to celebrate the birthday of my dear friend Candelario in Cancun, Mexico. I've been friends with Cande for 18 years and Aimee for 19. They've been there for be through thick and thin and I'm lucky to have them in my life.
We topped off the year with a visit from my sister, brother in law and niece who left the comforts of warm Hawaiian weather to brave 10 days of New York winter weather. It's been a year since I saw them last so we tried to pack in as much family time as we could. Hoping that 2015 brings along a trip to visit them!
This week I attended a Macy's event for Martha Stewart's new book One Pot. I was able to meet Martha briefly and get my copy of it signed! Want to win a copy of your own? Macy's was generous enough to give me an extra copy for one lucky Que Pasa NYC reader. Read on to learn how to enter.
At the event I was able to sample the Arroz con Pollo, which was hearty, delicate and delicious. One of the other chicken recipes I'm looking forward to tasting is the Lamb and Apricot Stew. And before I forget, One Pot also includes dessert recipes. The Giant Almond Crumble Cookie and Molten Chocolate Cupcakes are calling to me.
So here's how you enter to win your very own copy of One Pot. Leave a comment below telling me which one pot you use most often or want to use more. The deadline for entering is 11:59 pm PST pm on Sunday, October 12, 2014. You can extra entries by tweeting about the contest (up to 1x per day) or following us on social media.

Culinary goddess Martha Stewart has a new cookbook, One Pot, wherein she shares recipes and tips for making all-in-one meals cooked in one pot. I'm really excited to get my hands on the book because while I love home cooked meals, after a 9 hour work day I only have so much energy to expend. Thinking about a main dish and sides can often feel daunting, so keeping it to one pot can make cooking a weekday meal much more manageable.
The One Pot book release is on September 23rd, and if you're a big Martha Stewart fan living/working in New York City you should head to Macy's on that day! While One Pot books cannot be purchased at Macy’s, you can receive one with a $75 Macy’s Home purchase made between September 15th and 23rd. You'll also receive a $10 gift card.* More importantly, Martha will be in-store on 9/23 at 6 pm for a book signing and you'll have the chance to meet her and sample some of the recipes from the book.
So if you had a Macy's home purchase on your to-do list, now's the time to pull the trigger and get the Martha Stewart One Pot bonus! Hope to see you there!
