Spanish Pear Bread
We love fruit bread in Spain. And we have this kind of instinct... I would call it the yogur instinct... Every time we see a lemon yogur, it's like we need to cook something with it. I remember I was taught first in school, they gave us the recipe when I was only 8, and of course I always remember my mom baking it. It's a great family recipe, kids love to do it!
Potatoes with chorizo recipe
Potatoes with chorizo recipe is a traditional dish from La Rioja, same northern region in Spain where all those Tempranillo wines you love come from. My mother in law is the one here who misses the most our country, so today, despite of the high temperatures in Miami, she was in the mood for a warm, spoon meal. Nostalgia meal, I would say. Anyway, we didn't eat potatoes with chorizo for a long time so we really enjoyed them. By the way, we call them patatas a la riojana.

Great opening was Sept. 27th and it's intended to be in Miami until January 2016. So you have enough time to come over. No excuses. Another good reason to visit us.
Carmen and Lola also wants to welcome refugees
Carmen and Lola has a big Spanish, Mediterranean, European heart that is beating stronger these days because of the humanitarian emergency that is growing every day across Europe and Mediterranean.

That's why we've decided to donate the 5% of our Internet sales this month to UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency.
