I just stood there by the wooden door and watched as my aunts would laugh and talk to each other while the kneaded the corn flour. It was a beautiful sight to see because of the sunlight that was coming in from the window was hitting their faces and making it look like they were glowing. I started to look around the medium size room and saw the big dining table in the middle of the kitchen leaving little space to walk around properly.

Practices included herbal remedies, procedures such as “bleeding, blistering, and purging (Batnitzky, Hayes, & Vinall, (2014).

The First Marine Hospital fund ensured military members and individuals with federal eligibility were provided medical treatment and preventive care. Funds in maintaining treatment facilities was acquired though payroll deductions. This treatment was provided at various hospitals and facilities.

They dated for about two years before my parents decided to come to the United States.

By the time my grandmother turned 24 years old, lack of funding forced her to illegally abort eight children due to Romania’s strict communist regime. Her ninth baby, however, she kept. Even though my grandmother desperately desired a boy, my mother stood as the only child in the family. In on April 12th, 1998 when I took my first breath, my grandmother’s wish came true. From that moment onwards, she raised me as her own baby
Who Taught Me to Cook and Inspired my Cooking? I remember this: I was 5 years old, a Spanish speaking Jewish girl by ethnicity and Catholic by religion living with her family in a house in the state of San Salvador in El Salvador. We were a hard working family by most standards. Both of my parents own a Jewelry store in down town San Salvador, earning money every day, which made us high-middle class by Salvadorians standards. I also have a brother. We lived in a time during war in the country and a combination of irregular pay, hope, fear and military government. In this times, Mama Nila told me to have a positive attitude while teaching me how to cook.

On February 27, 2011 I was woken up by a bad dream around eight thirty on a chilly Sunday morning. My father was home sheltered away from the sleet and rain and I have no idea where my mother was, she did not work that day, but possibly she was at the store. Everything seemed more dim today, but at least it was my grandma’s and my first sleepover together.This event shaped me into the person I am today because I finally realized that life is not fair and people die, but it does not mean that they are gone. This is about the day my world flipped upside down. The day grandma would really disappear.
