How to Build a Resume That Stands Out Visually To Help Your Teen Land Their First Job

Creating a captivating resume that sparkles bright enough to catch an employer's attention is an art on its own terms.

With the ramp up pressure kids experience at school and the need to sign up to too many extracurricular activities, it’s no surprise how the number of teens employed have been declining over the past decades.
There are many benefits (and risks) of adolescent employment. The decision to allow your teen to have an after school job should be a well thought-out family decision based on how well they can manage responsibilities, time management and money.

Food Bloggers Dish On How to "Spin" Your Favorite Thanksgiving Dishes

Chefs in the City with Hector Santiago

If you have never been to a Chefs in the City event you don't know what you are missing. I was fortunate enough to attend the last event with Chef Virginia Willis and it was so much fun. It was a great learning experience for this home cook ;)

This week is my favorite "boricua" chef's turn to shine.  Chef Hector Santiago from Pura Vida, Super Pan, and Bravo TV's Top Chef will host a cooking demo on November 17th from 6-8pm at Bloomingdale's Lenox Square (Home Store) as he presents tapas selected by restaurant diners as favorites. Plus, guests will enjoy a spanish wine tasting, maragritas from Sinless Cocktails, shopping specials, fabulous door prizes and more!

I have been a fan of Hector for a long time and I am very excited to see what he will be cooking for this event. Whatever it is, I bet it will be full of "sazon" ;D
Hector Santiago's passion for cooking began while attending the University of Puerto Rico and continues to grow along with his…
