I’ve traveled to more than twenty countries for work and fun, and all the hours squeezed in the middle of the plane’s last row are worth it to try unique foods. Escargot in Nice, venison in Hungary, springbok in Johannesburg, octopus in Athens… all were deliciously worth the trip.
Bolivia’s stamp isn’t in my passport (yet), but I already know that I would love this recipe for huminta, a Bolivian corn cake that Leslie at From Playdates to Parties is sharing today for the Spectacular Summer Blog Hop.
This isn’t your grandma’s cornbread recipe. Well, unless your grandma is Bolivian. 😉
Boxed cornbread mix makes this recipe easy, but unexpected spices give it a unique kick.

Why did you start blogging?
After having my first child, and planning her first birthday party, I realized how much I missed working with my stepmother at her catering company. Being a part of so many celebratory moments was hard work, but was also a lot of fun.
So my husband and I agreed that I would do a one-year trial where I would plan and execute one party per month. I started a blog to keep track of that progress, and ended up falling in love with blogging instead! That was nearly 7 years ago now, and I’m thrilled to have found such a wonderful way to stay creative and to celebrate all of life’s moments with people around the world.
What is something you learned in the last week?
As gross as it sounds, anti-lice hair spray also helps keep ants away from doorways. (Definitely going to try this on picnic blankets too.)
