Growing up in a very traditional Catholic Hispanic family, lent was always a thoughtful time of reflection, contemplation, prayer and fasting.
Preparation for Easter Sunday was a serious undertaking and while it always began with a solemn note; it was a great time for learning in the kitchen followed by a fantastic feast and celebration with family. The traditional pilgrimage on Good Friday to the Santuario de Chimayo always began in silence.

Lentil soup is my favorite; it reminds me of my Grandma. Anytime I am missing my Grandma, I put on my apron and make a pot of lentil soup. It was one of her favorite dishes and one she and I often made together.
