Bienvenidos to Las Recetas de Laura! On my website, you will learn how to cook authentic Mexican food from a real Mexican mom. You can also find some great tips for traveling with kids, adventures around Chicago, and a lot of self-love, realization, and craziness from a mother who works full time in radio and is also known as one of the most recognized Hispanic, Latinas, influencers and bloggers in the Midwest.
I am an immigrant, and so does my husband. We are raising bilingual and multicultural kids in Chicago. For me, it is very important that my kids can learn the language that their grandparents speak and teach them to love their parent’s country and traditions as much as our now beloved homeland, The United States of America. We feel very fortunate to live in the country of dreams and opportunities and be able to create roots in this land. I also feel extremely honored to share some of my Mexican heritage through my recipes.
My passion for cooking comes from the weekends staying over at my Abuelita’s house. Conchis as well called her. She was an amazing cook. My favorite recipe at my grandma’s home was Chiles Rellenos and Sopa de Fideos. I love the smell of a warm soup and love to spoil my kids and husband with tasty meals cooked from scratch made with natural ingredients and a lot of amor.
*My grandma Conchis was next to my grandpa Mauro in their youth.
I love to eat. Food makes me happy as well as writing and cats. I am a mother to Jorge (5) and Oscar (2) and a wife to Jorge Salazar. My husband is a long time hispanic radio personality in Chicago. We both work in media and run together Las Recetas de Laura and Mexican Food by Laura.
I have a bachelor’s in Mass Communication and later on, I was awarded with the Peace Ambassador Scholarship from the Rotary Foundation and was sent to study a Graduate Program in Journalism at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand. I also have graduate studies in gender equality and The Right to Information by the foundation Konrad Adenauer. I have traveled around four continents and love to learn from different cultures and religions.
For 3 years I wrote a syndicated column named Ruleta Urbana that later on became a book. At the moment I am an anchor news host for Radio Claret América in Chicago and create content for a community of nearly 3 million followers for Las Recetas de Laura social media and blog.
Thank you so much for stopping by and read these lines. I hope you enjoy this blog as it is made with pasión y amor…
