Thanks to the efforts of local members of our community who have freely given their time, this baseball program initiative which began several years ago has really taken off, now with nearly two hundred local youth participating in it from several different neighboring communities. Thanks to their hard work and time, our youth can now enjoy a fully operational baseball program with proper equipment, in order to play competitively in games against other teams from Tepic to Puerto Vallarta. I talk with one of the organizers/volunteers Matt Stooke about the program, how it first started, and what it is like now.

Music pretty much sets the tone for every event and is one of the top priorities for creating an unforgettable wedding day. The right wedding band can showcase your personality and set the right mood during the celebration, from beginning until end. Thus, why not hire the best of the best? Esaú Music in Sayulita is lead by multi-talented Esaú, who specializes in creating unique moments as a solo artist, or together with his band, Tatewari, for fiery gypsy music. Whether you'd prefer some Mexican traditional pieces, authentic flamenco guitar, or romantic classics, Esaú is a pleasure to work with. It's easy to see why his experience, passion and natural charm made him a Bahia de Banderas wedding favorite.

As many of you have noticed, professional workers and engineers have begun the construction and placement of the new emissor at the river bed which connects to the main beach. This is part of an ongoing project from Sayulita’s new Sewage Treatment Plant. I talked with key members from the board of Grupo Pro Sayulita, who began this project several years ago and remain the liasons with the government officials now in charge of the plant and project. All of the projects have been designed to upgrade previous wastewater management systems. Phase 1 began more than two years ago, and phase 3, being done now, will be completed in the next few weeks.

Although I constantly see recipes for Chocolate Molten Lava Cakes, I had never made them before. But with my husband’s 70th birthday coming up in just two days, I decided to give them a try! They came out perfectly and taste so yummy that I knew this was a keeper, and a recipe I just had to share with you. All the ingredients are available here in Sayulita, so you have no excuse not to make them! You will be so happy that you did. The batter can be made up to two days in advance, so invite some friends over for an afternoon tea and dessert. This recipe is so easy to make and such a delicious treat!

This past week I had a catering order in Sayulita for a special birthday cake. The husband wanted a vanilla cake with a buttercream frosting and said that if I could make it for him, he would be a hero in his wife’s eyes, as it was her birthday. I had never made either a vanilla cake, nor buttercream frosting before, but decided to give it a go! After lots of research the result was a most delicious cake. I was very proud of how yummy and beautiful this cake turned out, and I knew that I just had to share it with you here today. A friendly warning: the French buttercream icing I made uses a lot of butter...after-all, the icing is called BUTTERcream for a reason. I realize that this recipe may be a bit complicated for many of you, but I can guarantee that if you do make it, you will thank me!

Have you ever tried baking when the humidity is very high? Many recipes come out just fine, but many other recipes just won’t work! Today I had one of those “just won’t work” attempts. I really wanted to make Cheese Gougeres (French cheese puffs), but the humidity of 95% got the best of me, or shall I say, got the worst of me! The cheese puffs simply would NOT puff up. Thus, I was scrolling through some of the recipes I had saved that I knew would work…humidity or not. Lime Mousse is such a wonderful and refreshingly light dessert, I knew I had to make it! I chose lime rather than lemon, because limes are a basic staple in every Sayulita tienda. The result was so yummy, I knew that I just had to share the recipe with you. I am hoping that you love it as much as I do; this could be the perfect treat to enjoy with your loved ones on this Valentine’s Day!

A HUGE thank you goes out to each and every one of you who helped to make the final steps of the Lifeguard Tower Project a success! This truly was a village project. Some of you maybe helped financially by donating to the cause, some of you did physical work on the towers themselves, and others were supporters on an emotional level (particularly for me)! This was a labor of love for our community and by our community, and now we can say that our Sayulita beaches are safer knowing that we have these structures in place.
