Hola, I’m Neyssa and I’m ready to break down the walls and let you in!
Hola and gracias for visiting. My name is Neyssa, I’m a wife to one awesome man named Chris and a mother to five amazing kids. I’m a Latina currently residing in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. We’re an eclectic bunch. Each person is the polar opposite of the other (except for my husband and me, shockingly we’re the same).
Ever have a burning desire to let others know that change is possible, or that a recipe can be elevated with a simple spice or herb? As a stay-at-home mom, this desired burned me to my core. I had to share what was on my mind and plate, so much that I created this site to connect with others.
There are four focuses here at Latina Misfit on a Mission:
The first is probably what brought you here.
Recipes. I love to cook. Cooking is a place where creativity knows no limits and freedom is yours. I mean, there was this one wing recipe that was a complete and total fail, so maybe
Recipes. I love to cook. Cooking is a place where creativity knows no limits and freedom is yours. I mean, there was this one wing recipe that was a complete and total fail, so maybe no to no limits.
But I believe cooking should be an expression of love and joy. Cooking should be a family event and something that brings you together. Food is something that is vital to life. But one of the biggest messages I want to send through my cooking is that it shouldn’t have to break the bank! Rice and beans have been a staple through my life and culture. I want to show others that, there’s no reason to turn your nose at rice and beans. Yes, Dave Ramsey made it famous for broke people going through the debt snowball, but let’s jazz it up!
Eventually, I’d love to create my own cookbook filled with Latin recipes.
The second is getting out of debt.
Have you ever gone through a season of life where you hit rock bottom? It seems like my rock bottom financially has never changed since birth. But this is something I’m working on to change the financially legacy of my family.
I want to inspire others to keep going. To let them know that debt does not have to be a life sentence. There can be victory if you work smarter, harder, and follow your goals.
Next is intentional parenting.
I was a teen mother. I don’t feel like the “parenting” switch clicked until I was about 22. Let’s just say, I’ve made mistakes and had my fair share of struggles. From single parenting, raising a special needs child, and now -having a large family. Parenting needs to be intentional in order to raise amazing kids destined for greatness.
Last, but not least, self-care!
Anxiety and depression have plagued young parents to no end. I believe we need to take care of ourselves before we can take care of others. Easier said than done!
I’m hoping to share tips and advice revolved around all things positive and awakening. Get your smudge stick out and Hershey Kisses, time to set goals and get going! Big things are coming.
That’s it, if I think of anything else, I will update you guys! I’m PR friendly, feel free to contact me here.
I want to get to know you all! If you have a question, or a post you’d like to see written, or a recipe you’d like to see made, fill out to form below. 🙂 Don’t forget to subscribe!
