Music to Listen to this Week

This week I've been having Camilo's new album called 'Mis Manos' on repeat!
I was on the edge of my seat after watching his performance on Jimmy Fallon a few days ago. 
If you're not familiar, Camilo Echeverry is a Colombian singer, songwriter and record producer. He is signed with Sony Latin records and has been my favorite spanish artist for as long as I can remember. 

Most recently he's been pretty popular here in America.. and to that I say: About time!! 
Yes his music is great but if you get a chance, listen to his songs acoustic. Your heart will 1000x melt.  

Here's his new album ( rated by favorites )

1. KESI
2. Mareado 
6.  Rolex

Here are a few old favorite songs from Camilo.

Best Dal Recipe


I'm so excited to finally share my dal recipe with you guys. Since visiting Bangladesh I've learned a few new tricks on making this traditional dish. It's my family's favorite and now you can learn how to make it too. If you decide to make it please be sure to tag me on social or leave a comment letting me know how you like it @nytrendymoms #CookingWithJohnnybell

Every New Yorker is currently celebrating warmer weather and by warmer I mean mid-50's. Can you blame us? It's been the longest Winter in history! At least it feels like it, specially for our kids. Which is why I've been taking full advantage of each warm day we get.

Last week I took my family to the American Museum of Natural History (one of my daughters favorite Museums in the city). We have been supporting the Museum for over 12 years and I wanted James to reach a good age to visit as well. He's in love with dinosaurs! James favorite dinosaur is the Tyrannosaurus better known as T-Rex. Coincidently The American Museum of Natural History has a new T-Rex on display until March 14th. Tickets are still available for today and tomorrow only. Unfortunately, tickets are sold out for this weekend. If you have a dinosaur lover I highly recommend taking them to see this.

This is one of the best Covid-friendly New York City activities for the entire family.

Todos los neoyorquinos celebran actualmente un clima más cálido y por más cálido me refiero a mediados de los 50. ¿Puedes culparnos? ¡Ha sido el invierno más largo de la historia! Al menos se siente así, especialmente para nuestros hijos. Por eso he aprovechado al máximo cada día cálido que tenemos.

La semana pasada llevé a mi familia al American Museum of Natural History (uno de los museos favoritos de mis hijas en la ciudad). Hemos estado apoyando al Museo durante más de 12 años y queríamos que James llegara a una buena edad para visitarlo también. Está enamorado de los dinosaurios. El dinosaurio favorito de James es el Tyrannosaurus, más conocido como T-Rex. Coincidentemente, el Museo Americano de Historia Natural tiene un nuevo T-Rex en exhibición hasta el 14 de Marzo. Los boletos todavía están disponibles para hoy y mañana solamente. Desafortunadamente, las entradas están agotadas para este fin de semana. Si tienes un amante de los dinosaurios, te recomiendo que lo lleves a ver esto.

Esta es una de las mejores actividades de la ciudad de Nueva York amigables con Covid para toda la familia.

DSC00145

Van Leeuwen Ice Cream is one of my favorite ice-cream brands (no surprise there). If you follow me on social media you know that my family frequents their Williamsburg store ( 204 Wythe Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11249 ) almost every other week. 

That being the case, I am so excited to share that Van Leeuwen Ice Cream just launched 6 brand new flavors in brand new forms. Each box comes with 4 individually wrapped ice cream bars.
