DID YOU KNOW? Chuchicha is the shortened form of the Swiss-German word Chuchichaschtli, meaning "little kitchen cupboard."
I've also created a new recipe page specifically for diabetics, which includes diabetic exchange information for each dish. The new collection of recipes was inspired by my former husband and dear friend Wilbert Alviso, who has Type II Diabetes. Keeping him healthy is quite a task because he loves breads and any dish containing chocolate. I'm hoping the influx of new recipes tailored just for diabetics will appeal to him as well.
