April Salazar longs to make her Grandma Alice’s tortillas with her daughter. It is the same tortilla recipe her grandmother’s mother made in Baja California and later in Tucson, Arizona, after she fled the Mexican Revolution. There’s just one problem: she needs the stars to align… and the cooperation of her two-year-old daughter.
These photographs of young Magdalena Carmen Frieda, later known as Frida Kahlo, were taken by her Hungarian Jewish father Guillermo, over a period of 20 years. Baby Frida is two years old in this first shot.
Is this is the spiciest expectant parents announcement video ever?

Mealtimes with baby can be a messy experience.
When Kayra Rosario Tisdell took her son to a Mexican restaurant in Clearlake in Northern California, she thought a plain quesadilla would be the perfect non-messy menu choice. Not so fast, Mom! This kid sure loves him some beans!
How much does America love tacos, you ask? Taco imagery is everywhere — jewelry (necklace, above), toys, drinks, desserts, babies, kitties, doggies, purses, rear-view mirrors. And how could we make a listicle without the pink taco? [The pink taco final photograph may be NSFW depending on your work. We don’t think it is, but you never know, tu sabes?]
(PNS reporting from RANCHO POCHO ESTATES) In a shocking file uploaded to the Internets last week, a mom in suburban Southern California has been captured on video feeding her baby hot salsa in a baby bottle in order to pay for her husband’s “picante burger” habit.
In the video, a spicy burger pusher known only as “Jack” — his true identity hidden by a grotesque disguise — rings the family’s doorbell and pretends to be religious missionary so the neighbors don’t suspect. “Do you have three minutes to talk about spicy hamburgers?” he asks burger-junkie Juan Desperado, who opens the door.
“I have some something here I think you’ll like,” the pusher says.
Baby Margaret sure loves her some guacamole.
So cute it hurts — a little girl from Miami makes a birthday video for her dad. Thanks for the besitos!

(PNS reporting from LONDON) Normally perky Buckingham Palace Her Majesty’s Parking Valet Reymundo Hernandez Terraza was uncharacteristically quiet today after the birth of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s new baby boy, although some friends of the royal servant noticed he sported a “secret smile.”
Some Palace observers have remarked on the newborn’s apparent slight suntan, attributing the child’s skin tone to Britain’s recent heat wave, when temperatures soared into the high 60s.
Just before Kim Kardashian was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Hospital in West Hollywood to deliver a daughter (with babydaddy Kanye West), she was at Lamaze classes with unwed teenage mom-to-be Rosalinda Guzman. (NSFW language.)
