Chocolate Avocado Smoothie Bowl

By Alicia Ghio

Smoothie bowls bring a delicious and healthy “pudding” option to the breakfast table. A creamy chocolaty pudding seems like a pretty great way to start the day.

I just saw a Rattata behind that pole!”…

Solidarity Generates Generosity – NOBODY Fights Alone.

By Manuella Bacelar

A smile, a hopeful look, a gesture full of gratitude. A happy heart before an act embodying one of the noblest sentiments, known by the name: solidarity. It was with this feeling that the Brazilian communities of Danbury and Bridgeport joined forces and organized a fundraising Festa Junina (hillbilly party), a typical Brazilian party, on…
