Have you seen the latest Amazon commercials? Everybody is talking about Alexa!
The Echo Dot is a hands-free, voice-controlled device with a small built-in speaker, which can also be connected to other speakers or headphones via Bluetooth or through an audio cable. With Alexa’s help (Amazon’s voice service) this little gadget is able to play your favorite music, audiobooks, provide information, news, sports scores, weather and more.
Echo Dot can hear you from across the room, even while music is playing. When you want to use Echo Dot, just say the wake word “Alexa” and Dot responds instantly. If you have more than one Echo or Echo Dot, Alexa responds intelligently from the Echo closest to you.
If the gift is for a food blogger, someone who likes Latin food or who is always in the kitchen, La Cocina Cubana de Vero is a great book for her.
This book, by Veronica Cervera, has 100 delicious dishes. Among them are Stuffed Potatoes, Lentil Salad, Plantain Soup, Fried Snapper, Ropa Vieja, Mamey Shake, and Guayaba Turnovers. It is, from any point of view, an indispensable book for lovers of cuisine in general and Cuban food in particular.
