This is a husband and wife team: Rafael and Jasmin Ortega.  I, Jasmin am from the U.S.A (Charlotte, NC) and my husband is from Bogotá, Colombia.  We got married in August of 2010 and are currently happily baking, cooking and making a mess in our kitchen here in Bogotá.

Our love for food is one of the many things that bonds the two of us.  We are always having a good time in the kitchen and enjoy trying new things and modifying the recipes.

When we’re not cooking we love to watch movies and catch up on our favorite shows like: House, Glee, Modern Family and any cooking show that’s on.

So come join us in this fun-filled adventure that we call A Touch of RoJoRafael ortega, Jasmin ortega


Somos el matrimonio  Rafael y Jasmin Ortega. Nací en los Estados Unidos (Charlotte, Carolina del Norte) y mi esposo nació en Bogotá, Colombia. Nos casamos en Agosto de 2010 y actualmente estamos felizmente cocinando, horneando y haciendo regueros en nuestra cocina de Bogotá.

Nuestro amor por la comida es una de las muchas cosas que nos une. Siempre la pasamos bien en la cocina y disfrutamos de experimentar y hacer nuevas cosas con las recetas.

Cuando no estamos cocinando nos encanta ver películas y ponernos al día con los episodios de nuestras series favoritas: House, Glee, Modern Family y los canales de cocina.

Acompáñanos en este divertida aventura que llamamos A Touch of RoJo (Un Toque de RoJoRafael ortega, Jasmin ortega)

      Gracias mija. Espero que ustedes se suscriban y vuelvan para ver más recetas. Nos encanta cocinar y tu sabes que vivo por comer. Para que no me dé tan duro la nostalgia trato de cocinar cosas que me recuerden de allá. Y Rafa es un súper chef en la cocina. Ojalá un día podamos hacer algo para los dos. Saludos!

      Thanks Shari. It’s what I call a “baby” blog. We’re just getting our feet wet at the moment and learning so much about the blogging world. I appreciate you leaving a message and glad that we’ll be following each other. Happy cooking!

    Hi there RoJo!

    My name is Steve Walters and I recently started blogging at, which is currently being updated with recipes, but in the next few months will be my vehicle for covering the food and restaurant scene in Bangkok Thailand.

    I am now in the process of meeting as many food bloggers as I can and I found your site recently and was pretty impressed. I’ve added your site to my Foodie Blogs list here: and would also like to add you to my blogroll.

    If you could add my site to your blogroll and write back to let me know it has been added I will add you to mine as well and the exchange would be greatly appreciated!

    As you might imagine I am very excited to get moved to Bangkok and get started on covering the food scene there as I feel it is an area that isn’t well covered by English speaking bloggers. I plan on adding loads of great reviews, pictures and even video and will be holding contests as well. It should be fun, entertaining and informative for everyone that visits.

    Thank you so much in advance for adding me to your blogroll and I look forward to reading your posts (I’ve subscribed!) and maybe even featuring some of your own posts as I do plan on a weekly roundup of Thai themed recipes and posts from other food bloggers.

    Warm regards,

    P.S. If you are on Twitter I would love to have you as a follower and I follow back:

    Hi, thanks for the comment on the award. I just basically followed the same format as the person who gave it to me. The rules are listed in the posting, and you can just copy and paste those into yours and follow the steps/directions. As far as posting the image of the award on yours, I just right-clicked on the image and saved it to my computer and then posted in my sidebar under one of the gadgets for images and gave it a title. I work with blogger- so I don’t know if there is a big difference for you, but probably not. Let me know if you have any other questions. You can email me through my blog under “about me”. Good luck!
