Huevos Rancheros

Huevos Rancheros by Nicole Maxwell
Videography and Production by Colin Castillo

Nicole Maxwell shows us how she spends her spare mornings spoiling herself with this delicious Southern treat. She first discovered huevos rancheros after she moved here from California for school and has fallen in love. She is currently an alumni and working in the field of Media Production. This spicy breakfast helps her get ready for her day.


  • 2-3 eggs
  • 2 oz. diced red bell pepper
  • 1 oz. Sriracha sauce
  • 3 oz. Your Favorite Salsa
  • 1 oz. Extra Virgin Olive Oil


In a pan over medium heat combine the olive oil and the diced bell pepper.  Sautee the bell peppers until the peppers are soft and a little charred. Crack eggs in a bowl and scramble with a fork. Pour the eggs in the pan working in the bell peppers throughout.  Plate the eggs and pour the salsa over the eggs followed by the Sriracha sauce. If you believe this dish might be too spicy feel free to substitute a lighter bell pepper and exclude the Sriracha sauce.

Tri-athlete Running Her Mouth

I was able to sit down with an alumna from St. Mary’s University this weekend who does triathlons. Carly Bourke participates in Triathlon events around San Antonio and also trains with friends. I caught up with her after one training session and we talked a bit about the joys from doing this type of event. Thank you for the time Carly, best of luck in your endeavors 🙂

It might surprise you to know that I meditate. I cannot call it prayer because I am not actually talking to God. While I do pray, my meditation becomes a form for me to empty everything in my mind and come to a better understanding of myself in my surroundings. I meditated before writing this and I have come to the following.

This semester scares me. I have a lot on my plate and find a lack in confidence with my ability to accomplish these things. Between work, school, and a very strong role in my family life, I do not know how to prioritize so many important things. My hope is that I will not have to detract time from one thing to make up for another. I am going to do my best to manage the few moments I have and stay one step ahead of the workload.

My other challenge becomes managing myself. I need to control my more impulsive nature to indulge in a good time. I hope to be able to put that away and focus more completely on things that will actually matter.

This course becomes particularly exciting for me because it does involve something I would like to try a career in. Capturing video and audio, and then editing it to make a short film or sequence interests me.

I look forward to everything I am going to learn in this class this semester. EA 4360 Media Production II Rolling….. ACTION!


Life in 200 Words

Colin Castillo was born on January 13th, 1989. It was a Friday when he was born and that old standing superstition seemed a fitting day to bring this man into the world. Growing up in San Antonio Texas he developed bright and early. He had a natural affinity for school and a quiet yet charming simplicity with strangers. Showing early on a comfortable aura with theater and music he developed these all throughout high school.

Upon graduating high school he had learned to play harmonica, piano, guitar, and had picked up an interest in bagpipes. He had participated in seven plays, snagging the lead role for two of them. His passion for these extracurricular activities formed the foundation for where we now find this man.

It is January 18th, 2012 and we now find Colin in his Junior year of college at St. Mary’s University. He decided on a degree in English Communications/Arts to further expand his curiosity on things he found comfort in during high school. When asked recently what he planned to do with his life his words were simple, “Live and love hard. Everything else will come to you.” He also noted an interest in camera operations and writing on a script team for a network. Graduating in 2014 the world’s opportunities await for this remarkable young man.
