Yesterday I went on this Mexican food cooking spree and pretty much out did myself, thank you very much. My inner Mexican came out and I almost started speaking spanish and singing mariachi music (oh paleeeze!).

I clipped this recipe from a Country Home magazine back in 2009 and unlike lots of recipes I clip out, I actually tried this one and fell in love! I feel like a list is warranted here, of what I love so much, so here it is:

Giant sopapillas are served hot and fresh on tables in restaurants all across New Mexico, drizzled with sweet honey that resides right …Read more »
So figs are in season right now, and a short season it is. I always seems to miss the boat on fig season, so the other day when I was in Trader Joes, I saw some luscious figs and had to get them. Here’s my newest pizza recipe using those figs and I have …Read more »
Not much is more satisfying than pasta. Pasta and meat. Better yet, pasta, meat and veggies! This recipe seriously, is so quick and easy, and it’s a real no-brainer. I have to say though, if you’re going to get caught using sauce from a jar, make it a good one. Trader Joe’s has a nice …Read more »
