I read somewhere that summer is officially over on the blogosphere. Someone shoot me with a water gun and say it isn’t so. Things have been so hectic over here I didn’t take full advantage of the long summer days, the bonfires, and the s’mores.   And while some people would celebrate getting a job […]

Spicy Chipotle Yogurt Sauce

This smokey chipotle yogurt sauce is one my family can't live without. You can set this out with Mexican food, serve it with fries, on top of hot dogs, or as a spicy pizza base! This is a great way to spice up your next meal!

Secret sharing time everyone: I haven’t shared a lot of my family recipes with you yet. Gulp. I’m one of those people who gets bored quickly, so I suppose I enjoy getting in the kitchen and trying new recipes! But home isn’t just where the heart is. It’s also where the kitchen is! And being […]

Passion Fruit Hot Sauce

Passion Fruit Hot Sauce

I love spicy food – apparently I used to eat salsa by the spoonful as a baby. I always preferred my mom’s homemade, fresh salsa – loaded with jalapenos- to her cooked down salsa (which has grown on me in recent years) which was always a bit more toned down. We ate jalapeno poppers during […]

Spiked Mexican Quinoa Salad

Spiked Mexican Quinoa Salad

Aargh… If I were a dragon, steam would be coming out of my nose. If I were an ogre I´d be snapping bones in half. If I were a puffer fish I´d be round as a watermelon. But since I´m none of those things I´ll just rant a little on my blog. The dog days […]

Sweet Potato Spinach Quesadillas

Sweet Potato and Spinach Quesadilla

There are two things you should know about me before we officially get started with this post: One: I am not a patient person. This is the reason I’m horrible at making omelets and stir-fries. It’s the reason I almost always undercook the chicken and then dry it out – not when I’m cooking for […]

Baked Corn Tortilla Chips

Baked Corn Tortilla Chips

This gal is doomed. If kindergarten isn’t out to avoid the spread of a virus, we’re recruiting on Saturdays, or we have three day weekends where I fall ill. I promised you baked tortilla chips to go with my Smokin’ Hot Salsa Recipe…two weeks ago. I meant to post these on a Friday, because who […]

Smoking Hot Salsa

Summer means salsa in my heart, even though I actually didn’t like cooked salsa all throughout my childhood. My parents have a vegetable garden, and usually end up with gobs of tomatoes, and my mother makes canned salsa. Even today, there is always a jar that makes its way into a brother or sister’s car […]

Traditional Mexican Horchata Recipe

Traditional Horchata Recipe

You have the hubby to thank for this traditional recipe. He didn’t invent it. He didn’t even give you a fresh twist on the classic. But he did stop me from going a little coco-NUTS on this recipe and adding… yeah, okay, I punned this sentence up about thirty seconds too early, you probably know […]

Sweet Persimmapple Empanadas

I recently posted a recipe about how much I love tortillas. I happened to mention that they could be used with infinite fillings. And I meant it. I may have also mentioned at this point that I don’t have an oven. We still don’t know if this will have been a long term move or […]

Fresh Mango Salsa

In my last post, I kind of went off on a tangent over how good homemade tortillas are. And sure, you can make a meal out of nothing more than some hamburger meat and a tortilla, but having something fresh really hits the spot. Normally I am a huge fan of avocados, but in China, […]
