There always comes a moment when you get these cravings for certain types of food. Now I'm not sure why I was craving Mexican-inspired stuffed peppers, but I was. I also was lucky enough to be able to cook it for a friend as I had the day off to come up with some inspiration. In reality I was just bored, sitting in a laundromat, and had plenty of time to debate what to make for dinner. This is the inspiration that struck me!...more
Cinco de Mayo is next Tuesday, and you know what that means: It's time to fiesta! Aside from Southern food, Mexican food is my favorite cuisine, so naturally Cinco de Mayo is one of my favorite holidays. I'm not typically one to post a roundup for every holiday and occasion. However, I have so many Mexican-inspired recipes here that I just love so much, and I want to help you plan the ultimate menu for the holiday. So whether you are throwing a big blowout or just enjoying some Mexican food at home, I've got you covered.
Cilantro is absolutely my most favorite herb & I use it as much as possible. When I was in college, one of my best friends introduced me to Salsa’s Mexican Caribbean Restaurant in Asheville, North Carolina & my love affair with cilantro began . If you’re ever in Asheville, do yourself a favor & stop in for a meal at Salsa’s (you will be so very happy you did)....more
What better way to start (or finish) a night than with some tequila and tacos?Fonda Lola offers that, and much more in their relatively new establishment on the West Queen West strip. Nestled between Liberty Village and Little Portugal, Fonda Lola stands out thanks to their “Mexican-with-a-Twist” dishes – made from locally sourced ingredients – and creative drinks that will leave you asking for more, por favór!...more
I feel the same about Cinco de Mayo as I do about St Patrick’s Day. Both have become perverted by the alcohol industry in America (particularly the beer industry). What started as a celebration of ethnic pride has in many cases just turned into an excuse to go out and drink heavily. Ugh! So, am I selling out by sharing some Mexican recipes? Probably, but there is a slight irony to today’s recipe....more
Hello Everyone!!Well, I have to say that I have not written in a couple of days because I have been in am back from Carefree, Arizona, the Boulders! Thank you to wonderful friends for offering their home to us! I could not even describe the magnificence that becomes this place. The landscape is dotted with all different types of cacti as we are literally in the dessert....more
Mexican food is one of my favorites, so it's no wonder I quickly jumped at the chance to make this when I was having an "off" day. I'm also a huge cornbread lover, so having it as the base of this dish made it that much better. If you love tamales, this casserole is definitely for you. It's the layered form of one and probably ten times easier to make. Enjoy!
