Acuña in the Summer

It seems every time I go home I see Mexico in a different light. Last time it was Christmas and everything seemed so beautiful under the twinkling lights, our traditions so rich, and our heritage great. This time, under the sweltering heat of summer things seemed a bit more bleak. Nevertheless, the company and the food were as good as always....more

Break out the Margaritas's!

Viva! Cinco de Mayo! Do you know why we celebrate Cinco de Mayo in the US? Some people seem to think that Cinco de Mayo, May 5th is a celebration of Mexico’s Independence from Spain.  Not true, Mexico declared Independence from Spain on September 15th 1810. Now that we have cleared that up, on May 5th, 1862 in Pueblo Mexico the Mexican army of 4,000 soldiers defeated the French Army of 8,000. ...more

Less Guilt on Cinco de Mayo: Crispy, Oven-Baked Chimichangas

Saturday is Cinco de Mayo, so I figured (like every other food blogger on the planet this week) that I’d throw a Mexican inspired meal your way.  I love Mexican food and, thankfully, my family does as well, so we are frequent patrons at the Mexican restaurants around town.  Every time we try a new Mexican place, my husband orders a chimichanga.  He feels that if they can make a chimi that he enjoys, it’s worth stopping in to visit them again.  I love a good chimi myself, but my waistline does not.  They are delicious for a reason…chicken or beef, stuffed with cheese...more

Mexican Is Always a Good Choice

Today's question is: "Would you rather make your own choices or have someone make them for you?"      Of course it depends on what I am making a choice about.  Ross and I have a dance that we do when it is time to decide where we are going to go when we decide to out for a meal.     The conversation goes something like this:R: "Would you like to out for linner?  (lunch/dinner, which sounds hipper than the early bird special).Me:  "Yea I guess so."  (dreading the next question which is:)...more

Max-I-Can Food

Ouch. Much. Tummyrumbly. 3 AM. Perhaps the results of Max-I-Can food (?) Actually it was Max-I-Can Tex Mexican food (!) Well, I was compensating for a no lunch munch situation. Perhaps its listening to too much irrational international news while I snooze (?) On a positive note, congratulations to all the happy couples who just got married in a massive ceremony in Peru for only $10. Hope your marriages are as wonderful as ours, as we are just a few days away from 29 years (!) ...more

Mexican Christmas Traditions

We´re finally here. Eight hours traveling with a squirmy toddler would test anyone’s patience, but being with my family again makes it so worth it. One of the greatest things about Christmas is tradition, making new ones and reliving old ones. Traditions are a simple way of transmitting our values and our culture, making us part of history, thus becoming the glue between the past and the present. ...more
