It’s hot here. It’s early May and it’s already hot here.  I think I can keep the whining somewhat in check by eating another bowl of Cucumber & Avocado Salad. This is ridiculously easy and SO good. You get the cool, crisp, crunchiness of the cucumber and the creaminess of the avocado. It’s a match […]

Mexican Corn Salad – Prepare to swoon! Do you remember last summer when we made Elote or Mexican Grilled Corn? Well, if you skipped it and didn’t try it (like EVERY MEMBER OF MY OWN FAMILY) you have seriously been missing out on the hot & cheesy corn action. I’ll be the first to admit it’s […]

I have a confession to make…I am a lazy Crockpotter. I have a big cookbook full of recipes for the crockpot or slow cooker that I’ve never tried. Why? Almost all of the recipes require a fair amount of prepping the food before it goes into the crockpot. I totally agree that most meat tastes […]

Mmmmmmm! Picadillo…Cuban Comfort Food. You might not know that I’m a big fan of Cuban food. It helps that I now live in Florida and get to visit and work in Miami somewhat frequently. However, one of the best and most memorable Cuban meals I’ve ever had was in the not so tropical location of […]

Mexican Stuffed Peppers  – One of our favorite weeknight dinners. Colorful and sweet bell peppers hold a variety of savory and spicy ingredients which you can customize to your own tastes, preferences, and what you have on hand. I was never a big fan of traditional stuffed peppers because cooked green peppers tend to have […]

Here’s one for the carnivores! Grilled Skirt Steak with Chimichurri Sauce. This recipe happened because I was a mean, mean wife and wouldn’t let Jim buy a bottle of Chimichurri Sauce at the store last week. “Blech!” I announced. “Why would you want to buy that?” “It’s fun. I like it…” the poor husband replied. […]

Have you had Mexican Grilled Corn or Elote yet? In my personal experience (we’ve had it twice this week), you don’t have to have it more than once to become completely and hopelessly addicted. It’s corn on the cob, grilled in the husks, and slathered, yes SLATHERED in creamy, cheesy goodness. I know everyone in […]

Shrimp Mexicana or Camarones a la Mexicana is the recipe that I made to go with the Plantains I featured last week. I like to make theme dinners every now and then and this recipe seemed easy and adaptable. It’s adaptable in that you can easily expand it for any number of servings, adapt the side dishes […]

I’ve had several people ask me about Plantains lately so I thought they deserved their own post. Plantains or Platanos (yes, that first “a” will get the proper accent when I get home to my better computer) are obviously relatives of the banana but must be cooked to be eaten.  Firmer and less sweet than […]
