Crispy Flor de Calabaza Quesadillas: A couple of years ago I spent my summer in Italy. Where I enjoyed a lightly crisp battered squash blossoms swimming in simple tomato sauce stuffed with ricotta cheese. I had never had flor de calabaza (squash blossom) Italian style but I was certainly in love one bite in.(more…)
I’m kinda obsessed with my mole fries right now, not kinda… totally obsessed. I can’t help it. It’s my most recent love letter to my man. He loves my homemade mole, but is a fry guy and the combination makes him swoon. My obsession comes from the assembly of the plate and putting it together, plus I just love mole fries.(more…)
Did you know it’s #paletaweek ? Yup. Fun right!?! I decided to join in on the lively celebration and shake things up a bit with a 21 and over version for the adults.
I’m calling my creations Margarita Enchiloso Paletas! I made a chile lime tequila ice pop to enjoy when you want to get boozy on a stick. If it’s been an extra hard day, make it a double with a shot of tequila on the side. I dipped the tip of my spiked paletas in a mixture of salt sugar tajin and crushed chile peppers! Perfect for a summer night cap or day drinking.(more…)
Vegetarian Taco Board: A delicious grilled veggie board accompanied by corn tortillas, salsa and queso fresco. Make your taco dreams come true!
Are you SUMMER ready? I love the warm weather and more than loving the warm weather, I love the grilling season that comes with it. I enjoy the whole process of grilling. Choosing the freshest produce; bringing my vegetables home; and making a simple marinade of olive oil, lime juice, MAGGI® Vegetable Bouillon, pepper, and garlic. I feel like the bouillon gives my marinade all the flavor it needs for an extra special grilling day.(more…)
I recently realized I didn’t have a traditional mole from scratch on my blog, and decided it was time to make an easy homemade mole to post here. Does the word ‘easy’ really accompany the word ‘mole’ ever? It is now, I just joined the two. I should actually say it’s kinda easy homemade mole. Laugh if you will, but you won’t be laughing at the final result… you’ll be saying HOLY MOLE!(more…)
I think about soy chorizo potato tacos and my mouth waters. They are a total treat in my house and a serious indulgence. It’s like a holiday meal on a Tuesday night, except no real reason to celebrate except for TACOS! My husband requests them casually all the time hoping I’ll say yes and just start frying the shells in preparation.(more…)

I wake up with breakfast on my mind, and today I thought it would be extra cute to make Berry Poppy Seed Pancakes. Imagining the colors of the pancakes would be so aesthetically pleasing against my new Concentrix 2-Piece Open Nonstick Frypan Set from Tuxton Home. That’s a crazy way to plan a meal but I’m absolutely giddy over the blush pink frypan set.(more…)
