September is National Family Meals Month, and I would be silly to miss this opportunity to join an industry-wide movement to raise awareness of the benefits of frequent family meals. The commitment is to bring families back to the table to share one more meal at home per week. Do you think you can do it? Northgate Gonzalez Market is making it easier to take part of #NationalFamilyMealsMonth. They offer an ever-expanded assortment of products that take the stress out of planning and preparing family meals: pre-prepped fresh ingredients, delicious readymade entrees and wholesome heat and eat dishes.

Margarita-Enchiloso-Paletas

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.

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.

Make this easy homemade mole and drizzle it on whatever you’d like.

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!

Soy Chorizo Potato Tacos

Soy Chorizo Potato Tacos

Soy Chorizo Potato Tacos are vegan based, but if you add cheese they become vegetarian bites. The choice is yours!

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.

Vegan brownie oreo cupcakes are perfect for a plant-based birthday party treat or any special ocassion.

One of my dearest girlfriend Monique is vegan. For her birthday (April 17th) this year she called and said to me “I don’t want you to buy me anything for my birthday, all I want is for you to make me a vegan dessert.” I said “Do you have something in particular in mind?” She said “Nope, just make me something for my birthday.” The first thing I thought was vegan brownie oreo cupcakes.

December is a big month for us here in the Lopez-Presley household. It’s my husband’s birthday month, Christmas tree trimming time, and gotta tamalada with my family.

Of course, it’s also Christmas. I run around like mad trying to get everything just right. (more…)
