The first time I had a three layer banana pecan cake was at my Uncle Luke and his bride Vita’s wedding. I was a little girl under the age of ten and had never tasted anything so fine. Having banana cake at a wedding wasn’t a popular thing to do in those days. I distinctively remember instantly falling in love with the taste of banana cake and wondering WHEN I would have this enchanting taste in my life again?(more…)

This vegetarian muffuletta is all you’ll need to SCORE big with your friends and family this Super Bowl Sunday!! I used my own homemade sourdough bread, but as a time saver you can buy a loaf at your favorite bakery. I also made the most tasty olive salad to enclose my sandwich fillings. I say feel free to stack up your sandwich with whatever your heart desires. I listed the ingredients I used below.(more…)
We are currently experiencing COLD Los Angeles season, and by that I mean its a bit nippy outside. During this climate here on the west coast my mind naturally makes the transition to soup time. Everyday I’m whipping up a new bowl in my soup kitchen….some I share, some I don’t.(more…)

Are you the type that loves to put together a little gathering all in the name of TACOS? I am!!
Or as I like to call them Taco Party night. I can celebrate tacos any night of the week ending in Y, and I got the perfect one for you. Grilled Calabacita Tacos are the easiest to prepare. Grilled zucchini halves are stuffed with Cacique Queso Fresco, which is milky, fresh and salty, with a crumbly and creamy texture. Then, they’re placed in a corn tortilla, topped with a corn, tomato, onion and roasted jalapeno relish and drizzled in Cacique Cilantro Lime Sour Cream. Do I have your attention yet? Give these delicious tacos a try while the warm weather lasts… you won’t be disappointed!(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…)
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…)
