Tacos de Camarónes

Last night we had fish tacos, because my shrimp did not defrost quickly enough… or rather, I forgot to take them out of the freezer… Shuddup, like you’ve never forgotten to defrost something? In a pinch, you can defrost shrimp under cold running water, but I don’t like to, so it had to wait 24 hours. So guess what I have for you, today… Indeed, let the salivation begin! Anyway, the prep...

Tacos de Pescados

These aren’t the battered and deep fried fish tacos like you’ve had at Rubio’s, Alberto’s, Albertaco’s, Tacoberto’s or Eriberto’s. Don’t get me wrong. I love the classic battered fried fish tacos that they serve at those places. I just can’t have them anymore because the wheat flour in the batter does evil things to me. So I set out on a mission to perfect the fish...

Skinny Dipping

Today, I want to share with you my recipes for fresh salsa (pico de gallo) and guacamole. Yes, I know that salsa and guacamole and hardly rare recipes, but they are such wonderfully fresh and healthy alternatives to dips loaded with saturated fats. I do a few things differently with my versions of these recipes, and when my Hispanic friends and family members crowd into the kitchen to see how this silly white girl makes such...

Oktoberfest Inspired

This dish doesn’t have a name. It’s something I made up when we had potatoes, sausage and beer in the house, and I was too lazy to run to the store. It turns out a little different each time I make it, depending on what I do or dont have on hand, or based on who I’ll be serving it to. But the basics remain the same each time. It can even be made gluten-free with the use of sorghum beer, which means I get to...

The Big Squeeze

When Jason and I were expecting our first baby together, he decided that margaritas were pretty darn tasty. He thought it was great that any time we went out for a meal, he had a designated driver and could indulge in a few drinks if he liked. I was annoyed that I couldn’t have any, but even more annoyed at the price of a $15 top-shelf cocktail! We didn’t dine out frequently, which left us learning how to make...

Food as Art

It’s no secret that we like to play with our food. I used to love making little gumpaste and fondant creatures for cakes. Sometimes it’s fun getting your hands a little “dirty” with food. As the mom of all boys, I *know* getting dirty! Today, my 8 year old is sick in bed, so I’m doing all that I can to keep my preschooler out of his hair, allowing him to rest and recover. I decided finger...
