Vanilla Berry Smoothie Pops Recipe

Posted by: | 1 Comment

On my weekly visits to the grocery store, I always make sure to throw in a bag or two of frozen fruits and vegetables in my shopping cart.  No matter what curve balls our busy schedules throw at us during the week, I always end up incorporating frozen fruits or veggies in our weeknight meals. Whether I throw in a handful of frozen peas and carrots to my Spanish rice or broccoli florets to my boiling fideo, it’s always aRead More ...

Pastel Azteca in Salsa Verde {Recipe}

Posted by: | 16 Comments

Pastel Azteca, also known as enchilada casserole is a dish that guarantees all-around joy. It’s very easy to prepare, hearty enough for big appetites, freezes well on the weekends and re-heats even more flavorful for weekday lunches or dinners. Red enchilada sauce, bean sauce, mole sauce or tomato sauce can easily be the sauce of choice.  And if you prefer a meatier version, replace the chicken with picadillo or shredded beef.  Vegetarian?  Try the Tex-Mex version with mushrooms, black beansRead More ...

Creamy Layered Valentine Gelatin Treats {Recipe}

Posted by: | 15 Comments

Layered gelatin and in particular, creamy layered Jell-O is very special to me.  Not only is it a fun treat to enjoy but it also brings back so many vivid memories of Valentine’s Day during my elementary school years in Mexico. Valentine’s Day in Mexican schools was celebrated somewhat differently than in U.S. schools.  It was more of a gift exchange between students in which they had the option of participating if their family was economically able.  To be includedRead More ...

Coctel de Camarones | Shrimp Cocktail {Recipe}

Posted by: | 7 Comments

Mexican shrimp cocktail always brings a smile to my face. The tangy tomato entrada or “entrance” to an amazing meal is a tough dish to follow. The combination of sweet, tart and spicy is the perfect medley to accompany the plump shrimp overflowing from the tall glass it is served in. The most memorable and delicious shrimp cocktail I’ve ever experienced was at the Mercado Municipal in Zihuatanejo, a Mexican city in the state of Guerrero. Recommended by our taxiRead More ...
