The Culture of Food

Traditional Pastel de 3 Leches {Recipe}

Traditional pastel de tres leches, or three milks cake calls for condensed milk, evaporated milk and whole milk. In many Latin American countries, this cake is a must at weddings and quinceañeras and paired with seasonal fruit and nuts.  It’s dense, moist, fluffy and sweet; a perfect combination to showcase at celebrations and family gatherings.   Many bakers add rum, cognac or rompope to the milk mixture to balance out the sugar.  I went a step further and drizzled itRead More ...

Chilean Chicken Empanadas {Recipe}

I absolutely love cooking for my son.  Although, he’s only three years old, he knows his mom is happy when he “hmmms!” and “ohh ricos!” my food.  This week, he’ll be starting preschool and I want his first day to be a memorable one.  For his first official school lunch, I will be packing some Chilean empanadas we learned how to make from one of his favorite shows on PBS KIDS GO!, Postcards from Buster!

Cocadas For Your Valentine {Recipe}

Living in a border town like El Paso, Texas, it was not unusual to cross the border down to Mexico on a weekly basis. Mexico was ten minutes away and Sunday morning mass, breakfast and maybe even a haircut were our Ciudad Juarez family day trips. This was a custom for many families living in a border town. As we headed back to the U.S. the wait at the crossing bridge seemed an eternity as kids. We napped, read theRead More ...

Green Leafy Salad with Persimmons and Pomegranates {Recipe}

This salad is a celebration of winter.  Every year, I wait anxiously for persimmons and pomegranates to be in season to enjoy this tangy, crunchy and peppery salad. The pomegranate kernels, Nakano Natural Rice Vinegar and Holland House Red Wine Vinegar compliment the sweetness of the persimmons and woody hazelnut flavor.   This salad has been known to convert non-salad believers into salad enthusiasts. Green Leafy Salad with Persimmons and Pomegranates  2/3 cup shelled hazelnuts 1 ½ tablespoons + 1Read More ...

Among the many foods my husband and I crave from Mexico, enfrijoladas and chilaquiles definitely top the list. My husband is always saying that the enfrijoladas they made in his house growing up were the best (so were the quesadillas and chiles rellenos and romeritos and the list goes on and on and on!) So you can imagine I am measured with a really long stick any time I attempt to make any really Mexican meal. I definitely need inspirationRead More ...
