As the weather heats up and my kids are home from school, one of my go-to meals to feed my family is ceviche. Ceviche is God’s gift to our taste buds. Fish, shrimp, lobster, crab, abalone, octopus — it’s what seafood heaven tastes like. If you haven’t tried ceviche before, I don’t know if we can be friends. Ceviche is a seafood dish that is tossed in citrus juices that “cook” the fish.
My husband tells me I am a difficult person to shop for but I don’t believe it. If you pay close attention to what a person likes, then you’ve won half the battle of gift-giving. I guess the key is being an observant person. So, if you’re really paying attention then you’d know I don’t drink…
Did you know you can use cantaloupe seeds to make the most deliciously creamy drink called Horchata de Melon? I didn’t! It’s so easy and refreshing to make, it’s the perfect summer drink.
You guys know how much I love a good Mexican market. If I can find a carniceria, a panaderia, a tortilleria, a floreria and freshly made agua frescas, my heart is happy. Anaheim is the newest community to welcome Northgate Market.
Make your own Mexican rice with this easy recipe. My mama says the secret to delicious rice is in the mano: the love in the hands that prepared the food.
Make this delicious, filling street style carne asada salad bowl for lunch using a piece of baked flatbread as your salad “bowl”. You can totally ditch the fried tortilla — I love this idea. It’s so good!
Tortas made with grilled carne ranchera, homemade frijoles, avocado and salsa molcajete in the summer…now you are speaking my love language.
If you can’t deal early in the morning (like me) but you still have to make breakfast, why not makes these yummy concoctions filled with yogurt, cereal, fruit, oats and hemp seeds? They are super easy to make and your family will be happy.
Do you ever wonder where your food comes from? It’s so easy to consume without giving it a second thought. I’m guilty of this. I love that people are starting to wonder more and more about their food and who grows it, who picks it and how quickly it ends up at our own table….
Imagine shopping at a Mexican mercado where you can find everything you need under one roof — that’s what I discovered at Northgate Market. Spending time at the grocery store is not my idea of fun, but juggling a large family and working from home means I find myself there more often than I’d like….
