Growing up shrimps were my most favourite seafood. Mostly my mother would prepare them in a coctel de camaron or shrimp cocktail (recipe coming soon), and that was always my preferred way of eating them. Every shrimp meal I so looked forward to with great anticipation. I still love shrimp, even though they are not […]

There is great comfort to be found in simple food. Savoury, fresh, vibrant, and spicy flavours; with some warm corn tortillas thrown in, and now we’re on a great path to comfort food for me. I didn’t grow up eating fajitas, in fact it wasn’t until my family moved to the US that I even […]

One of the things I most looked forward to before arriving in (or should I say, moving back to) Mexico was all of the exotic and tropical fruits; many of which I’d only seen pictures of, and others I had not tasted since my childhood visits to Mexico. These past eight months have been wonderful […]

Happy Monday amigos! I have a very casual post to share with you today, just a little talk about a new type of avocado I discovered this weekend.
