Spicy Chorizo Burger with Pimento Cheese

We are just over halfway through August! Can you believe it!? Soon it will be September and fall will be here. But summer isn’t over yet. There are still a few good weeks of grilling left. This may sound ridiculous but not until I moved to the Midwest did I know that non-cured chorizo existed….

Thing to Do in Puerto Rico: Guavate

In the hierarchy of proteins pork is king in Puerto Rico, and there is no place that more clearly defines authentic Puerto Rican food and our love for pork then a small stretch of road along Rt.184 in Cayey Puerto Rico. Tucked away up in the mountains of Cayey is pork heaven, a mile of…

Citrus Herb Glazed Ribs

The Fourth of July is around the corner and what says July 4th more than ribs!? Well, there is the Declaration of Independence, but I am talking food here, specifically pork. I am fanatical about pork in all forms so when I was asked to partner with the National Pork Board I was on board….

Piragua de Crema (Cream Shaved Ice)

I am so excited about this series! Every Saturday over the next ten weeks I will be sharing a new homemade piragua flavor. If you’re not familiar with piragua it’s a flavored shaved ice treat sold by street vendors in Puerto Rico. Some of the vendors still shave large blocks of ice by hand. I will be sharing some traditional flavors…

Strawberry Jalapeño Salsa

I like most people have an appreciation for salsa. Anytime I go to a restaurant and chips and salsa are placed before me I can not help but, stuff my face with chip after chip. Time and time again I try to demonstrate some semblance of self-control when a bowl of chips and salsa is plopped…

Summer Recipes

Before the weekend comes around I am full of plans of productivity. Plans of what project I am going to tackle and what activities I’m going to do but, sometimes the best-laid plans are pointless. Especially when you run into a marathon of Jurassic Park movies. I’d seen the original Jurassic Park multiple times, but I…

Bacalao (Salted Cod Salad)

When I was a kid, my grandmother would make this salad, and it was one of the few things I would refuse to eat.  Great way to start off a food post huh? Of course, I don’t think anyone can successfully feed a child salted cod.  If you have, please let me know.  After much…

Summer Strawberry Salad with Grilled Chicken

One of my favorite things to eat during the summer is a hearty salad with grilled meat. A bowl of salad greens and charred grilled meat is the perfect summertime dinner. While I was in Phoneix last month my lovely friend Lynn from 365 Days of Baking and More made a salad with the most wonderful poppyseed…

Blackberry Thyme and Vanilla Lemonade

Just as I had hoped, June has come, and the rain is gone!!! And, just in time too! The ditches and creeks that I cross on the highway were probably 3 feet from the bridges. It was nuts! But, summer has officially arrived in Texas and even though I will spend most of the summer melting…

How to Make Fresh Pasta

Who doesn’t love pasta?  I think everyone can appreciate curling up with a bowl of pasta once in a while.  Except my weirdo husband who isn’t a “fan” of pasta. I know right!?  Just weird! I love pasta not only because it’s awesome, but it’s so versatile.  It can be layered in a lasagna, stuffed…
