Best. Burritos. Ever…

This weekend the weather turned off cool and crisp. Not cold, I don’t think my veggie plants are in any danger, but cooler than I like this time of year. (Then again, I’m into shorts and bare feet by Texas Independence.) Cool weather is a good excuse to break out the slow cooker and make […]

Stuffing Cubanelles for Flavor and Profit

My one, solitary cubanelle plant in the garden has been a strong producer all season. The first batch of peppers I got from the plant amounted to only six, but they were large, firm and tasty. The next cycle produced over three dozen medium-sized chiles, some of which I purposely let ripen on the plant. […]

This entry is part of a series, Restaurants»

Deep in Mexico, about halfway between Acapulco and Mazatlan, lies a famous city: Guadalajara, the capital of the state of Jalisco. Populous, compact and relatively well laid-out, this city boasts proud-spirited citizens and great food. The state of Jalisco is known for famous seafood and great […]

Recipe du Jour: Slow-Cooker Burrito Beef, and Baked Burritos

Any Restaurant With Tequila in the Name is the Place for Me

My father-in-law and I hadn’t been on a major foraging expedition in something like three weeks. (Kai wanted to go along too, and we were too soft-hearted to say no.) For us, that’s like more than five months. (In dog years.) There were chores to be done, and parts to be gathered in town. […]

One Last Plate of Tex-Mex, Then We Go

The plane leaves in less that 48 hours for Ireland, and I’m ready to go. Well, okay, I’m not quite ready. Other than finishing a report or two, traveling home, then shopping, packing and stuff like that, though, I’m ready.

Oh, and I really, really need a Tex-Mex fix. Bad. I mean a good one. […]

Thursday Fish: Chunky Ceviche

Sometimes you want fish, but you just don’t want to cook. Like maybe it’s really hot out. Or you just want a quick, chilled appetizer.

Whatever you need, this version of ceviche will get the job done for you…

Software:

1 lb tilapia fillets (or similar whitefish)
12 oz fresh lime juice (six limes or so)
1/2 tablespoon dried Mexican […]

A Small Step to Saving the Planet…

These days, everybody’s working to save the planet. I also work to have good taste. Or at least food that tastes good. (See earlier post on the F-BOM.)

Well, you can’t say I’m not doing my part. Shoot, I even invented a chili verde that’s guaranteed to support the effort. I mean, it’s definitely green! That […]
