$1200 to San Antonio Food Bank!!

Thank you to all who participated in my first virtual class! Because of you, I just donated $1200 to the San Antonio Food Bank!

Every dollar donated to the San Antonio Food Bank translates into 7 meals, so that means we donated 8400 meals to our local community!

Hope to see everyone back in my kitchen mid-summer!

Keep Cooking and Stay Healthy!

New Virtual Class!

Due to the our present health crisis I am unable to teach the “Memories of Mexico” class. But as they say- necessity is the mother of invention- so I have decided to try a new method of teaching, to keep my kitchen in business!
Memories of Mexico class will be offered as a virtual class- just in time for Cinco de Mayo! Details below the photos.

Fideo Soup

Hearts of Palm Ceviche

Roast Pork with Ancho-Guajillo Sauce, Pickled Shallots and Parsley Sauce

Mexican Wedding Cookies

When you sign up for the class you will receive 5 recipe cards by mail. You will also receive by email a photo diary (see example by clicking on orange link below) of each recipe along with special notes to help you create the perfect meal on your own.

The cost of the virtual class is $25, payable as usual by Venmo or check. And just like my regular classes, a portion of each reservation will go to feeding the hungry in San Antonio. For this class, I am choosing the San Antonio Food Bank.

Farro Salad!

Cooking with kitchen staples does not have to be boring and can certainly be healthful!
I love keeping quick-cooking grains in my pantry for easy, healthy meals. This salad can be tweaked with whatever ingredients you have available and is delicious as a side for dinner, or a quick lunch!

Salmon Tacos!

Craving tacos, but trying to make taco night a bit healthier? This is what I had for dinner last night- simple, delicious and nutritious! You can make the pesto and crema to go with, or you can just top with some seasoned cabbage and a wedge of avocado. To make a simple slaw topping, I like to grab a bag of angel shredded cabbage from store and make a simple dressing of lime juice, mayo and the same seasoning blend I put on salmon.
Buen Provecho!
