where's the avocado?

Didn't happen to have any the night la esposita made that soup. Full disclosure: I took that picture before she grated cheese all over it and obscured the colorful ingredients.

By the way, there's been a lot of recipe action on Ana's blog (signature line*). The most recent, from Distant Cousin: Regeneration, involved coconut shrimp, and this riff by Ana: "I was thinking about coconut shrimp, but with a Thai variation. I had to run to town to get some green curry paste to mix with the coconut milk and whole leaves of fresh basil, like the Thais use...."

Anju, apropos of the Mexican market in your signature, here's an Italian market, taken by daughter #2...both so atypical of what we have here. Sigh.

After making this ham and cheese hoagie for lunch today, I thought it looked so good that I'd share it here. :)

Salmon and sauteed spinach.  Sorry for the plastic utensils but it was still good!

Because when you read something funny on Kindleboards, you end up spitting food all over the keyboard.

On the larger side, how about a potato pizza? This happens to be the recipe of the moment right now at Ana Darcy's blog (below). Delicious!

serving up the feast at a wedding, I surprised the grandmother of the bride who did all the cooking!


This is the plate served everyone, birria (meat stew from goat or cow), refried beans and red rice


this is the cake, 4 little ones around the bottom as well as the tiers.  We left before they cut it (waaay past my bedtime) so don't know what kind it was

I've spent the last couple days exploring not just my new K2, but these forums too...and I stumble across a thread after my own heart!!

I'm a baker and I lovelovelove taking photos of the various things I come up with.  Soooo, here are some various dessert type items.  Some are watermarked for eventual addition to the portfolio I'll eventually set up.   :D


Xmas cake with white chocolate filigrees


Chocolate cake w/mint icing


What I came up with in response to a request for "the most chocolaty cake EVER"


Chocolate peanut butter cake


Ice cream cone cupcakes


Not a great pic, but one of my favorite items - choco mousse cake w/chocolate filigree and "Drunk Hot Fudge Sauce" (hot fudge sauce with cinnamon, a touch of jalapeno, and tequila)


Wedding cakes for my sister - vanilla w/raspberry filling for the big cake and the smaller cakes are plain vanilla (blue roses), chocolate w/white mint icing (mint leaves) and peanut butter truffle (chocolate shards)


Cheesecake w/raspberry & peach coulis


Cinnamon buns!!


Bittersweet chocolate Whoopie pies


Citrus mascarpone mousse

Now I'm hungry...

In New Mexico, the traditional good-luck dish for New Year's is posole, a hominy stew with onions, garlic, red chile and usually pork.  I make mine with turkey tenderloin instead.



Happy New Year, everyone!

In Texas it is black-eyed peas, but I don't have any pictures, and didn't get any  :(

In Mexico (Old) posole is made with either pork (red) or chicken (green) and neither or very spicy.  Nice picture, makes me want to go find some  ;D
