I tend to be a do it all or not at all type, when it comes to some things in my life. And, yes there are some areas that I do things half-ass, no need to let me know now that I’ve said it.
Who doesn’t love churro’s? And when I made these for Rene years ago, he loved them, and ask’s me to make them every so often. I usually don’t, I somehow manage to get out of it, but not with a happy husband, so I finally gave in the other day and made some for him. He was happy, all is well….
I love a good empanada, and since I bought a set of dough presses awhile back and haven’t used them yet. There are tasty, and can be finned with just about anything, form chicken, & beef, to peaches or apples for a sweeter taste!
I love this super easy recipe, and so does my husband, so that’s a score in my book!
You can find this recipe one of Rachel Ray’s book, now I know there are a lot of people out there that don’t care for her, but lets admit, she can cook!
About every week Rene call’s and talks to his mama for at least and hour and catches up on what’s going on with his parents and brother, and I always ask about when they’re going to make the trip out to come see us. And to be honest, it’s because I miss my mother-in-laws cooking SO MUCH, I love, love, love Mexican food, and since she was born and raised in Mexico, she can cook like nobodies business. The only problem is, her cookbook is her brain, and, well I can’t take that, so we’ve (Rene and I) devised a plan, when she comes out, we’ll go to the Hispanic supermarket, and take her with and buy a crap ton of food, and she’ll cook, I’ll make sure everything gets measures, take pictures, and Rene will help with the translation. I’ve told Rene too, once we get this done I’m going to make all her recipes into a cookbook….A REAL, TRADITIONAL MEXICAN FOOD COOKBOOK!!
