. . If  Breakfast – Good Breakfast ! Usually I am a coffe and bananas kind of breakfast guy, but today…… . .  Life is Good !     🙂 > 

Caramelized Banana & Chocolate Burrito With Strawberry Preserve

: : : While preparing crepes is a snap, both time-wise and on difficulty level, defrosting a large flour tortilla is even easier and faster 🙂 Also, the taste and texture are a bit more rustic, so it fits perfectly with the other ingredients for this dish. Usually, this is a bit substantial for a […]

German “Burrito”

: : : Burritos are a traditional food of Ciudad Juárez, a city bordering El Paso, Texas, in the northern Mexican state of Chihuahua, where people buy them at restaurants and roadside stands. Northern Mexican border towns like Villa Ahumada have an established reputation for serving burritos. Authentic Mexican burritos are usually small and thin, with flour tortillas containing only one or two of several ingredients: either some […]

Breakfast Of Champions # 69 – “Tortilla With Chorizo”

> > > Today was a very special day for me and there was a possibility that the day would not end as I had planned for the past year and a half. Because of that and the resulting tension, I was not able to sleep last night and the night before, so by the […]

Fusilli Lunghi With Avocado And Sambal

> > > Two weeks ago I prepared avocado preserve. In the meantime I used most of it for breakfast, different egg preparations as well as different sidings such as focaccia, tortillas and rice. For today’s delicious pasta dish I used the last of the preserve. I am happy to say that the preserve held […]

Tlaxcaltotopochtl Y Ensalada De Camaron Con Aguacate

> “Totopos With Shrimp And Avocado Salad”. . The name  totopo  comes from the Aztec word tlaxcaltotopochtl. It is a combination of the word for a tortilla, tlaxcalli, and the word for thunder. Combined, it means “tortillas that are noisy to chew”. Originally, totopos are prepared with corn tortillas. They can be fried, as I have done here, or baked […]

Easy Does It # 33 – Brie and Capocollo Pie

> > As  I have mentioned before, I love to prepare my own pizza dough, pie dough, tortillas, fresh pasta, and a myriad of other things which are usually better (although not always) when home made. On the other hand, sometimes this is just not very practical or sensible, for example at times when there is […]

Fajas De Res

> > > To  prepare a great meal is no problem for most of us – as long as there is plenty of time, money and somebody who cleans up the mess afterward. But what if there isn’t ??  Well, how about this easy solution: Fajas De Res (Beef Fajitas) – Cut and marinate the beef […]

Mexican Treasures – Guacamole, Escabeche De Cebolla, Salsa Mexicana

> > For  me, these three condiments are not to be missed to accompany any Mexican-style meal I prepare at home. In my opinion, they also fit very well with a wide range of dishes of non-Mexican cuisine from around the world. They pair nicely with steaks, schnitzel, sandwiches, salads, meat, seafood, vegetables, eggs, etc. In fact, I usually have at […]

Salad Of Chili Shrimp, Chicorée Frisée, Pear And Sun-Dried Tomato (Or Is It A Taco ?)

> > This  morning for breakfast I had leftover pasta from last night, which required a much lighter lunch and no dinner (Maybe a bit of ice cream though 🙂 So, at around noon, off to the fishmonger down the road to get some fresh shrimp and to the supermarket to see what’s available that would […]
