Mmmm delish!

This a pic from my new cookbook Stir frying to the sky's edge by Grace Young
This Stir fried Ginger Tomato Beef my b-day is coming and I may just treat myself!. I'm out of sherry though may have to get rice wine instead. Of course this would be a flimsy excuse to go back to Central market. We shall see....

Finally my cookbook came today

I have to warn you .I'm pretty tight fisted when it comes to buying books off Amazon. I love nothing more than paying a penny,dime, or quarter for a book.I had been lusting after this one for awhile and decided to treat myself by paying 7.00 whole dollars(gasp!) Yes the book retails for $30.00 but $7.00 is a splurge in my universe. It was totally worth it.

A few recipes I may try:

Oaxaca-style mushroom cheese quesadillas

Rodrigo style fish

Shrimp croquettes in tomato broth

And the recipe I saw demonstrated on public television Mexican style pasta

I think more chefs should use Penny De LosSantos as their photographer She helped give the recipes and history a depth most cookbooks don't have. Well I m off to read this

Some more before I start sounding like a Amazon review Lol

About This blog

My fondest memoreis in my life are the ones at my grandmother's table.I loved not only the warm,velvety ,slightly sweet 7-up cake, but the affirmation that I was loved. What started out as a creative outlet and a place to honor her loving,generous spirit has evolved into a food blog where I can blather on about recipes, food trends, and basically any food related topic that foodies would like, ....you get the idea. I am sure my family and anyone I've been friendly with for more than 2 minutes will breathe a collective sigh of relief, since I don't have to dump my food conversations on them all the time. Also to mix things up I will share scrapbook pages. I want the blog to refect who I am and what I like to do when apart from being a full time Mama and part time college student.Thank you for sharing this journey of exploration with me.
