Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo

Let’s just cut straight to the margaritas. Sure, it would be nice if you made (or ordered) some crunchy fish tacos, fruity tacos al pastor, or rich chicken enchiladas (maybe Suiza style?) to celebrate Cinco de Mayo on May 5.

Christmas in July

Okay, in June. Winter was over, and I still had a canister of Trader Joe’s Wintry Blend coffee in the cupboard.  Unlike other flavored coffees, which are made with (to me) harsh extracts, this one has whole spices ground up with the beans – cardamom, clove, pink and green peppercorns, a touch of cinnamon. I … Continue reading
