What are you cooking today? Well I cooked some delicious Caldo de Res or a lot of people know it as “Cocido” which is Beef Broth or Stew. My dad was a fan of these type of recipes, he even used to cook this in summer!!! I know, a bit crazy right? But according to him this dish makes miracles, especially for children, he used to make us eat everything in it. Continue reading “Caldo de Res (Beef Broth)”
The summer is almost around the corner and with a bit more sun every day I feel very inspired. Today I cooked this lovely and very refreshing cold soup or gazpacho with some nice cucumber and delicious ripe avocados and to give that crunch to this silky soup I pickled some veggies in lime and salt and I finished it off with some good quality extra virgin olive oil, fresh fennel & Maldon salt, and a good squeeze of lime!

Hola amigos! I am back, after spending quite a few weeks recovering from my jetlag, I am back in business!
Today was Cooking-beans-Monday at home. I love doing this every time I run out of the beans I store in the freezer. I usually tend to cook lots, so I always have a some sort of beans supply ready for any Mexican recipe. Today I cooked pinto and black beans, both types very popular in Mexico. Continue reading “Sopa de Frijol Negro (Black Bean Soup)”
It has been a very busy week, full of new things and excitement. Today’s recipe is inspired by a lovely gazpacho I had yesterday during a talk about health by the lovely women from “fig and bloom”, Dorothy, the chef of the group, cooked this refreshing gazpacho soup with cucumber, avocado and jalapeños, so I thought I’d make my own version with a Mexican twist.
