The end of the year is nearly approaching, and what a year it has been. We started our blog half way through 2011, and I can’t believe how wonderful it has been discovering new places and cuisine. I want to thank all of my readers for following and supporting Life & Food. It is such an amazing feeling to know that my posts are actually being read. I can’t wait to see what 2012 brings, and the food adventures that it will take us on.
Festival de las Brasas, la Cerveza y el Vino
The Festival de Las Brasas was a wonderful day spent with family. We got to experience and taste the delicious cuisine from different restaurants in Tijuana. This Oyster will forever be a great memory in my mind. It’s 9 am, and I could easily eat quite a few of them at the moment.
Olive Oil & Thyme Muffins With Lemon Glaze
These sweet and savory muffins were one of my favorite baked goods that I made this past year. I had a lot of people try out the recipe, and they ended up loving it. I am not the best baker in the world, so when something comes out delicious, I cherish it.
Mercado Hidalgo de Tijuana
Visiting the Mercado de Hidalgo in Tijuana, was one of my favorite experiences this past year. If you still have not had a chance to go, please try and take the time to visit here. I can’t wait to go back, there is still so much more to be explored.
After going to Chef Marcela Valladolid’s book signing, and flipping through her new book ‘Mexican Made Easy’, I didn’t even know where to begin. There are so many recipes that I not only want to make, but that will also most likely bring back childhood memories for my husband. This healthier version of Horchata is definitely a staple in a refrigerator from now on.
Distinct Flavors of Baja
The Distinct flavors of Baja post was another amazing day of food with friends. If you are looking for a couple of places to eat at in Tijuana, I suggest you visit if not all of these, at least one of them. I can still taste the pizza that I had at El Taller, and will be heading back there for another tasty meal.
Here I go again with another delicious recipe from ‘Mexican Made Easy’. This chocoflan is really something else. I can honestly say that I have never made so many in my entire life. This rich and decadent cake will be a star at your next family gathering.
