Today is Cinco de Mayo if you didn’t already know. Are you and your family celebrating? We are and having a great time spending the day together. Thanks to Goya Foods we are able to enjoy a few things that we love along with a great cookbook to try new things.
When Walmart and Latina Mom Bloggers asked me to create an original steak recipe to help spread the word of their Steak Over Challenge, where local firefighters compete for top Grill honors, I accepted and was thrilled to come up with something. I am going to be honest and say that while I am perfectly fine with preparing all of the foods when it comes to the actual grilling Edgar does that.
Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner (May 5th) and I don’t about all of you but we will celebrating it. This year I am so thrilled to have some new recipes to try out thanks to my connection with Role Mommy Writer’s Network from Food Network celebrity chef Ingrid Hoffman. Doesn’t that just sound great! Oh wit not to mention some great printable for your children to enjoy the holiday as well. Check out one of the recipes that I am going to be making this weekend for sure ( a little test run before the big event!)
This is one of those wonderful dishes that you can actually adjust however you choose to. I don’t always use fresh corn, sometimes I use frozen corn on the cob. Also I don’t put the chili powder on mine (I do Edgar’s) because I can’t have things that are super hot. My poor little stomach just can’t handle that. For my mom I cut her’s off the cob but it is still just as great. This is something I will be making a lot come spring and summer. I may even do some this weekend.
I recently told you all how soybean oil is not only one of the versatile ingredients you can use but that nearly all oil labeled vegetable is actually soybean oil! Isn’t that crazy? I didn’t believe it at first either but I checked my oil and there it was in black and white. I also made a point of checking when I was in the grocery store and it is true! This actually makes me feel better because soybean oil is better for your health. Well I have been learning more and more about soybean through the United Soybean Board’s Soy Connection website and I have discovered they have some great recipes. I want to share with you the 5 that I want to try out the most!
My aunt and mom love Pecan Pie but because of their dentures they really can’t eat it. My aunt recently found what she calls Pecan Meal and brought some over for me to make a pie out of. This “meal” is really nothing more than ground pecans and let me tell you they are good. the recipe for the pie is very simple.
A few years ago I wanted to include more traditions from my husband’s culture into our holiday. Since I was just learning to make Mexican dishes I didn’t want to do something that would not taste good because I didn’t know how to make it. I thought about what I could make for Posadas which begins on December 16th and continues for 9 days in celebration of the journey to Bethlehem. I began talking to my mother in-law about Posadas recipes and what I could do. She told me to start my own tradition by making something I wanted.
