Enchilada Sauce Recipe

People have been asking why I don't have an enchilada sauce recipe on my site. Well now I do. The reason it took so long was because I wasn't at liberty to use the one we used in our restaurant.

That delicious recipe belongs to my dad. You know how some recipes are sacred? Well that's one of those kinds of recipes. I was really hoping to bottle it someday and maybe sell it on my site. Who knows maybe we will do that.

In the mean time, I've created an enchilada sauce recipe that's a close version to the original. But not quite. This keeps everybody happy. And it's really tasty too. Heck, I'd never put a recipe up I didn't think was darn good.

I love the fact that I can go to my mexican food site and look up my favorite recipes anytime. It's so nice that I can access them from anywhere.

So if you are looking for some good old Mexican food recipes, you know where to look.

Some Pictures of The Cake and Decorations For My Parents 55th Anniversary Party

We had the anniversary party yesterday and not everything went as we had hoped. You can read more about it on my cooking blog.

I have included one picture to give you an idea of how the ribbon decorating went although the decorating doesn't look as impressive in the picture as it did in person.

My sister-in-law Debbie made the cake the morning of the party so I was able to snap a few pictures of her in the process. The cake turned out great as you will see.

Upcoming in future posts will be on the food we served. Here is the beginning of the blog on our parents anniversary party.

See you on the next post,

My Parents 55th Wedding Anniversary Party Ideas

I've started writing in my other blog about me and my siblings giving my parents an anniversary party for their 55th wedding anniversary. Not too many couples even make it to 50 so this is a special party.

I am sharing our ideas to help you with your next party. The size of our party is relatively small. Only 35 to 40 people. I am going to share with you our party decorating ideas as well as our menu and other ideas for having a successful party.

This party won't be a surprise mainly because of my mom's poor health. We wanted to be sure she even wanted a party and even how many people she wanted.

So check it out if you are looking for party ideas. I figure if I can find just one good idea then it is worth checking out.

If you have any party ideas you would like to share, I'd be happy to post them on my website blog. You can send them to me here if you like. I'd love to hear from you.

I will also plan to include pictures so you can see what we did. These won't be up for a while. Probably not until after the party on July 8th.

Hope you had a great 4th of July,



A Couple Of New Recipes

I've got two new recipes for you to try on my cooking website.

The first one is a tropical smoothie recipe. This is a very refreshing drink that not only tastes great, it's easy and fast to make and it's incredibly healthy for you. This smoothie recipe isn't loaded with a bunch of sugar either.

The only sugar comes from the fruit. Mainly the mandarin oranges, pineapple and banana. Check it out. You'll love the flavor.

My second recipe is quite tasty too. Summer is a great time to cook up some steak fajitas on the bbq.

The secret to great fajitas is the marinade. Check mine out. Just make sure you marinade for at least 8 hours. I like to do mine overnight so the meat is super tender.

An Easy Mexican Dessert - Almendrado

Looking for a light easy mexican dessert to finish off a big Mexican dinner? Just look at that picture. Well this dessert is one great way to do it. I absolutely love the almond flavor in this recipe. And the nuts really make it too.

The colorful red, white and green part is flavored egg whites. This is to represent the Mexican flag and is sometimes called the Mexican flag dessert.

I think it would also make a great 4th of July dessert. Just change the color to red, white and blue. What a versatile easy Mexican dessert this is. But the best part is the taste.

Heck I love this dessert so much I'd even consider coloring the "flag" orange for Halloween and green and red for Christmas.

Check out this wonderful easy Mexican dessert.

Easy Mexican Dessert Recipe - Almendrado

Looking for an easy Mexican dessert to finish off that wonderful Mexican meal? I've got a special one for you to try. This is called Almendrado or the Mexican Flag dessert.

How did it get that name? Well, it sort of resembles the Mexican flag with it's green, white, and red layers (pink really). But it does have a festive look to it don't you think?

And the toasted almonds sprinkled on top give a wonderful crunch to this otherwise light and refreshing dessert. I absoulutely love the almond flavor too. This is a great dessert after a heavy meal which is usually the case when you are having Mexican food.

So be sure and check out my easy mexican dessert recipe I'm convinced you'll love it.

Until next time,

Homemade Tamales Recipe

I know it's been a while since I've posted but I've got a good recipe that's worth the wait. This is a homemade tamales recipe complete with pictures.

Ever think about making tamales from scratch but thought they were too much work? Well they are a little work but it is doable.

My Mexican tamales are made with a nice tender pork butt roast and if you follow along I've got a nice masa recipe with a hint of garlic to finish them off.

My tamales recipe will make you anywhere from 18 to 36 tamales. You'll use a 7lb roast which will make about 3 dozen tamales and my masa recipe will get 18 tamales. Just double the masa recipe and that should even out with the pork.

I show you how to make authentic tamales with step by step instructions with pictures so anyone can make them. Check out these hot tamales. They really are good.
