Sabroso Restaurant

This restaurant has been on my wishlist as I was curious about it. Curiosity has been more than satisfied. I realize that large groups perhaps are not the appropriate setting for spectacular service, but ours could really use some improvement. We had at least 20 people in our party. The evening started out good; our … Continue reading

AÑEJO Restaurant

A friend suggested that we try AÑEJO for lunch as I seemed to be on a Mexican kick. It came highly recommended. So the three of us took our time with a leisurely lunch on Sunday.

These have a more even thickness, and they are thicker. I would almost call them roti.  My hand rolled ones are thinner but obviously not … Continue reading

Heuvos Rancheros

Thought I’d send hubby off to work with a nice breakfast this morning. I had learned to make some Mexican food from scratch many moons ago. Found a recipe for hand made tortillas in the back of my recipe binder.  Tastes so much better than store bought ones. Also dug out the homemade salsa we … Continue reading
