If you love food as much as I do then we will for sure become great friends. I’m Hispanic, so that right there tells you that I’ve been around Mexican food all of my life. Grew up watching my mother cook every day and later when I was old enough to help in the kitchen she let me assist her with the catering she did for many events. Many moons back I was told by one of my sisters that I should write a cookbook with our mother’s recipes. But to be honest I thought (and still think) that writing a book was hard work and not something I wanted to get into. But little did I know that here I was going to be, Blogging about the recipes that my mother taught us and that now I’m sharing with all you foodies!
To me, cooking is being able to spend time with family. Especially when there is a real reason to celebrate. and by real reason I mean an actual birthday, wedding, quinceanera, bautizo, etc. let’s admit it, us latinos find any excuse to do our carne asada and drink. Am I right? or at least this latino household does. Any little event is good enough to get the family together for a fun gathering. Like, for instance, my daughter getting a good grade in a recent project is a reason to celebrate, Tio Raul getting new tires on his car is also a reason to fire up the grill and get some family together. Let’s just be honest with ourselves and admit that we love food. Therefore any reason is a good reason for a backyard Carnita Asada!
