Lemon Pickle (Achar)
Rating : Not Rated

This yummy lemon pickle I made with my mother in law while waiting for daughter to be born. She was 12 days late, so we figured...might as well pickle!! Lemon pickle was one of the pickles we made in addition to turmeric root/ginger pickle, and chile pickle.

Easy Enchilada Sauce
Rating : Not Rated

After many years of picking up the canned version, I decided to venture out to my local latino market and get the ingredients to make my own Enchilada sauce. Mind you, none of the cashiers at the store really knew how to make it, except for one who gave me a vague recipe in broken English. So I went home, and improvised...and it was pretty solid!

WalNutty Banana Bread
Rating : Not Rated

I was already baking a quiche and figured I may as well make full use of the oven, so I looked around and had three ripe bananas--which was my sign that I had to make some banana bread. The recipe is pretty simple and adapted from something else I found online. I am not an accomplished baker, but this recipe helps make me look like one!

Sarita's Savory Stew
Rating : Not Rated

Lots of S's in that description! I just whipped up this stew after my husband and I got back from vacation, thinking I had nothing in the fridge! He wanted something hearty and light on the carbs. Low and behold, there were just enough raw ingredients in my possession to make this stew. So since this stew comes from the urge to be resourceful, I encourage you to also experiment and not stick to the ingredients I list!

This is a quick savory recipe for a hot day. It is a bit light, so you may be hungry a few hours later if you have a real appetite!
