"When I walk into my kitchen today, I am not alone. Whether we know it or not, none of us is. We bring fathers and mothers and kitchen tables, and every meal we have ever eaten. Food is never just food. It's also a way of getting at something else: who we are, who we have been, and who we want to be."........
Some of the recipes that I have tried,tested and tasted..and some that I want to try,test and taste... :) ....and other useful information all collected and saved in one place.....

Make it your way
Take to the table, top with chunky guacamole and cooling sour cream – then let everyone just dig in!
If you can’t find chorizo, chop up a 3 or 4 standard sausages and add a few chopped jalapeños to the pan when cooking to create that spicy taste!
