Recipe: Woman Crush Wednesday

Hooray for Hump Day because once again it is Woman Crush Wednesday. This week the 68th gorgeous gourmet gal is getting the love.

It is great to be back home after three weeks of traveling in America and Canada.

But for a festive day which is all about winning a war (the Mexicans against the French at the battle of Pueblo) it sure is fun. Especially for someone like me who loves Mexican food, culture, and people! Continue reading
