May 25, 2017

This post was sponsored by HERDEZ®. All opinions and thoughts are my own. Tacos de Lengua (beef tongue) and Taco de Cabeza (beef head) are very popular in taquerias all over Mexico.  In fact, I’m sure you’ve come across it on taco truck menus or any authentic Mexican restaurant in the U.S.  Growing up my mom would make tacos de lengua regularly, since it was my dad’s favorite dish.  My mom would bring the lengua home from the local Mexican market…

April 13, 2017

The pasta is served topped with shredded Mizithra cheese (a Greek hard…

March 22, 2016

Sponsored post by Lunchbox Sopa de fideo is one of the most traditional soup recipes in my home.  I remember as a child my mom would always make this delicious soup when we got home from school.  In fact, you’ll find this thin pasta in most Mexican homes.  I guess you can say it’s our version of spaghetti, but in a juicy warm tomato based chicken broth.  If you go to any Latin market, you’ll find two types of “fideo”,…
