Every time I opened my laptop this past week, I saw something Mexican. It whetted my appetite so I made my own little Cinco de Mayo party with what I had on hand. Continue Reading
While everyone was eating corned beef and cabbage this past weekend, I ate a “cajun spiced Salmon Rueben” and an “open-faced chipotle shrimp tortilla”.

No, it’s not me. I’m only approaching 4 years. But my friend, Lori Lynn of Taste With the Eyes, is celebrating her fifth anniversary by inviting 5 bloggers to guest post on her blog. If you know LL’s work, you know this is an honor with a capital-and-bolded H.

I seem to be thinking about Spain a lot these days as witnessed by my last few posts. Perhaps I’m channeling my ancestors. Or, perhaps I’m subconsciously psyching myself for another trip to the Motherland. One can hope for the latter. Whatever the reason, it makes for good eats! And while I couldn’t set a chair for each of you at the table, I hope you’ll feel like you were there …perhaps even be inspired to create a similarly themed dinner in your home?
