Ravioli and Tortellini

I really love good pasta.  When we lived state-side it was always a treat to buy a package of gourmet tortellini—mmmm.  Since that is impossible to come by in our little market town in Mexico, I’ve had to improvise!
Actually I never thought of making my own pasta until one night I walked into the mission [...]

Weird Food

I thought I’d start occasionally sharing some of the interesting food we eat here in Mexico!

Oh yah, here I go again…..talking about lentils.  But wait!  THIS is gooooood!
I came across this recipe on an awesome mommy blog that I’ve really been enjoying.  She has great, healthy recipes and I haven’t found much she writes about that I disagree with!  Go here to check it out!

We have a liter of milk delivered to our door every morning by a sweet little old lady who milks the cows herself.  We pay less for this fresh raw milk delivery than we would for store-bought!  I am very thankful for this!  You can read some about the benefits of raw milk here or [...]
