Cinco de Mayo: Part III

What is a Cinco de Mayo celebration without a margarita? In my opinion, not a great one! My friends and I love celebrating this holiday and we always do it with a margarita in our hand.

Though there are a lot of delicious margaritas out there, I found a recipe for one that I think everyone should try. This coconut mango margarita is absolutely amazing! The coconut water and the mango combine together and create an amazingly refreshing taste. It’s light and fruity but not overly sweet! It’s so great! And the best part (in my opinion) is that it masks the taste of tequila!

I hope you all enjoy this as much as my friends and I are going to!

Cinco de Mayo: Part II

While I was hunting for some more delicious Cinco de Mayo recipes, I came across a vegetarian tamale recipe that sounds amazing! I haven’t had a tamale since long before I became a vegetarian and I’ve never made them so I’m really looking forward to giving it a shot!

There are a lot of steps that go into making tamales but I can’t imagine that they would require that much work if they weren’t worth it. My plan for the evening is to make as many of these as I can manage. I know I’ll be making them a bit in advance since Cinco de Mayo is on Saturday but the glory of tamales is that you can freeze them!

Don’t they look absolutely delicious! I hope you all enjoy these!

Happy cooking!

Cinco de Mayo: Part I

With Cinco de Mayo quickly approaching, I realized that I had no recipes for the party that I’m planning that evening. My friends and I always get together to celebrate Cinco de Mayo and this year it’s my turn to host the party. As I’ve told you before, most of my friends aren’t vegetarians but I decided that I was going to cook an entirely vegetarian meal.

Salsa is absolutely amazing and I plan on making several different batches: hot, mild, black bean and corn, and salsa verde. Salsa Verde is a new one for me so I went on the hunt for a recipe that looked easy enough but that could also be made in large batches cost effectively, and I found one!

This salsa verde recipe by Food Network is so delicious! I tried to make a small serving of it and it was amazing! Any salsa lover is going to enjoy this recipe!

Happy cooking!
