One common theme between cultures: Delicious Food!
Welcome to Buen Provecho! (Enjoy your meal)

For many years, I've wanted to share with friends our delicious family recipies and with it, a little bit of our Latin culture, as well! In this community you'll find information about Latin American dishes and facts about different Hispanic cultures. You'll read about where dishes originated from and how they are often served. Yes, this community will mainly contain Central and South American dishes, for the most part, but ALL Reviews and Quick Tips are welcome! You may even read about what our Latino brothers and sisters are doing in the world today and what they have to say regarding topics such as language barriers in the U.S., politics and lifestyles. But more importantly, this community is to unite Latinos with other cultures and share a common interest: DELICIOUS FOOD! That said, I urge you to become a part of our community, share your opinions and have fun. All opinions are welcome -----> as long as they are respectful and courteous to other members and people; and lastly but not leastly:

Enjoy!!! Buen Provecho!

The Skin I Live In
Banderas is what drew me to this film. And he puts on an excellent performance here. In fact, all of the actors and actresses did well.   It is an excellent film too but it is still getting a -2 rating from me. The problem, as far as I'm concerned, lies in the scripting. It is psychologically repulsive and unhealthy as far as I'm concerned. Somewhat like The Black Swan which many …

PedroPedroPedro AlmodovarPedro Almodovar is one of my favorite directors and story tellers.  His newest film, The Skin I Live In once more proves his genius.  I don't want to say too much about the story because it would be wrong to give too much away.  But Almodovar never ceases to amaze me. His movies are always complex.  His characters are always off center.  And his …

Hello Lunchers!    Anyone interested in a little further insight into Pedro Almodovar's latest, THE SKIN I LIVE IN, should check out my interview with the film's star, Antonio Banderas.

The Debbie Lee-inspired Shrimp Ceviche Cook-off
Hello, Ceviche lovers (or soon-to-be!), you're in for a treat! Have you been wondering how to make this amazing appetizer? Well, you've come to the right place! Again, this dish is different in Central America than it is for South America and we will be using raw catfish, as opposed to shrimp or oysters.      For this Peruvian/Ecuadorian dish, you'll need the following …

The best thing about Argentinian Cuisine is their BBQ and what do they BBQ? Innards! I've a liking for those and this seals the deal for me :-) Argentinian food is hearty and great!!!

Cilantro
Cilantro is an herb that is a staple in both Mexican and Thai cuisines, two of my favorites.  It has a citrusy smell and is slightly spicy.  Perfect for topping your tacos (along with diced onions!)

Cilantro
Cilantro has, in the past has been considered a great addition to Latino and South American style cooking.    I would suggest that you try with your favorite recipies. I recently made Eggs Benedict and added some Cilanto, Basil and Green Chileover the top, not too much, but just enough.    This gave it a robust and zesty kick, but did not ruin the creamy texture …

Cilantro is a great addition to green smoothies. An excellent herb for heavy metal detox- if you have metal fillings, you will want to make this a regular part of your diet.

Lets say you don't know how to cook, or you know how to do a limited number of dishes.  (What I call the amateur with the "specialty."  I-can-cook-I-make-great-spaghetti-sauce syndrome.)  Lets say you've been faking it, but you really are not sure how to make poached eggs or good roast chicken.  What's your first step?       I have …

Not Your Mother's Microwave Cookbook: Fresh,
Not Your Mother's Microwave Cooking is part of the Not Your Mother's series by Beth Hensperger. She's written some excellent cookbooks and this one was no exception.      Most people use their microwaves for basic functions like heating up food, popcorn or defrosting, and this cookbook really unleashes all the possibilities that I never even knew were possible with …

I adapted this recipe from one in Heidi Swanson's Super Natural Cooking (shown below).  The bars are filling and full of satiating flavor.  They make an energy filled breakfast on the go or mid afternoon snack to get you through the day.

The Debbie Lee-inspired Shrimp Ceviche Cook-off
Devora Lee published a picture of her shrimp ceviche on Facebook (see the attached photo). There were two problems with this - at the time I saw the posting, I was starving and it seemed like a really good idea. Secondly, I'd already got dinner planned... three hours away!       She was good enough to publish her recipe, which is:      "I soaked …

Condiment Recipes
    This is Paula Deen's recipe for blender mayonnaise.  Prior to finding this recipe I had easily tried a dozen others.  None of them were just right.  Many were unnecessarily complicated, some to egg-y, others to watery and more with no taste.  Finally I was going through my "Lady & Sons, Too!" cookbook (show below) and came across this gem. It …

Not Your Mother's Microwave Cookbook: Fresh,
I love the Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Cookbook. When I saw that NOT YOUR MOTHER'S MICROWAVE COOKBOOK was available, I thought I'd give it a try. If Beth Hensperger can rescue the crock pot from cream of mushroom soup mix, she could entice me to actually cook in my microwave.    I used to live in the South, and I always wondered why women's magazines featured "Don't heat up your …

Not Your Mother's Microwave Cookbook: Fresh,
I use my microwave a lot but not the way this book want me to. I have to admit this book provides a good introduction to Microwave cooking techniques and it gives several useful tips on selecting and buying Microwave Cookware. The pictures of mouthwatering food look elsewhere. This book is very utilitarian in style.     Futhermore, the illustrations are meant mostly as technical …
Not Your Mother's Microwave Cookbook: Fresh,
Finally, a cookbook that really seems fit and easy enough for everyone to follow. When I came across this book, the whole premise of having recipes and dishes you could fix and prepare in the microwave was really appealing. Especially in the summer when cooking on a big stove can heat up your entire kitchen and living space, this book came in handy. What I like most about this cookbook is that it's …

One of my favorite treats to myself while visiting Walt Disney World is the desserts. They are all so delicious and I can honestly say I have not had a bad Disney dessert. With such variety and flavors this Top 10 list has to be one of the hardest things I ever had to do. Not to mention being on a diet is not helping.. Just about every restaurant has their own signature dessert..sometime 2 or …

Ready for Dessert: My Best Recipes
I'm not someone who cooks. When I registered for fine china, my own Mother asked me what I was going to serve on it, fast food? I love chocolate and I love dessert, so I figured that if any cookbook would tempt me to cook, this would be the one. I decided to try to bake a cake for Father's Day. Because I'm a chocolate fiend, I decided to try the Gateau Victoire, a flowerless chocolate cake!    I …
