  • Salsa De Molcajete

    Ever since I have been cooking my two culinary idols were Guy Fieri and Marcela Valladolid. They are the people that inspired be to get in the kitchen and start cooking. They also taught be to be proud of my cooking.  I learned from them that I should not be embarrassed and that cooking really is cool.  I have been fortunate enough to have met both of my culinary idols. I met Marcela a few years ago on the set of "The Kitchen". It is filmed not far from where I live so my ...
  • Compound Butter Breakfast Bar

    This week I have teamed up with Breakstone's butter to make your Passover breakfast even better!  In general, Passover food gets a really bad reputation. You know, eating just isn't as fun without everyone's favorite bread and legumes. I know I really miss them throughout the holiday. Now that I come to think of it, I am very emotionally invested in my carbs. You know what they say thought, “A cookie a day keeps the doctor away.” I’m pretty sure that's how it goes. Even though we ...
  • Diego’s Guacamole

    This past week I have been interning at my favorite restaurant, Salsa Metsuyan. It was super cool to see what its like to work in a restaurant kitchen. I spent a lot of time learning from one of their cooks named Diego. He really knows his stuff.

    Making your own hummus is way easier than you'd think! You can totally soak your own dried chickpeas to make hummus but it saves so much time just using canned chickpeas.

  • Salsa Verde

    Happy (Almost) Cinco de Mayo!  Passover has just ended and I'm already getting ready for Cinco de Mayo. It is only 5 days away! I like to celebrate the Mexican National holiday by eating Mexican food on the day and even all week long.  Quick Fact: Cinco de Mayo (Or "The Fifth of May") is celebrated because of the the Mexicans' victory against the French army at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.  I love salsa! It is one of my favorite ...
  • Mediterranean Beet Dip

    People tend to be afraid of cooking with beets. First off you need to roast them which takes time and they stain everything. There is no need to worry anymore! They now sell precooked beats that you can just pop into whatever you are making. This has made cooking with beets so much easier. You can dip pita chips, veggies, or really anything into it for a yummy snack. Click here for an amazing Crudités Bar with this dip. If you love the flavor (and color) of beets but don't ...
