In an attempt to catch up, I need to go back to August which just seems forever ago. It's difficult to reconcile writing about the summer while listening to John Denver & The Muppets singing Noel. But this cookbook needs to be shared.
Tara was excited to cook from this book or rather show us how delicious it is. I made the green beans with toasted pistachios and a vinegar sauce. I'm a big fan of having something green at every meal.
This dish is incredible. Tara made Shredded Pork in Ancho-Orange Sauce and I still think about this dish. She prepared the guacamole, salsa, queso and limes to eat with the tacos but they were not needed. The pork had so much flavor in the sauce.
I made the Blissful Corn Torte which was sweeter than I like my corn bread. Apparently, it's a really good breakfast treat (as written in the book).
Jocelyn baked this great key lime pie and May the Mexican cookies. The cookies were nice because there wasn't too much sugar but lots of dark chocolate. Overall, this is a book I'd appreciate investigating further. We all agreed that the pork won the night.
