Beans and rice has been a major staple in our humble Salvadorian homes, like, well, forever. But when you marry these two together, refried in sizzling rendered bacon grease, grease that has been infused with onions and garlic and bell pepper, what you have, then, is the promise of a happy future, of delicious belly-filled days.

When my mother, a native Salvadoreña, would make her refried wedding of beans and rice, the aroma of sautéing onions and garlic would permeate the entire house and out the... Read More

Carnitas, crispy on the outside and oh-so tender and juicy on the inside, are often served as a simple meal with rice and beans and flour or corn tortillas. But more often than not they are requested in a Burro (or Burrito): wrapped within a warm flour tortilla with a generous spoonful of rice and beans; and when you ask, the additions of Pico de Gallo, sour cream and avocado. Why, it is enough to get you drooling all over yourself!

This tweaked carnitas recipe is done almost traditional. The meat is brined in orange juice and fresh orange slices, and root beer soda. The carnitas are... Read More

Many would say that this “salad in a sandwich,’ also known as Muffuletta, is very similar to a Hero, but let’s not be heard saying this out loud, we wouldn’t want to upset anyone.

The Muffaletta—a giant meat sandwich—was invented about 100 years ago, by Sicilian Immigrants that settled in New Orleans, Louisiana. But for this newly-twisted sandwich recipe, the tapenade has been given a modern taste, with the addition of pickled jalapeños added to the olive spread. And then this homemade sandwich is toasted on a Panini grill, for a fabulously wunderlicious sandwich that will have you humming... Read More

Grilled-cheese Monte Cristo came to mind when I picked and weighed in the last few good-looking heirloom tomatoes I gathered from my garden. Add a worthy spread of sweet, home-made tomato-strawberry jam between two slices of bread (such as Challah or egg bread), add a layer or two of ham and tender turkey, and then grill in butter to a delicious golden. Finish this delectable sandwich with a sprinkle of powdered sugar, cinnamon and cocoa.
