I love going down the ethnic aisle in the grocery store. There’s so much inspiration there. My latest grocery store endeavor left my pantry filled with the goodies I need to practice for my Cinco de Mayo festivities. Yea, I have a month to go but I need the practice. I want to make traditional Mexican dishes so I’m reaching out to some awesome Latin friends for those recipes.
I have a Latin background, with my father being Puerto Rican, but I want to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with true Mexican foods. I asked my friend, Julia, what some of her favorite foods were and the first thing she mentioned was tamales. I have never made tamales before, so when she told me it was a lot of work I kind of brushed it off. Let me just say, making homemade tamales is a lot of work!
I found everything I needed to make homemade tamales in the ethnic aisle. I even found a tamalera, which is basically a steamer used for cooking the tamales. It’s also great for seafood and canning – a nice investment I can be proud of. I also picked up a bag of tamale flour and just followed the directions on the back for that.
While the tamales did take a while to prepare and cook, the process wasn’t complicated. I’ll definitely be adding this to our Cinco de Mayo menu and hopefully bringing others in to help make them.
This is a great resources for Baked Ham Recipes. I will admit to loving ham. I can’t tell you how many times I have made a ham just so I can have the left overs. I
This is my Ham Butt recipe. The best thing is the butt is so cheap and it does taste good! This is just one of my easy recipes. I love to put the pineapples in between the layers when I cook the ham. I buy an already cooked version of ham. Then I heat it up it is about 10 minutes per pound. I use the juice from the pinapple and 1/4 cup of brown sugar to glaze the ham. I will tell you I brush on the glaze prior to cooking and then I place foil over the ham for the duration of the cooking process. It usually takes about 2 hours to reheat a ham. I get a large one because I just love ham leftover recipes. Like a great harvest salad or this great sweet and savory ham sandwhich recipe.

The Roasting a Turkey story is actually pretty funny. It was early in my marriage and we decided to have everyone over for Thanksgiving. I did what I used to do best you know back before I lived life on a budget. I walked into to Whole Foods and I ordered my Thanksgiving dinner. I picked the $300 option. I know fall over. I used to spend that kind of money when I worked. I also didn’t know how to cook anything so this was a great idea. I got the food I took it home and I put it in my garage. The garage was cold so I didn’t think this would be an issue.
It was about three hours before dinner and my dad asked why I hadn’t put in the turkey. I told him we just have to heat it. Then I went to check and the turkey actually needed to be cooked. It was a disaster. We didn’t eat until almost 8 at night. I can’t believe I didn’t know you had to cook the turkey. The flyer said ready for Thanksgiving it didn’t say you have to cook this. I was so angry why would i pay $300 for a turkey that wasn’t cooked. I will say when I called Whole Foods the next day they did refund 50% of my total and apologized for not being clear. I would like to show you that I did learn how to cook an exceptional turkey and it was on a budget. I got my turkey for $.59 so it was only $7.58.
