Croissant Croque Madame

Chorizo Quesadilla Huevos Rancheros

   Cheese. Queso Oaxaca, to be more specific. Also known as “Mexican melting cheese”. It’s a cross between a Monterey Jack and Mozzarella.  It’s a little salty, stringy, and melts so graciously. When living in Toronto, I was deprived of some authentic Mexican products. Here,

Pork Tenderloin with Brandy Mustard Sauce

I must apologize again. The past month has been another doozie. I’ve been flying around more than I’ve been home. It sounds fun, but there really is nothing like home. I wait for the moment that I walk in the front door and drop everything.
