Do you know why the French sandwich is called Croque Monsieur? The name comes from the French words croque ("bite”) and monsieur ("mister").
I made the most delicious crusty chewy bread today! As good or maybe even better than the “best” bakery artisan loaf I have ever bought! And sooo easy - only four ingredients that I always have in my kitchen. I challenge you to make this bread - even if you have never made bread before…I promise, it will be fantastic.
LIVE, LOVE, EAT

Are you trying to follow a low carb lifestyle? I am always googling and following low carb bloggers to find recipes for snacks that are low carb and delicious at the same time. Yesterday I came across a recipe for pizza roll ups that sounded easy and yummy -- just 4 ingredients, and low carb pizza roll ups with no flour of any kind!? I just had to try them; my very well-stocked Sayulita kitchen already had the 4 ingredients I needed.
A sandwich is a sandwich but a torta is… well, let’s just say that it’s nothing like the sandwiches you carried to school in a brown paper bag. Tortas are turbo charged layers of flavor packed inside some of the best sandwich rolls you’ve ever eaten.
I LOVE living here in Sayulita! There are always trucks driving by offering fresh vegetables, fruits, shrimp, fish, tamales, etc. Yesterday I heard a truck selling fresh fish, and I just had to see what I could make with it for dinner. A beautiful, fresh fish caught that morning was waiting to be made into a wonderful fish soup. I had the fish descaled by the seller, and for just $80 pesos, I had the base for my fish soup dinner! I had never made a fish soup before, but thought it would be fun to try. I decided to roast the fish in a foil packet to get as much flavor out of it as possible. You will love this recipe!
