Are you finding yourself bored during quarantine? Get the family together and spend some time trying out a new and fun recipe!. Everyone loves a good batch French fries; this recipe, however, for “Avocado Fries” is a healthier take on the classic and beloved snack, that everyone in the family will surely love! The best part is that it’s always Avocado season in Sayulita! I had not even heard of avocado fries until a couple of weeks ago; my husband and I happened upon them on the menu at one of the beach restaurants here in Sayulita! Being a foodie and because I love avocados, I just had to try them.

In my last column, I promised you a most delicious, easy to prepare, and even easier to eat, pan-roasted Dorado in a butter-lemon sauce. Did you know that Dorado is also called Mahi Mahi? This is the Hawaiian name for the fish, and the Spanish name is Dorado. This is a true Dolphin fish; not the dolphin mammal. I didn’t know this, so I used to never eat Dorado, but now it is one of my favorite fish to cook here in Mexico! All of the ingredients for this recipe are available here in Sayulita, and fresh Dorado is especially easy to find in our coastal beach town of Sayulita, full of fresh seafood.

Sayulita Public House is one of Sayulita’s only classic style “pub” restaurants and bars, where guests can always count on delicious and quality hamburgers, french fries, and craft beer or cocktails, as well as friendly, relaxed service. At Sayulita Public House, you get the sense that everyone knows your name, whether you are here in town visiting, or you live here permanently. I speak with the new owner, Dave Keen, about Sayulita Public House and changes/updates to his already loved and adored Sayulita staple pub.

I can’t believe that the holiday season is right around the corner! Here in Sayulita, the sun is shining, the weather is really warm, and snow will never happen. Nonetheless, the spirit of Christmas is everywhere around us- from the big firecracker booms that wake us up reminding us to go to church mass, to people getting together to share in the holiday spirit, to kitchens smelling of yummy cookies, cakes & appetizers, and to the drinking eggnog or icey prosecco.

*Dear readers- please note we tried to post this delicious recipe with you a few issues ago, but due to a technical error the link to the article was broken. We have fixed the error and are sharing it again for you to enjoy. Yesterday I bought a beautiful roasted chicken from the rotisserie pollo (chicken) shop in Sayulita. There are so many different recipes that one can use with roasted chicken. I love pollo, avocados, jalapeños, and love cheese— so I put them all together, and made "Aguacates Rellenos de Pollo con Queso”, or "Chicken Stuffed Baked Avocados with Cheese.” It is a simple, most delicious recipe that I just had to share it with you today! All the ingredients are available here in Sayulita.

Can you believe that Thanksgiving is coming up so soon? I love this holiday because it gives me the opportunity to make one of my favorite yummy desserts! Traditionally, Pecan Pie with Whipped Cream is always on my menu for Thanksgiving. I realize that many people are intimidated by making a pie crust; so I modified my recipe to make it super easy for you! You can make Pecan Pie Bars, with a delicious shortbread crust.
