Lettuce Fish Tacos


I woke up to a beautiful sunny day that transported me to a beachy place, so I prepared this refreshing lettuce tacos before it snows… again… tomorrow. They are light full of flavour and the lettuce gives a very nice crunch to them. The slaw is delicious with the pineapple, kind of tropical feeling.

This recipe is suitable if you are following a low-carb, low-fat, gluten-free or paleo diet.

Different kind of tacos!


Because Luis and my husband Ricardo are home and I know they LOVE mexican food, I’m preparing this meat recipe for tacos. It is very flavorful, comfort food perfect for the cold weather! This kind is pulled beef with new potatoes in fresh tomato sauce. Very easy prepared in the slow cooker so you can enjoy family time!

All you need to do is season the meat, put it in the slow cooker and pour blended tomatoes. Go to the movies, go for a hike, or watch football with your family while it cooks!

Serve it with some vegetables, avocado, rice or beans, and if you are brave enough, go ahead and try the serrano chili that gave its wonderful flavor to the meat!

Before Luis left


Well I am continuing with my children’s favorite dishes. What Luis likes the most is Mexican food! He loves any kind of “taquitos”. So last night before he left for school we had Pork Taquitos. Did I mentioned he is a soccer player? Yes, he plays for his school team, for a team in the city league and for an intramural team. So besides school, that keeps him very busy.

I like this kind of “taquitos”, because now that everybody is home, I don’t want to spend precious time in the kitchen, I rather be with them. So I prepared the meat before going to bed, in the morning I put it in the slow cooker and I can forget about it until dinner time! Isn’t that amazing? Because it slow-cooks, the meat is so tender, full of flavor with the mix of spices.

This is Luis, playing soccer of course
