Mexican Hot-Chocolate Cookies

Mexican Hot-Chocolate Cookies

My friend Jill made Mexican Hot-Chocolate Cookies as part of a December cookie bake-off, and they sounded great. I had to try them. The cookies are basically chocolate snickerdoodles with cayenne mixed into the cinnamon sugar that coats the outside. This was a pretty straightforward […]

Mexican Chicken-Hominy Soup

I made Mexican Chicken-Hominy Soup for dinner last night. It was pretty easy to make. You can see the specific ingredients at the link above, but the recipe included chicken (which I’d cooked earlier in the week), broth, onion, jalapeno, garlic, and hominy. I garnished […]
