Mexico City Day 2 – “Big Peso Spendin” – Pujol

Mexico City Day 2 – “Big Peso Spendin” – Pujol

Pawel and I have made a point of visiting a least one “Blockbuster” restaurant in major cities or while on vacation. Before the flight was even booked, I had my #1 Mexico City Restaurant picked out. I thoroughly researched and read many blogs and magazines. I asked local Mexican friends and foodies and they all […]

Eatin’ Good in “De Efe” (Mexico City)

Eatin’ Good in “De Efe” (Mexico City)

It is big, it elicits thoughts of pollution, danger, deadlock and adventure! It is….Ciudad de Mexico (Mexico City). At one time the city may of have been blanketed in smog and acted as the drug cartels “control center”.  However, the city has been cleaned up so to speak and the cartels have since moved on […]

My Little Foodies

My Little Foodies

I have met a variety of interesting people from all sorts of places, but each share a love of food and good company. Many of the folks I have met have also had their children tag along for their culinary experiences, some begrudgingly, but most, surprisingly, willing and even enthusiastic. Is this a matter of […]

Something Herbal

Something Herbal

I just love fresh herbs. I love having them around in glasses and small jars just as much as a bouquet of flowers (ok…maybe not that much as it is sweet to get the occasional flower or two or three…). I take care of them as if they are flowers by refreshing the water each […]

Poland & of course Pierogi

Poland & of course Pierogi

“My greatest gift is that I don’t have a Mexican grandmother, so I can look at all Mexican grandmothers as equal. If you grew up with this food, you’ll defend to the death the way your family makes a dish. So sometimes, with lots of experience, you can speak with a bit of a broader […]

Spring Break & Squash Blossoms

Spring Break & Squash Blossoms

Ok, so no, this post is not about girls getting wet & wild, sorry to disappoint, but it is about the season. It is about the fact that I live in a place that has a drastic change this time of year where we change from “high season” to “low season”. The wind dies down […]

The New Faces of Cozumel

The New Faces of Cozumel

Our island is changing and continues to grow. Just this past year they paved paradise and put in a Sam’s Club along with Bodega Aurrera (Mexican Walmart). To some this was/ is a negative as it sort of changes the landscape of Cozumel (sorry folks when you build the Sam’s amidst the concrete jungle downtown […]

Island Hoppers

Island Hoppers

What a week! I have finally made it through one of my busiest weeks for Cozumel Chef and I can now reflect on that wonderful weekend getaway my husband and I took a few weeks ago to Isla Holbox. When we decided to take this trip we knew that by mid-December we would need a […]

Taste of Playa – Just one bite isn’t enough

Taste of Playa – Just one bite isn’t enough

Last year at this time I was fairly new to the island and desperately looking for ways to immerse myself within the culinary community. I followed Mexican related food blogs and local foodies on Facebook seeking those that loved food as much as I did. One individual I noticed was closely related to an upcoming […]
