You love Mexican food, right? You probably only get Mexican food at your local restaurant. Wouldn't you like to make your own at home? But, many of the recipes you have seen in the past are for foods either buried in some kind of industrial strength sauce and cheese, or call for ingredients no one in your area has ever heard of. Mexican cuisine is all about freshness and flavor, NOT sauce and cheese.
From the Kitchens of Pancho Villa is a cookbook about real cooking, by real people. There are over 230 recipes which come from 17 poor families in Colonia Pancho Villa, a residential area of Mazatlán, Mexico – you didn't think these recipes were from Pancho Villa himself did you?
This book shows you how to make classic, authentic Mexican food - fast, easy, delicious, and inexpensively. Some recipes can be prepared (start-to-finish) in 10-15 minutes! These cooks are all very busy people, some holding down 2 or 3 jobs while raising children and/or grandchildren. The recipes have to be easy, cook quickly, and be flavorful.
Sit back, put your feet up, take some time and read the history of each cook. Some are poignant while others are funny. One cook, for example, was turned out to live on the streets because his family could no longer support him, he was 11 years old! See what he did to survive. Each recipe has its own story to tell also, to tempt your taste buds or give you a glimpse into its past.
You will see (and make) recipes that you would never recognize as Mexican food; while others are definitely recognizable as such. Learn the differences in each type of chile and how to use them. Step by step instructions on techniques and descriptions for other, less common ingredients (plus substitutions if necessary). This book has it all!!!
In today’s economic climate, all these elements are welcome and often necessary contributions to daily meals. Eating out is expensive and often very unhealthy. With easy and inexpensive recipes at your fingertips, eating at home is your 'new' option.
There is only one state in the US which lives up to the epithet 'the best BBQ in the world', and that is Texas. But what is BBQ? Traditional grilling means cooking a piece of meat as quickly as possible with a high heat, but BBQ is exactly the opposite - this is slow cooking at low temperatures. The meat doesn't dry up, but remains super juicy and slow cooking renders even cheap and chewy cuts tender and tasty. When the heat source is charcoal, wood shavings or wood, you automatically get an unbeatable spice in the form of perfumed smoke. In Texas BBQ you will get to learn all these techniques. It is a simple step-by-step guide to how to make the perfect Texas-style BBQ at home, whether you have an ordinary outdoor grill or a professional smoker. Learn about what sort of wood is suited to a particular meat, exact grilling times and smoking temperatures. But first and foremost, you will discover how to achieve a perfect, tender, juicy and smoked 'pulled pork' or 'brisket'. There are even recipes for side dishes - everything from grilled corn salad, via three varieties of Mac'n'cheese to a cheesy chile con queso. Fabulous mouthwatering photos and a fun step-by-step design will have you rushing to the grill as soon as you can.
A modern gluten-free diet is a simple way to get back to feeling fit and healthy. In these pages you'll find delicious, approachable and easy recipes packed with vibrant flavours that you will be happy to share with friends and family. Your guests won't even realize that they are eating gluten-free! You or your child, partner, relative or friend may have been advised by a doctor to go gluten-free. At first, this may seem a huge challenge, but gluten-free eating needn't mean missing out on the treats that others take for granted. Cakes, breads, pastries and puddings are all within reach. Gluten-free ingredients are now readily available from your local supermarket or health food shop (or online) and can be transformed into fab suppers to share with friends and family, from pasta dishes, pizzas and pancakes to light, moreish cakes and deliciously crumbly pies and tarts. If you have just been diagnosed with coeliac disease, what you can buy and what you can cook may seem a little bewildering - you will need to avoid wheat, barley, rye, and any products containing them. If you have been diagnosed for a while you may feel as though you always cook the same dishes, week in week out. In this book you will find inspirational new recipes to eat alongside your old favourites, along with many tips and variations to create a wide-ranging gluten-free repertoire.
