Do you like Mexican Food? Well, I LOVE Mexican food! And what better excuse to eat and drink Mexican all than Cinco De Mayo

I am going to shamelessly admit that I am going to be hogging all day long. I have already picked my Favorite recipe sources though. Thought I will share them with you!

1. Over 43 Top Mexican Recipes at Food Network

2. A very long list of Mexican at Betty Crocker

My favorite though, was this Mexican Margherita

3. OMG! Churro Truffles

4. Bite size Taco Cookies

5. Authentic Tomatillo Shrimp Ceviche

There! The top 5 links I am gonna be checking on for all the food I plan to make for Cinco De Mayo! I have added a few more links in my Pinterest board – You should take a look!

And I have a special recommendation. I have been using Dofino Havarti Cheeses quite a bit lately and I have to say I am slowly falling in love with them! What’s not to love really? They come light on the pocket as well (I am talking about a Discount coupon here!)

Ok. Enough talking now. Back to the Kitchen! There is a feast that needs preparing!


Boring Breakfast no more!

You know what I realized? Our meal system is faulty! Why would the most important meal of the day aka the Breakfast also be the most rushed meal of the day otherwise huh? Makes no sense right? It’s such an ordeal to make the kids eat the same cereal or oatmeal or PB&J sandwich day after day. Forget the kids. I am so bored with breakfast that I am skipping straight to lunch these days. So today, I made a decision to myself! Boring Breakfast No More!

Here’s what I am planning to try out this week. 6 Breakfast recipes that are interesting and also Kid friendly!

1. Make Your Morning Muffins

Are you already drooling? I know! This one has that effect! These mini muffins found at Modernmom are packed with energy and have just a hint of cheese that makes it all the more yummalicious! I used Dofino Havarti Cheese since I had a discount coupon for it! And it worked perfectly! I say this is a MUST TRY!

2. Pumpkin Pie Pancakes.

Halloween special Pumpkin Pie Pancakes. Good for non Halloween days as well!

This Betty Crocker recipe has every ingredient to become the family favorite and it takes just 20 minutes to make! Doesn’t look like that though right?

4. Corn Parathas

This is me getting a little experimental with other cuisines. Corn Paratha recipe by Tarla Dalal, a masterchef from India. These look very simple to do, and is power packed for a busy day. PS: Has a little hint of cheese in it as well!

5. English muffin Egg Pizzas

Oooh! How lovely do these egg pizzas from Real Simple look? You could use wheat bread instead of the English muffin, and go a little generous on the cheese unless you are dieting!

6. Breakfast Pie

I am keeping this recipe from Taste Australia for the weekend, so we can make it together and ravish it together. I am sure I am going to dream about this every night till then though!
