I clicked on your website because I just read on facebook that you won the best caldo de res recipe on rumbameats. It’s funny because I just made caldo de res yesterday, and I was looking for a recipe that would taste like I remember when I was growing up and as a teenager in Piedras Negras, Coah. The recipe I made was pretty good, still is lacking something, not sure what. I am going to find yours and try it next time. So far, I have enjoyed reading a bit about your trip to Monterrey and about the blue house La Fe?
Oh, thank you Patricia. I have the best chilhood memories of that big blue house of my abuelos. I always felt that way about the caldo de res when I prepared it in the passed. Nothing like my mom’s caldo, lol! I do know that the pressure cooker really added alot more flavor to the meat. Super tender. But low and slow cooking is good too! Thanks for stopping by.
Wow i throughly enjoyed reading all ur stories n recipes on Monterrey. My ex husband n i visited many times through our years together Monterrey. I have lics just like u have of my suegras kitchen in San Angel Nuevo Leon. Wow such wonderful n best moments of my life. I havent cooked my Mexican dishes for over 20 years but thanks yo u i feel the need n desire to enjoy those delicous aromas flavors found no where else but in Mexico. Thank u so much n God bless u.
Thank you Catherine. Writing and sharing about my family has helped me tremendously to cope with the loss of my parents. I don’t know what I would have done if I could not have expressed myself through the foods and the recipes the way I have up until now. I really don’t know. I refer to it as my kitchen therapy. Most times I cry my way through certain blog post, especially when they are recipes that remind me of home. Then the bonus part! You all vist my blog, many prepare the recipes and share with me the joy that it brings theirs family. I am beside myself most days reading these comments. How did I get so lucky to be in this position? I don’t know. I feel blessed for this reason.
