Total Vision S'more Magic
This is a microwave s'more maker. You may be thinking, "But I can just stack graham crackers, chocolate, and a marshmallow on a plate and microwave them to make a s'more." And you would be right.
For Christmas Eve, my dinner companion and I decided to make a very special treat. This recipe was again, straight out of Rick Bayless’ cookbook: Everyday Mexican. We made seared mahi-mahi topped with fresh sautéed zucchini, drizzled with a rich garlic sauce and garnished with fresh squeezed lime.
To make this dish, my dinner companion first heated olive oil in a skillet under low and then turned the stove up to medium heat. I washed and prepared the zucchini by chopping it into ¼ inch cubes. He then seared the fish on both sides in the warmed skillet until the skin simply fell off.

This was a very simple dish, by definition. Though, when all the flavors blended together, this basic dish created quite a luscious sample of tastes for the palette on such a special night.
After having been eating yogurt that seemed overly sweetened and looks like goo, I wanted something heartier and less sweet yet satisfying so I trotted down to the local grocer to see if they had any good quality yogurt that I was looking for.
There it was – Zoi Greek Yogurt “Epic Taste – Fit for the Gods.” It was beckoning me to have a taste. (Cue heavenly melody.) Since I’ve never tried Greek yogurt before but have heard that it was supposed to be good for you, I picked up their honey flavored one just to check it out.
In my last two posts here on Hungry Blogger, I talked about how to make homemade lime cilantro vinaigrette that will make even the most basic salad ingredients delicious! I also talked about how to make authentic Mexican tortilla soup. The process really isn’t that hard at all and the result is amazing! In this post, I’m going to talk about how we made homemade tomatillo salsa. These are all recipes from Rick Bayless’ cookbook: Everyday Mexican.
This past weekend, I had the most delicious memorable authentic Mexican feast! I credit it to recipes from Rick Bayless’ cookbook: Everyday Mexican.

For a nice wine complement, we paired this delightful meal with a red French cabernet (black bottle pictured). The meal was truly a sample of aromas and tastes; my senses were inundated. The kitchen smelled delicious. This meal made for a definite highlight of my weekend.
The United States is among the most developed nations in the world, but over the course of the last years, we have had a large number of food safety issues—some of which have resulted in hospitalizations and deaths. Many pointed their finger at the FDA, who I believe has the responsibility of regulating the food and drugs we consume, and now the US Senate has passed legislation which will hopefully help make the food that we eat much safer for all of us.
