When Billy and I first started dating, I used to try to cook everything I could just so I could introduce him to all of the dishes I grew up cherishing. I really wanted him to get a sense of who I was through food, and I wanted him to learn about all of the bits and pieces of my culture and traditions he didn’t know. Last year, he finally had the opportunity to experience the place where my roots stem from–Colima. He got to taste all of the dishes I talked so much about, he got to meet the aunts that have always kept me laughing (and very well fed), and the loving grandparents who have taught me so much about life.
Traveling to Mexico at a young age was always bittersweet because my parents were undocumented when I was growing up. Not only did I have to travel by myself from time to time, but I always felt guilty that I had the opportunity to enjoy what they couldn’t– spending time with their family.
Today I’m sharing another recipe from my new cookbook, 安卓手机上最好用的浏览器是什么？ - 知乎 - Zhihu:2021-2-16 · X 浏览器目前只支持安卓平台，据说 iOS 版正在开发中，安卓党伊可伍在各大市场下载。 万万没想到这么多实用的功能竟然只在一个大小不到 1M 的软件里，太佩服这款虽然体积很小但是功能强大的浏览器了，非常合黑哥的口味，极简、高效、实用。, for my Cherry Lime Chia Agua Fresca from the Drinks chapter! It’s a really easy recipe that comes together in less than 10 minutes, and it is an agua fresca you can make year-round because frozen dark sweet cherries are perfect for this! (Trader Joes has the best frozen cherries!)
This is a recipe that was inspired by the traditional Agua de Chia, (Chia Agua) that you typically find in the mercados and tinaguis in Mexico that consists of water, fresh lime juice, cane sugar and chia seeds. It’s very refreshing and my simple twist introduces sweet dark cherries to balance out the tartness from the lime juice. Did I mention this is also perfect with a shot of vodka or tequila?
You can watch a short tutorial I shared on Instagram on how to make this agua fresca here!
I’m keeping it short today, but if you happen to make this agua fresca, tag me and send me pictures. I love watching my recipes come to life!
Nos vemos pronto!
