Mexican Cookery, Authentic Mexican, Frida's Fiestas, Nourishing Traditions and a Bread cookbook (for good measure)

A few weeks ago a dear friend said to me, as dear friends do: “There’s already a bazillion food blogs in the universe . . . [it’s like] spitting into the wind.”

How encouraging.  Sigh.  My feelings were a little hurt but she had a point.

So I haven’t been posting, I’ve just been cooking and eating, conversing and contemplating while slowly surrendering to a passion that is all too obvious…

Every trip to the market produces a basket full of blue corn tortillas, mangos, beans, bunches of cilantro and epazote. The comments I leave on my fellow food bloggers’ recipes say things like, “Yum! Pepitas [pumpkin seeds] in a cake! I think pricking this cake then drizzling it with sweetened condensed milk+ evaporated milk+ heavy cream would make for a unique rendition of TRES LECHES…” And if you’ve been following Gabriela’s Kitchen you’ve noticed that more than half the recipes are Mexican or Mexican inspired.

So here you have it:

Gabriela’s Kitchen: Authentic Mexican and Latin Inspired Home Cooking

For semi-gourmet and simply delicious recipes I direct you to sites like the kitchn, 101 Cookbooks and Smitten Kitchen. They do what they do oh-so-well!

But if you are looking for a little traditional Latin spice, please allow me to share my profound love for  the simple depth of Mexican and Latin Inspired Home Cooking as I re-launch this site in the next few weeks.

As always, we love dinner guests and we hope to see you soon!  xogabriela

      Thanks for the encouraging words and support Rebecca! The “wind spitting” comment” although discouraging helped me focus my efforts- we all need a critic, right?

      Let us know if you’re ever in NYC, we love having PO dinner parties for out-of-town guests. xogaby

    first — there are never enough food blogs! Food and cooking are such intimate things and they way people think about and create food is often so different and fascinating!

    second — A Latin and Mexican cooking is awesome — and I can’t wait to read more!!

    • gabriellemarielopez says:

      Thanks Alison…I definitely agree with you. I guess my intimate creations are Mexican and Latin inspired… it feels good to have “direction.”

    What a great idea! Latin cooking is our favourite so I will be looking forward to following along.

    i’m excited! i think this is a cuisine that serves both jonah and mine’s diets fairly well, or is certainly easily adaptable. we both love the flavor profiles (although that boy is a wimp when it comes to heat/spice). i look forward to the re-launch!
