A Little About Me

New York, New York
As a newly married woman, it has become my mission in life to learn how to cook. Gone are the days of picking up sushi and ordering curries. In order to jump-start my education, I enrolled in the Institute of Culinary Education's Fine Cooking I course where I learned the basics, from roasting to boiling to mousse-making (ok, maybe not that basic)! I've attempted to replicate some recipes - somewhat successfully- and create a few of my own. This blog is for friends and foodies and is intended to document my cooking adventures (and occasional fiascoes). Enjoy the pictures and bon appetite!

Wastin Away Again in Margaritaville

Though not Mexican, I love a great Cinco de Mayo party .... and no party would be complete without an icy cold margarita! In honor of the approaching Mexican Independence day, i'd like to share a delicious cocktail recipe inspired by my aunt's classic version. Whether you're throwing a party or making yourself a cocktail at home, this drink will not disappoint!

1/2 cup tequila
1/4 cup triple sec
1/2 cup frozen margarita mix concentrate
ice (enough to fill blender half way)

Place all your ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth! Add more tequila, or mix, depending on how strong you like your margarita. Dip your margarita glass in lime juice and then into a plate of salt. Garnish with a slice of lime, put on a Mexican sombrero, and enjoy the drink the way my sister is doing in the picture below!
