I have been craving Mexican food for a little while. This long weekend gave me some time to be able to stay home, cook, bake and photograph my food. How happy this woman is!!!
Mexican is screaming "Taco" !!!! Yeah I am going to make a Tacos' night. I have pork tenderloin in my fridge so let's make it ...... How am I going to cook it ? Well, let's go back to last month. When I wrote about chocolate, I mentioned something about cocoa-spice rub. The depth of flavor comes from chocolate, Anho, Chi-pole and corainder. All kinds of flavors make this a home run Seared Pork tenderloin with Mexican cocoa-Chile spice rub. Including if you have Cabernet or Shiraz at home, both would pair well with this " Roasted Mexican Pork tenderloin with cocoa spice rub".
Sweet and tangy go together well. " Mango Salsa" , sweetness makes this taco more balanced.
What we simply call the home run taco: depth of flavor, tangy and creamy slaw, sweet from the mango and spicy from the cocoa rub.
It is Spring .... Fresh Vegetable are here.
No Jar for Salsa. It is easy and simple to make- only 6 ingredients.
- Salsa with tortilla chips recipe
- Seared Pork tenderloin with Mexican cocoa-Chile spice rub recipe
- Orange pound cake recipe
- Spring Fresh fruit salad recipe
- Homemade Ginger Ale recipe
- Mango Salsa
- Cabbage slaw
- Pickled jalapeno
- Queso Fresco
- Lime wedge
- Corn tortillas
Creamy and tangy with fresh cilantro!!!!!! Greek yogurt keeps this light and healthy.
Not too much cream because I need some room for creaminess from the guacamole.
Last but not least "Homemade ginger Ale"
This infused ginger syrup makes a great home run ginger Ale and cocktail. The outcome is a touch of spiciness from ginger with great warmth after the taste.
Orange & lemon juice in the cake make this citrus yogurt pound cake more balanced. The orange juice glaze gives sweetness to the cake. I also added fresh fruit salad compote along with Pound cake. Sweet, tangy and fresh mint mixed it all well with "Orange pound cake". It feels like Spring in my mouth.

"You love someone, you open yourself up to suffering, that's the sad truth. Maybe they'll break your heart, maybe you'll break their heart and never be able to look at yourself in the same way. Those are the risks. That's the burden.Like wings, they have weight, we feel that weight on our backs, but they are a burden that lifts us. Burdens which allow us" Bones
