Doña Lupe’s Kitchen

I've been a little busier than usual lately launching my own cooking website and trying my hand at writing recipes. It's hard because then I actually have to think through the process while I'm cooking. It's also a little weird trying to figure out measurements because I never measure. I'm finally getting it though and having a lot of fun in the process. Cooking is such a huge part of my life and my history - it ties to so much I do that I wanted to share it.

On the website you'll find recipes, family stories and history, traditions, experiments and much more. You'll meet my family and friends, attend a tamalada and go on quests for ingredients. We eventually are going to have video instructions, so stay tuned.

The first few recipes are up and more are coming.

The link is here. Welcome!

Love your new cooking site. I posted a recipe today that reminds me of our time in New Mexico--a Green Chile Chicken Stew. It's not nearly as authentic as your recipes, but my husband craves the green chiles and I had to do something!

Looking forward to your hosting Poetry Friday tomorrow!

Thank you! I'm going to swing by and take a look at that recipe, it sounds yummy and a lot like a recipe I know of.

I know of a green chile, potato recipe...my grandfather liked potatoes and my grandmother would cook them in tomatillo salsa for him with strips of green chile. They are really delicious. I'll dig up the recipe for you if you're interested.

I can't wait to see what you come up with for Poetry Friday!
