Old Farm Sausage Pasta...

Mexicans love pork. It features in most of our traditional feasts and celebrations and I use it a lot. I never paid much attention to my pork. I would buy it in the supermarket or the local butcher like everybody else, but a little over a year ago, I met this very nice lady, another food blogger like me, who came bearing the lovely gift of some home made sausages. The sausages looked different, very red and non-uniform in size. When we tried them a few days later we couldn't believe how tasty they were.

Pimped Up Frozen Paella

I don't get enough fish in my diet, why? Two simple reasons: I hate fish bones (they make me nervous) and I don't like fishy smells in the house (yes, yes, it's mad I know!); when I do get fish, I tend to go for fillets of cod (tail end so there's little or no bones), salmon or tuna fillets and every now and then I chance a Raywing or a red snapper. I also tend to feel guilty when buying fish because it's hard to know whether it was fished ethically or not! So for all these reasons, we don't get as much fish as we should and that makes me feel guilty!

Meeting Culinary Heroes...

I recently learnt the true meaning of the word 'starstruck'. I met my hero of heroes, Nigella Lawson, at a book signing in Dublin last month. I queued for about an hour and a half in the freezing cold just to get my book signed and to have a glance at the woman who made cooking sexy. I absolutely love her! Her books have provided the Ramirez-Foran household with many happy meals and countless friends have enjoyed the wonderful fruits of my working with the recipes in her books.
