To say I have a weakness for cookbooks is an understatement of gigantic proportions. Was by Costco the other day, when I spied Rick Bayless " More Mexican Everyday. I just had to have it. But I have a self imposed moratorium on buying more cookbooks.... It has to meet some criterias.
My rationales for the book: I love that he has starter preparation /marinade, which he calls his secret weapons. I love making my own seasoning versus buying store bought ones with additives. Hey, he also had a whole chapter on using rice cooker for his Mexican rice dishes. I MEAN, HOW COULD I SAY NO to this book. Happy, happy is the owner of the book. I look at it almost everyday lately.
So far I have made the Green Chili Adobo (Adobo de Chile Verde) and the Roasted Garlic Mojo (Mojo de Ajo Asado). It was 11:30 p.m and the smell of whole cloves of garlic and green serrano chilis slow roasting in the pan filled the house. Yummy to the X degree!
