I have a good friend who always says, “It’s happy hour somewhere in the world.”  LatinoFoodie loves that care-free spirit. When all the work is done and you’ve braved the traffic home, there’s nothing better than to kick off your shoes (or heels) and enjoy a tasty libation.  It’s Memorial Day Weekend. Time to relax and enjoy. We are featuring an easy to make margarita. Ah, the margarita. Citrus juices, tequila, ice. Pure heaven. You really can’t go wrong. You’ll probably be seeing many margarita recipes featured on LatinoFoodie in the days and months to come. Here’s a recipe for one made with grapefruit.


Grapefruit Margarita

 Total time: 10 minutes

 Servings: 4

Wedge of lime

 2 teaspoons coarse margarita salt

 14 ounces ruby red grapefruit juice, with pulp (about 3 medium grapefruits)

 1 ounce lime juice

 5 ounces reposado tequila

2 ounces triple sec

 4 slices grapefruit or twists

 1. Run a lime wedge halfway around the rims of four margarita glasses and dip into salt. Set aside.

Maple Cream Easter Eggs

by Femme Fraîche March 20, 2016

Maple Cream Easter EggsEvery year when I was a kid, I could count on two things in my Easter basket – marshmallow eggs and maple cream eggs. Each served different purposes. The maple cream Easter eggs were my favorites and what I squealed over even more than finding plastic hidden eggs that held a dollar bill or a tiny toy. The marshmallow eggs were nothing I ever fancied and always found their way into the freezer for...

Salsa Casera Recipe – Super Hot and Delicious

by Stephen Chavez March 12, 2016

Salsa Casera or House Salsa is one of the simplest and most flavorful salsas that brings a robust heat and a smokey flavor from the charred tomatoes and chile peppers. Beware! I like heat and so this recipe has one dried Scorpion pepper added to the mix. Scorpion peppers are one of the hottest chiles in the world, with a mean heat of more than 1.2 million Scoville heat units (SHUs).

Mushroom and Kale Egg BakeAdulting is hard stuff. Sure, there are the big things like taking care of kids or parents, unexpected car and home repairs, dealing with awful work situations, but sometimes the littlest things feel the most difficult. These days, one of my biggest dilemmas is finding what to feed myself in the mornings that is convenient, nourishing, and so tasty I’ll be psyched to eat it a few days a week. This...
