A refreshing Havana-inspired rum drink. For when you're expecting Hemingway over, or just having a barbeque on a nice summer day.
Big M's Spicy Lime Grilled Prawns
Succulent and moist grilled prawns. Serve with salad, potatoes, and bread. Enjoy!
Key Lime Cream Pie
Flavorful pie named after key limes, found in the Florida Keys. Garnish each slice with whipped cream if you like.
Mesclun and Mango Salad with Ginger Carrot Dressing
Very simple to make. Great on a hot day and when you want something refreshing. The dressing adds an Asian twist.
The Real Mojito
This is an authentic recipe for mojito. I sized the recipe for one serving, but you can adjust it accordingly and make a pitcher full. It's a very refreshing drink for hot summer days. Be careful when drinking it, however. If you make a pitcher you might be tempted to drink the whole thing yourself, and you just might find yourself talking Spanish in no time! Tonic water can be substituted instead of the soda water but the taste is different and somewhat bitter.
Moscow Mule Cocktail
This cocktail's origin has nothing to do with Moscow or mules, but after a few sips of this vodka, ginger beer, and lime concoction, no one will care.
The Perfect Margarita
Mastering the margarita requires a certain amount of practice, but once you dial-in your perfect ratio, it's a really easy cocktail to replicate. The classic recipe is 3 parts tequila, 2 parts triple sec, and 1 part freshly squeezed lime juice, and you should probably start off pretty close to that, but my personal favorite proportions are 4-3-2.
Key Lime Pie VII
This recipe uses condensed milk and sour cream. Fabulously easy. . . a summertime favorite! If you have time, a homemade graham cracker crust is better! Garnish with whipped cream and thin slices of lime if you like.
Corn in a Cup (Elote en Vaso)
This is Mexican street food at its finest. Anytime I visit El Paso or Mexico the craving of elote en vaso steps into high gear. Now anytime I crave this I whip it up at home, except I make it fancy by serving it in a pretty glass instead of the traditional Styrofoam® cup. No matter how you serve it the taste is sweet, crunchy, fiery, and juicy. This is a very loose recipe. Feel free to adjust the proportions of lime juice, crema, cheese, and spices to taste!
Avocado Soup with Chicken and Lime
Thin strips of chicken breast are simmered in broth with jalapenos, onion, garlic and lime and then combined with avocado and topped with crisp corn tortilla strips in this spicy soup.
