• Chipotle 7-Layer Dip

    My husband can never remember that Memorial Day falls at the start of summer and Labor Day closes out summer.

  • Beef Blue Cheese Monte Cristo with Cherries

    A Monte Cristo conjures up special memories of my childhood, it’s a sandwich that my dad would often make me by special request or I would order on the rare occasion we dined out. It was a far cry from my daily PB&J at the time.  A traditional Monte Cristo features ham and melted cheese between bread that had been soaked in an egg-milk mixture and fried in the style of French toast (another of Dad’s specialties). Oh, and a topping of raspberry jam as a sticky-sweet finishing touch!

Yeah, yeah, Hatch green chiles may hail from Hatch, New Mexico, but we’ve adopted them with cult-like worship into our food culture.
