Spiked Horchata Latte Cocktail

This recipe is a sort of hybridized food souvenir. The nut milk is inspired by G&B Coffee in LA, who uses a similar milk to make their now legendary Almond Latte. Soon after, I was at Gracias Madre and had their Spiked Horchata cocktail made with mezcal and plenty of spice. Convinced that the sum would be even more incredible than the parts, I began tinkered until I came up with this Spiked Almond Hochata Latte cocktail.

Los Cabos Mexican Summer Salad

We could all use a little more Mexico in our lives. Its bold colors, warm hospitality, and lilting breezes, and the food — let’s not forget about the comforting complexity that is Mexican food. So, I took a vacation with my family down in Los Cabos, Mexico. Though I’d like to say I ate healthy, I more or less acted like a sloth. But if I were being healthy? I would have eaten something like this salad — all the flavors of Mexico toasted and roasted and tossed together but a far cry from a chain-restaurant tostada.

{Escabeche} Hot Mexican Pickled Carrots

All you have to do is meet Delilah Snell and you’ll likely be as convinced of her awesomeness as I am. When we met, it was quite clear Delilah and I were equally food obsessed and we quickly became close enough that she was willing to share the recipe for these Mexican-style pickled carrots.
