Meanwhile, I've been dishing up a few missed favorites at home while my family and friends back in Texas get hit by hurricane Ike. From what I've heard, even Austinites have been affected by the hurricane. For those of you back home, I hope you're staying dry and safe and I'm keeping y'all in my thoughts!
Taco soup. Usually, I make this with pinto beans, but red beans worked fine. I can never get enough of this soup!
I finally made cheese enchiladas with my corn tortilla and cheddar cheese finds. They turned out pretty good, but the tortillas were so big! Next time, I'm making beef enchiladas. The rice wasn't nearly as good as mom's is, so I've still got a lot of tweaking to do on that.
I made migas, ranchero sauce and gratin for dinner with my leftover corn tortillas. The ranchero sauce was so simple and seriously delicious. Gui and I finished an entire casserole of potatoes gratin. It was a surprisingly great meal!
I made apple coffee cake again. I tried to get away with using less butter this time, but it turned out less coffee-cakey. It was still pretty good, but next time I'm keeping it buttery.
