Muerte A La Pizza Falsa

Pizza is Americas favorite food. The first pizza was created in Naples, Italy in the year 1889. Called the Margherita in honor of the first Italian queen, this ¨first pizza¨ remained isolated in Naples for over fifty years until the 1940´s during WW2 when American soldiers discovered it and began requesting it. Meanwhile, in 1905, Italian immigrants in New York City opened Americas first pizzeria (Lombardi’s). In other words, though not ¨born¨ in the USA, pizza was given life in the USA, and then, from New York City, pizza began spreading back out to the rest of the world.

Homemade Vegetable Broth

Got Veggie Broth?

When was the last time you made Vegetable Broth? That´s what I thought. And how about canned or boxed broth on the shelf? Strike two. Got Veggie Broth? I didn’t think so! Broth is a key ingredient not just in Mexican food, but in so many recipes including soups, sauces, and rice dishes that I would find it impossible not to have at least one bottle in the fridge. Why settle for bouillon cubes when you can have homemade broth where you can be certain of all the ingredients?
