Lime Crema

This is a quick post and a bit of a choose your own adventure: for the delicious topping Lime Crema. This is a fresh alternative to just plain sour cream, which you can make the hard way or the easy way. I'm not going to lie to you, I always go easy - you get the delicious zippy taste without having to wait 24 hours. Because ain't nobody got time for that.

Indochine Banh Mi

Mmm Bulgogi Beef

When you're known around town as "that crazy girl that only eats tacos," people are always eager to talk shop. Mostly I field questions, but every once in a while I get a recommendation. Before she left us for the Great Ontario Way, my dear friend Kim gave me quite possibly the best heads up I've ever received: the best tacos in Halifax are at a Vietnamese takeout joint called Indochine Banh Mi. I'm not sure what that says about Halifax, but I can assure you that Kim was 100% correct. So come along with me as I rhapsodize on the amazingness that is the Bulgogi Beef Taco.

Carne Guisada

This one is going out to all my American friends (and foes). I know Thanksgiving is coming up for you guys sometime soon-ish, so I made these comfort food tacos just for you. No, they're not made of turkey - this is a traditional beef stew with potatoes added in for maximum starch enjoyment. It could easily be made in a slow cooker, but I expedited the process and cooked it in a pot for about 2 hours. You can cook it for longer - your beef will get nice and soft - but I think you get the same great taste with this method. So be thankful for tacos (and your family or whatever)
