Cinco de Mayo Recipes (Easy Crispy "Fried" Ice Cream) |

In the mood for some Mexican food?  Here are a few of my past favorite recipes with a little Mexican inspiration perfect for Cinco de Mayo or anytime you’re in the mood for a little Mexican!  I should warn you….Some of these pictures are OLD so please forgive my early photography skills.  The recipes are much better than the pictures look! :)

Are you thirsty???  How about something a little different like some Mexican Chocolate Shots

Before you have a drink though, how about a good breakfast to start off the day with this breakfast casserole Mexican Sausage & Cornbread Strata
