One thought on “cinco de mayo recipe round-up

  1. Is it weird that i want to redo my cinco de mayo, b/c i was super not into it this year on the actual day, but after looking at this roundup? ALL I WANT IS MEXICAN THINGS.

    you included my cookies! i had forgotten about those but they’re soooo good. you know i haven’t made anything out of that book in forever, and that’s a shame. i should get on that. maybe i can squeeze some baking in between making all these other things? UGH SO HUNGRY.
