Daring Bakers' Challenge: Croissants

The Daring Bakers go retro this month!  Thanks to one of our very talented non-blogging members, Sarah, the Daring Bakers were challenged to make Croissants using a recipe from the Queen of French Cooking, none other than Julia Child!

Inspired by our recent trip to Mexico to visit with a long time friend and my love of Mexican food, I made some enfrijoladas.  The recipe came from a book my friend owns called “Mexico The Beautiful Cookbook”.  It’s filled with amazing pictures of authentic recipes from the different regions of Mexico.  I copied many of these wonderful sounding recipes for future potential dinners.

A Garden In Mexico

We spent the last week vacationing in a small village in Mexico.  We went to visit a long time friend who lives there.  This is her beautiful courtyard garden.  I didn’t take my Nikon so these pictures were taken with a Lumix pocket camera.   They don’t do the garden or the flowers justice.
