There’s nothing quite so comforting as the taste of these flavors… Peanut butter, honey, and bananas. When nothing else sounds good, when I’m sick, when there’s nothing else edible in our kitchen, I wrap these flavors up between two pieces of bread and enjoy tasty contentment. It’s been breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, afternoon snack, midnight snack, stress food, comfort food, “healthy” food. And now it’s a cupcake.
I adore the flavors of black beans and corn together. Add a little lime, garlic, cilantro, ample salt and pepper… Serve it on anything, and I’ll eat it. Devoured with chips? Done. Melted on top of a tostada? Yes, please. wrapped in a tortilla as a makeshift enchilada? Hellsyes. So really, what you see here could be consumed in half a dozen different ways. I just happened to go the quesadilla route today.
My experience with cocktails is minimal. I don’t like to experiment with recipes, because all past trials have tasted absolutely dreadful. And, I don’t really like the taste of liquor. At all. I wish I could be the cool kid that sips bourbon from a beautifully-etched tumbler glass, but no – I’d be much more content with a box of wine (don’t judge). That’s why I steal my cocktail ideas from talented people close to me. This time, it’s my friend April.
