About this Cook
A California girl, but now living and teaching English in Puebla, Mexico. I'm really finding it a challenge finding some of my favorite ingredients here, for example molasses, tahini and tempura sauce. (Go figure... tempura batter is easlily found everywhere, but not the sauce!!!) The upside is, at the mercados (outdoor markets) an abundance of fresh fruits, vegetables & herbs, & hormone/antibiotic-free meat, chicken & eggs can be had for a fraction of the cost as in the U.S.!

Grilled Spicy Lamb Burgers
This was quite possibly the best hamburger I've ever eaten in my life! Instead of pita I used regular hamburger buns (grilled, of course!), adorned with lettuce and tomato-- but I added grilled, carmelized onions...OMG! As with so many other ppl, I couldn't find ground lamb in any of the supermarkets here in Puebla, Mexico; but I went to the local "mercado" where everything sold there is the absolute freshest, and asked the butcher to grind some lamb for me. I made a bunch of these burgers, wrapped them individually and stuck 'em in the freezer for an awesome quick meal whenever!

Tea Cookies I
This is my all-time favorite cookie and make them for Christmas every year. This taste of this cookie is very similar to shortbread cookies, but softer and almost melt in your mouth. I don't know what went wrong with the other reviewer's batch, but I doubled the recipe and made these exactly as the recipe calls for, and these turned out PERFECT! There are a couple of things you might be tempted to do with this recipe that you have to refrain from doing. Don't make the cookies too large; they will grow and expand while baking. Also, you may be tempted to bake these too long because they won't look done, but that's the way they are supposed to look. They are NOT supposed to be brown at all. In this particular batch in the photo I used pecans instead of walnuts, but they are sumptuous either way.
