Baking is science and I don't like formulas, but cooking is art and anything goes...and the simpler the better. It's all about less time at the stove and more time at the table. With a forty year passion for food I'm excited to share what I do in the kitchen nearly every day.

Pretty much anything tastes better when you put it on a fried corn tortilla, and with a bit of salsa and melted cheese you can’t lose.  Heat up an eighth of an inch of vegetable oil in a frying pan, slide in a whole corn tortilla, give it a minute, flip, and when slightly brown remove and drain on a paper bag.  Last night I created tostada magic from leftovers with some thinly sliced pork, caramelized onions, chopped basil, salsa verde, and a slice of mozzarella by stacking them in that order on a cookie sheet and reheating until the meat was warm and the cheese melted.  You don’t have to get that fancy, the tortillas are just as good topped with your favorite salad, scrambled eggs, sliced sweet potato, or can of beans….but that pork combo was pretty amazing!
