Cinco de Mayo Recipes
Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner.
I wish I was throwing a party, but I’m not. Darn.
I hope that you are hosting or going to a party.
Here are a few Mexican-inspired recipes, some with vintage photography and all, to jumpstart your fiesta.

Are you celebrating or doing anything special for Cinco de Mayo?
I’m only 11 miles from the Mexican border here in San Diego so there’s always lots of parties, fiestas, and celebrating.
We aren’t doing anything “special” but all I have to do is walk outside and the taco stands, restaurants, and bars in my neighborhood will be in full tilt this entire week leading up to Saturday.
Channel thoughts of margaritas the size of your head and lots of shirtless men wearing fiesta hats and drunken revelry. Welcome to Cinco de Mayo week.
