In Celebration of Cinco de Mayo, I asked my aunt, Maricarmen Lopez, to share some of her favorite recipes. Maricarmen is a catering chef and baker in Morelia, Mexico. Enjoy
Many people could quickly think of how they screwed up, but it took more thought and effort to come up with successes. Surprised?

Time to take down all of the Christmas decorations, and my very dry Christmas tree (that is shedding more than my cat). Honestly, this is my least favorite time of the year; right after Christmas, it tends to get really cold and snowy. However, one of my favorite things to make during this time is Chocolate Atole or Mexican Hot Chocolate.
It is that time of the year again. I have a Christmas Party or Dinner on almost every weekend. Do we go to my husband’s family Christmas party first? And then my parents? Which church do we go to celebrate Christmas? I have to buy presents…..
