Cinco de Mayo Enchiladas - Pamela Style!

I always celebrate Cinco de Mayo by setting out my much loved Mexican painted wood trays and my sweet little Mexican pottery creature colletion. 

I have several trays and quite a few birds (and one frog) - all rescued from thrift shops and garage sales over the years.  I can't bear to leave them sitting unhappily in those musty places where they are not appreciated.  I have to give them a good home!  Just HAVE to!

Pumpkin! - Easy as Pie!

It is pumpkin harvest time!  Meet my pumpkin harvest!  My one and only pumpkin! The perfect size for a pumpkin pie!

Pumpkin pie is the EASIEST pie to make!  Simply whisk together a few ingredients with  pumpkin puree, pour into a pie shell and bake!   ANYONE, armed with a whisk, bowl, and a pie plate (with home made or ready-made pie crust) can make a pumpkin pie! 

Apple Pie Secrets Revealed!

Recipe!  And apple pie secrets!! 

Who doesn't swoon over the heady fragrance of an apple pie baking in the oven?

And since we are right in the middle of apple season (in the Northern hemisphere),  what better way is there to welcome fall than by baking an apple pie! 

Making the filling is very easy - remove the skin and core, slice thinly, stir together with a few simple ingredients, place the mixture in a pie shell and bake!  If you haven't yet learned to make pie crust, there are  ready-made pie crusts on your supermarket shelves.

Green Chile Harvest - Roast and Freeze You Own

Green Chile picked by me!

ROAST GREEN CHILE now, at the peak of the harvest, for use all winter.  If you can't get them at your local markets or farms, you can order them from the world famous New Mexico green chile growers, Hatch Chile Express.

Blueberries!

My sweetie in the garden fixin' breakfast! Blueberries! Very, very healthy food! Easy to freeze! Fun to pick! Yummy to eat!

I have said this before, but it bears repeating - if you have a u-pick farm near you, take advantage of the opportunity to spend a morning out in the fresh air picking your own produce and saving LOTS of money. And I mean LOTS!
