Hola! I know I've been away for the last 2 months, but I just want to tell you that I'm alive, and no I was not too lazy to cook or write, I just didn't have time...  The reason? México!

I was lucky enough to spend 2 months with my husband, family and friends back in México, in my beautiful hometown, Monterrey. We traveled, relaxed and of course, ate a lot of tacos ;)

I have a lot of recipes that I made and that I'm excited to share with you, I just thought I needed to justify my 'abandonment'. Luckily, I have great pictures to show you, especially of the amazing food that we missed and were able to taste again. I have to say the pictures are not the best focused or have the best quality, but I promise you'll get hungry just by seeing them... I do now.

So obviously, our trip started here, with tacos! We had some fish tacos:

Also homemade ones:

Here's one of my favorite dishes: Enchiladas Suizas. They're like rolled up chicken tacos topped with salsa verde, cream, cheese, refried beans and guacamole on the side. Yum!

My husband got used to waking up with this amazing Chilaquiles, made of course by me. Chilaquiles are really simple, just fried tortillas with beans, homemade salsa, cheese and cream.

We went to a restaurant that I will always recommend to tourists visiting Monterrey. The name is La Catarina and it serves gourmet mexican food. There you can experiment dishes that are made for those brave ones who are not intimidated by unusual ingredients, like chapulines, which are these little insects that are seasoned, cooked and eaten in tacos. Who was the brave one? My husband of course!

We have the freshest Shrimp Aguachile, which is something like a lime-cooked shrimp ceviche with fresh vegetables, peppers and some other delicious seasonings.  

And besides the delicious food, we also got to travel a little...

We went down to the 'Sin city' and spend some time (... and money haha) in the beautiful casinos. We enjoyed the nightlife of the city and had a great time.

And of course, we couldn't leave without experimenting some more of my beautiful México. My husband took me to Los Cabos (How can I not love him, right? haha) which is a dream place to go, especially for couples... Oh my, that's what I call relaxing days.

Look at the beach...

And the Infinity Pool...

And my view from it (Of course with a fresh Coconut as my drink!).

My husband got obsessed with this bird (A.k.a. Tucán haha)

And the beautiful view from our room:

Afterwards we returned to Monterrey just for the last days with the family. We still continued being amazed by the food, of course!

And last but not least, I gotta brag about the great markets that we have in México, and of course the variety of fresh peppers, which I'd love to have here in Germany everyday.

It was a great time with our loved ones, we got to relax, 'charge batteries' and now we're back home feeling pretty awesome to get back to our regular days. I'm excited to have my red kitchen back, lots of recipes to cook and share with you my readers. 

Hope you liked the pictures and maybe I convinced you to go to México on your next vacations ;)
