I wanted to create a recipe that is a gout friendly but still satisfies that roadside comfort food desire. Let’s face it a fried fish taco with good salsa is just amazing. So the first thing we need is a roasted tomatillo salsa and vegan crack cream sauce. Our fish […]
Have you ever made a sauce that was so good it would make an old work boot taste good? Well a few years back I did a collaboration with Diana of Sweet y Salado for Colombian style hot dogs. One of the things in the recipe was a cilantro sauce. […]
