My friend Simone from Simone’s Kitchen is a lucky girl! After she asked me to write a recipe for her blog during her vacation, I had so much inspiration that I came up with two recipes. I didn’t know which one I had to give it to her, so I sent her both recipes.
Last week you could already read about the Guacamole with beet and apple, but this week we’re giving you the recipe for a Mexican shredded beef salad.
And oh boy, this one came out delicious! For a while now this recipe was on my ‘to make’ list that I keep in my phone.
That is actually a list that is getting bigger rather than shorter, so hold on tight! There’s a lot of goodies coming because I want to make everything of course 😉
I got the idea for the Mexican shredded beef salad in a modern dinner here in LA. We have been there twice and I ordered their brisket salad both times. I am always a huge fan of trying something new but I can not guarantee that the next time I’m there I’m not ordering the brisket salad 😉
So buy a piece of brisket and go visit Simone’s Kitchen for my recipe for Mexican shredded beef salad.

This is seriously thé MOST DELICIOUS beef chili I’ve ever made. Not that I made chilli that many times before, but still.
I made this beef chili for a new edition of Food Truck Friday, and today we grab some dinner at

Oh Mexico! What I would like to come and visit you on vacation! But unfortunately we already used our vacation days this year for our visit to the Netherlands. Maybe next year then? Or should we go to Hawaii?
Last weekend I happened have to a very Mexican weekend in LA, filled of good food. And not Mexican food as I know
Los Angeles is such a great city, it has so much to offer and is really really big. So big that we haven’t seen everything yet so in the weekends we try to explore the city. I say try because we also have to go out for brunch on Sundays and go on hikes on Saturdays 😉
A few months ago we went to Silverlake on a sunny Saturday. We walked around, had some drinks and visited the cute boutiques.
And in one of those cute stores I saw it: the cookbook I wanted to buy for a long time but still hadn’t done it because of our move.
One of the great things of living in California are jalapeños. Spicy, green, fresh and fiery jalapeños.
Believe it or not but it is impossible to find fresh jalapeños in the Netherlands. Unless you grown them yourself of course. I was about to start a jalapeño project this year, but then P found a job in Los Angeles so we moved.
And I bought a jalapeño plant in LA! So I’m harvesting like crazy now, and we have to eat a lot of spicy Mexican food.
Sometimes you know you need to step down for a moment.
Just take a step back and rest or change something in your way of living. After all these hectic months of saying goodbye to our live in Amsterdam en figuring out how living in Los Angeles works I finally feel we have settled in.
Life is never boring at the West Coast, unless you lock yourself up every night at your house 😉
But since my life finally has become more relaxed I have time to think about my way of eating again.
