My friend Valerie keeps an amazing cooking blog called My Life in Food. It isn’t fancy — there are no textured wallpapers, custom designed banners, or even much photography — but this is why it’s extraordinary: every SINGLE ONE of her recipes is trustworthy.
Valerie’s taste is always elegant and leans towards healthy. She is fond of Latin and Asian cooking, and while the recipes vary in difficulty, they are all equally delicious.
I made her Chicken Veracruzana last week, and it was quite delish and very easy. Here’s what the results were:
Not bad, eh? And very easy to make — you basically layer ingredients in a Crock Pot and let it simmer away. I only wish we’d had some corn tortillas, like Valerie recommended. The corn flavor was essential for contrasting with the meaty chicken flavor. But we ate it up anyhow! Click on through for the recipe, and enjoy.
