Cooking In the Jungle

A Food Blog From A

Costa Rican Hideaway

With Deby

I made the Rice last night with Chiles Rellenos and some red sauce. I'll start with the rice.

I use Tio Pelon Rice, not sure why, but I pick the blue bag that says 80 0/0. Witch is funny 

because it turns out about 98 0/0 of the time. Or maybe Tio Pelon is saying it's 80...

ABOUT ME

I'm jumping in. I'm not your mother's blogger, oh wait I am. So I thought at 67 I know a little about cooking and baking. I am ready to share my sweet life here in the jungle of Costa Rica. My home away from home. My outside cooking area, eating area, living area. The "rancho" as it's called here in Costa Rica. I live here with my surfer husband of 44 years. We are retired  from California, born and raised.  I cook quite often. If I get bored, I bake and then try to give my goods away. I also sell baked goods to some cafes and folks around here. We really don't need to eat all that sugar.

 

I learned to cook from my husband's Grandma, Marie, who was from Italy. So of course I love to make Italian food and we love Mexican food also. But I will try to cook anything.  Everything I make has a piece of Grandma Marie in it.  More about her later.
