Happy Tuesday, everyone!

Hope y’all enjoyed your weekends. Mine was pretty chill. Visited a friend and had a yummy bowl of menudo at a popular Mexican restaurant that’s kind of a local institution. Menudo is one of those things I don’t usually cook because it’s so labor and time intensive, and not everyone in the family cares for it, but I LOVE it with lots of lime, fresh chilies, tons of cilantro and several healthy shakes of Tapatío.


But I digress….

I almost always play music while I’m cooking because it makes cooking all the more enjoyable for me. And if I’m having an especially leisurely cooking session, then a glass of wine to go with it for sure.

I mostly listen to a lot of instrumental nuevo flamenco and jazz when I’m cooking. They usually put me in a good culinary creative zone. Gipsy Kings, Jesse Cook, Vicente Amigo, Bill Evans, Chet Baker, Eddie Higgins Trio, Vince Guaraldi… The list goes on!

Every once in a while, I stream my 80s list, which is higher energy and just fun nostalgia.

I love how music infuses my cooking with energy and inspiration!


Can’t wait to hear what everyone listens to while cooking!

Wishing you a musically inspired week in the kitchen,
