My Passion

I love to cook!  When I am in the kitchen preparing a meal, I feel as if I'm creating a masterpiece.

Cooking relaxes me.

Cooking inspires me.

I haven't received any formal training.  Many of the Mexican dishes I prepare are ones that my grandparents made for me when I was a child.  Others, I have learned from my mother-in-law.  But most of my recipes are my version of some of my favorite foods.

Living in a small town in Mexico, where convenience foods aren't readily available, I have learned to make just about everything from scratch.

Join me on this journey, as I share recipes from my kitchen in the heart of Mexico.

With Love,
Leslie Limon


  1. I hope you show the recipe to making tamales. I always wanted to learn how to make this.

  2. I would like to thank you for your wonderful website. I have a passion for cooking as well, and Mexican foods are my favorite! I am just learning how to cook them more authentically, and I look up recipes often when I can find the time. I stumbled upon your website a couple of days ago and I have been looking over it and over it and I am in love. My goal will be to make all of your recipes as soon as humanly possible!! My boyfriend also thanks you, he is from Laredo he is absolutely ecstatic, as he dearly has missed these foods. You are awesome! Keep em' coming! Thank you so much.
