    Hola, stumbled across you while in the middle of a margarita craving. I am a transplanted Texan currently living in New York. I get home ( Galveston ) as often as I can. Just can’t get enough of texas , was excited to find your blog. Will be stopping in regularly :)

  2. Hello – I found you on Pinterest while looking for the charro beans we love while living in Weslaco TX each winter. Your recipe is cooking away right now. Thanks so much!

  3. I found your blog while searching for Margarita recipes. I also love margaritas. I have volunteered at Holt Family Birth Center in Weslaco as a midwife twice for 3 months at a time and so am very familiar with the area where you live. My aunt also lives in the RGV – a snowbird who converted to a resident. I am looking forward to trying the recipes you post although believe it or not, it is hard to find ingredients for Mexican food here in Costa Rica. I am also a big fam of Rick Bayless and Laylita. Now I am going to make a pineapple margarita before i start making my banana bread.

    • Thank you for stopping Vicky. I adore margaritas and am always researching new flavro combos. Feel free to look around and hope you enjoy the pineapple margarita!

  4. Okay, I just saw YOUR watermelon margarita. It looks great, but I would love to talk you into trying a frozen version…. say, mid July when Texas is on fire. :)
