The inspiration for Lola’s Cocina came about over ten years ago when I realized that treasured family recipes, some dating back many generations, must not only be experienced through our taste buds, but also preserved in writing. This is when I began to jot down recipes that I learned from family and friends, created myself, or stumbled upon serendipitously.
Upon completion of my graduate studies, I have dedicated much of my time to cooking, testing, and
organizing these recipes to share with you and future generations.
Lola’s Cocina includes links to:
- Recipes: Compilation of nearly 100 of my favorite recipes (and the list continues to grow) with a Recipe of the Week highlighted on the Homepage
- Cooking in Mexico: Insights into the amazing cooking schools where I conducted my thesis research and learned new dishes
- Comadres Corner: Forum for food enthusiasts to share recipes, suggestions, kitchen tips, or address specific recipe-related questions or cooking concerns
- Tres del Mes: Monthly roundup of three quick tips, suggestions, recipes, or other ideas related to Mexican food culture
