This website is nothing more than an online archive of recipes that I intend to revisit throughout my life. This is why I call it a "Food Journal", as opposed to a "Food Blog". Many of these recipes are my own, but at the bottom of each post is a reference to any blog or article that I may have used, when applicable.


To be honest, I find many food blogs overwhelming. It's a lot of information jammed into one page, and it takes me so long to scroll through it all just to get to the actual recipe. A lot of food blogs make my browser crash (whether on my phone or computer) with all of the images and side-panel ads that are loading at once. Did I mention how long it takes just to scroll through the essay written about the meal? I don't want any of that here. For the most part, my goal is to keep my recipes as brief and straight-to-the-point as possible.

I am health conscious, and my taste in food is simple and homey. That gives room for variety, somewhere! I hope to project that with everything documented here. I do my best to be as clear and simple as possible with any instructions. I only hope that, should you try anything, you enjoy the flavor just as much as I do.

As a mere member of my household, not all of the recipes here are my own. This archive also contains meals provided by my husband, who has a taste and style of his own.

Thank you for visiting!

Thyme Is Tight


Food has always played a large role in my life. I grew up in Mexico, where food is at the center of holidays, traditions, and just every day family interaction at the dinner table. In the U.S., food became both a connection to my old country, and a way to explore a new home.

I believe that food should be warm and inviting, a labor of love and creativity. No, I don't think you need a trigonometry degree nor test tubes and a thousand different appliances to cook. Especially quesadilla makers (seriously, quesadilla makers are the dumbest thing ever). I grew up in an environment where we mostly made do with what we had, and that is reflected in my cooking.

I hope I can show you that cooking can be fun, simple, and something that doesn't have to break the bank.
