February Charm City Cookbooking: Diana Kennedy

February 25, 2010 at 10:40 pm | Posted in Cookbooks, Dinner | 7 Comments

So I hosted this month, and surprise surprise- I chose Mexican again!!! I really wanted a reason to make tamales from scratch and so I found this book of Diana’s that had a bunch of tamale recipes and a lot of good solid Mexican cooking knowledge! I put some of her tamale expertise to use, but really I took the recipe from abuelita. πŸ˜€ She bought me a bunch of things I would need at the Mexican market and then I put them to use on Saturday night and what resulted?? Only the best tamales abuelita has had in a long time!!! Go me!!!


Here is a shot of some of my tamales, they were awesome (and I don’t care one bit how much I am bragging about it!) They took about 3 hours to make from start to finish and I can’t wait until I have another big get together so I can make them for the rest of my friends!! Now go over to our CBC blogsite and see the rest of our great Mexican fare.

  1. Elizabeth, looks like y’all had quite the feast. Homemade tamales? You rock.

    • Thank you Wendi!!!

  2. I love…love…homemade tamales! I’m thinking the next blogger get together, you should definitely make these bad boys!!

    • That might be possible!!!

  3. Go right ahead and brag, your tamales were excellent! And I think having a food blogger tamalada is a great idea.

  4. Liz – those look amazing!!!

  5. Those look great! I actually just came home from the market with masa in hand intent on making tamales. Now I just have to decide which flavor!

Leave me something sweet!
