One of our favorite blogs is written by Mely Martinez original from Taumalipas and now residing in the U.S. Mely’s recipes bring back fond memories. Many come from Northern Mexico where I first learned to cook Mexican food. Try the Nuevo Leon style pork stew or the Mexican style beef tips for a taste of the North. Mely has been very generous with us sharing our recipes on her social media accounts. Much appreciated!
