Mexican bread

MexicanBread

 

I admit it; I am not a cook by any stretch of the imagination.

 

However, it is always fun to try things out. After all, a change in one’s routine is as good as a holiday (they say).

 

So, last night I set out to do something a little different. I made Mexican bread with my own hands… and what a success it has been! (It was almost as satisfying as a holiday… or at least a half-day off.)

 

This recipe is easy to follow.  There are no strange ingredients that are super hard to find. So if it’s your first attempt, you’ll be safe.  Plus, it’s really quick. Give it a try!
