Cinco de Mayo Round-Up

Cinco de Mayo and St. Patrick's Day have one thing in common. While both are celebrated in the United States, they are not major holidays in their countries of origin. Cinco de Mayo is a holiday that commemorates the battle of Puebla, a fight in which Mexican troops were victorious over French forces, and that's really important — if you live in Puebla or love an excuse for a party. I'm a party girl, so tomorrow this Irish lass will be setting a colorful table and serving Mexican inspired food to commemorate the day. I hope this round-up of Mexican inspired recipes will give like-minded souls some ideas for their own fiestas.

I'm ashamed to admit that I didn't even hear of Cinco de Mayo until I was well into my twenties . . . when I learned it was a great excuse for a party, a party with great food. Beergarita, anyone?

I was interested in your Crema, it looks like a wonderful sauce to keep on hand. I have never heard of anything made this way.
