Dear Selena,

Just wanted to take some time out of my busy schedule to say few words and to see how are you doing from above. I know its been a while, but I want you to know that I still listen to you almost everyday or at least 5 days out of my week. From Pandora to my iMusic playlist on my phone, You are everywhere I go. & Yes I still watch the #selena movie at least every 3 months or so…. but what can I say my daughter Tiff and I love the movie.

There’s also plenty of great memories of you surrounding my head at the moment. One that really sticks to me is when I sang Bidi Bidi Bom Bom at a 5 De Mayo carnival in San Diego at the age of 9yrs old . I knew the song by heart and I wanted to use my new cowboy boots my mom bought me at the swap meet .That’s one of many memories I have since I was a little girl. Now 29yrs I still know the song by heart, but I don’t wear cowboy boots anymore lol. As you get older in life things and people change, but I think there’s certain things in life that remain in our hearts. Selena La Reina Del TexMex is one of them. No matter if the years go by your legacy and spirit still lives in our hearts. Or at least in my heart.

I also wanted to let you know that here in Los Angeles, Ca there will be a #Selenafangathering on your birthday April 16 at this gallery location call La Plaza De La Raza. Everyone is excited to gather and celebrate your birthday dear. Wished you can be here and see it in person, but I know wherever you are you will be here in spirit dancing Bidi Bidi Bom Bom  with us. Its my first time attending the gathering and I’m thrilled to see the whole event , I’ll make sure to post pics so that you can see the event.

OH! & I almost forgot to tell you I’m designing something very special for you to wear! Its probably the most beautiful piece I have ever designed, I have a feeling you will love it. I been working very hard to make this piece simply breathtaking for you & I hope you love it as much as I do. I been posting BTS pics and videos on my social media little by little & as soon as im done with the piece ill make sure I post a picture for you to see. The Gown is call “Como La Flor” inspired by your song. I made sure I used very unique and exquisite fabrics so that its stands out. About 80% of the work is all hand sewn and handcrafted and the rest is machine sewn. Its coming along great and I’m excited to display it at the Selena Fan Gathering next month. I’m a little nervous to have it on display, but this is for you and I’m proud of making something special for someone that means a lot to me.

Well….

I hope you find this letter fine. & remember that everything we do here for you is because of you. Until we meet again!.

Con Mucho Amor : Jessica Resendiz

P.S I also made this frame for you and to share with the world. I wanted to make something incorporating red roses, unique font, and your smile on this frame. The image of you is not mine so don’t worry I wont be making any merchandise out of it , due to respect and rights. Hope you like it ! ❤

Chilaquiles Full of Color

IMG_9511.JPG

Chilaquiles in full effect! :0

Earlier this morning i decided to make myself a little delicious breakfast using my Aunt Adela’s Colorful tortillas she made. & All from scratch! This past weekend i went to visit my parents and familia in San Diego , & nothing better then homemade dishes and tortillas a mano ( and colorful) gosssssh it was delicious.

So since i have plenty of tortillas left i decided to make chilaquiles verdes ( my special recipe) and share with you all the final results and of course the recipe. As pretty as it looks, believe ME! it was delicious. So heres what use to make these chilaquilles.

Chilaquilles Verdes

** 1-2 ppl servings **

  • 5-6 corn tortillas ( La Mission ect or from your local supermarket)
  • Slice the tortillas in strips or triangles like ( Pizza slices)
  • Heat up your pan in Medium and add cooking oil enough to fried the tortillas.
  • Put the slice of tortillas on the pan and fry them as crispy as you can.
  • After the tortillas are crispy and cooked take them out and place them on a plate to clean up the oil. Let them sit there until they are dry for 2-5 min.
  • Using the same cooking oil from the tortillas i cracked 2 eggs (sunny side style)
  • After place the eggs on a different plate
  • Now using the same pan, CLEAN out the oil and all the leftovers.
  • For the sauce i either make my own or use ( Hernez chile verde sauce) it works perfect.
  • Pour it on the pan and let it sit there and heat up for 1-2 min ( or as desire)
  • After its heat up place the crispy tortillas on the chile verde sauce and stir for 1 min.
  • & Tada!
  • Ready to serve.
  • Place chilaquilles on a plate add the sunny side eggs on top
  • I like mine with ( Queso fresco , Avocado, & slices of chile on top) You can also add sour cream for more flavor!.
  • Hope this helps and please ENJOY!!!

Mariscos Heaven! Oh Cielos

sfsdf

Ugh!! Doesn’t this look marvelous and delicioso ! Mariscos with Tortillas Rositas (in pink tortillas). For anyone that truly knows me, knows how I feel towards food. The smell, the taste and of course presentation is what always intrigues me. And when I’m not designing ,then im cooking from Mexican food to Italian food. I love cooking and inventing new dishes as much as I can , & NO! im not trying to be chef I just LOVE the whole experience of cooking new plates and eating . Eating and trying different type of foods are a must. Not only I enjoy eating, but cooking helps me to distress from my job and business at @raggedytiff. It helps me to soothe down and relax to a better me.

Anyways! just thought I would share a little bit of Mariscos and my love for food. I happen to follow this this food page call#portobuzios on IG and Facebook . Check them out for great dishes and savory food pics. Super sad they are located in Queretaro, Mexico (my hometown ) but it doesn’t hurt to support their page.

Love: Jess.R ❤

The most Exquisite, Beautiful, & One of a kind restaurant ive ever seen. The Colors, the setting, the décor , OMG & their food! its simply amazing !. & not saying this because they are too kind, but its the honest truth. Because of my schedule, I haven’t had the opportunity to visit the restaurant, but it was definitely on my bucket list. They also have daily Musicos playing beautiful musica for their guest. Definitely worth a trip to experience and eat a great authentic dish. Todo stilo Oaxaqueno!!!.

The Ladies Creators and Hosts of SuperMamas are Bricia & Paulina both sisters and great on what they do, they definitely made me & my daughter feel at home.
