Today got me thinking about one of my favorite Mexican cookbooks which is Mexican Everyday by Rick Bayless. I love Mexican food and his recipes have such great flavor. One other reason I like this book is after each recipe he has a paragraph of riffs, giving you more options. Out of the list of ingredients he gives you substitutions for certain food items in case you don't like one of his ingredients or he gives you a little variation on how to cook it. It gets you thinking about his recipes in a variety of ways and makes it a lot more interesting to cook.
