Gringo Living Here on the Beach in Baja, Mexico...

Hello all - Just a dumb Gringo living here in Baja, Mexico and I love to cook. In fact I met my wife in a cooking class here a few years back. I have lived and worked in many places including Argentina, Venezuela, Singapore, Sumatra and now Mexico. I LOVE THIS PLACE and I am staying. I have come up with some easy and quick recipes for Mexican food that are tasty and as spicy as you want to make them.

I also make a great Cadillac Margarita that goes perfect with some Salsa, Ceviche and Baja Fried Rice. I really am looking forward to getting to know folks here, participate and learn some new things along the way.

Saludos!

Ron

Welcome to Dc. You should talk to Pds. She's in Mexico all the time or so it seems.

You're welcome. I am glad that you like them and I will be adding more. I just got that webpage up and so there will be more recipes added as well as categories.

I keep telling my wife what a lucky woman she is - haha...

Hola, BajaGringo! Bienvenidos a Discuss Cooking. My hubby and I also live in Mexico, but a bit farther south and east - we are in Nayarit, just north of Puerto Vallarta. I look forward to learning more about your great cooking, and already plan to make the wonderful salad I found on your website. This is a great group of people - muy amable. Buena suerte....

BG, I looked over my detailed map of Nayarit and did not figure out where Bonito is, but there are so many little pueblos...is it near the ocean or the mountains?

Thanks again for the welcome guys - you all are great! As I work online I spend a lot of time in the forums and I can see already that there are some of you who share a similar (sick, twisted, perverted, demented, rosy, happy, archaic, fuddy-duddy, dazed, haven't a clue) view of life and attitude.

Obviously I will spending much of my time here - ha!



Karen - Bonito is a very small pueblo inland...
