Each year we celebrate Cinco de Mayo in honor of my husband Dennis' maternal grandmother, Elise Conde, who came to this country from Sonora, Mexico. Dennis' mother, Marquita Pearman, has wonderful stories to tell of her mother's sense of humor and her love for playing the guitar. She died at the young age of 49 from uterine cancer, so Dennis did not have the pleasure of knowing her. Dennis is an amazing cook and makes a dish called "Puerco Pibil", or slow-roasted pork. We got the recipe from the movie "Once Upon A Time In Mexico", Robert Rodriguez, producer and director of the movie, and his version of this amazing dish...try it, you'll love it! Here you'll find the recipe in written form, can't seem to make it link though...I guess copy and paste into your google bar.

- I am a self-employed knitter/designer and photographer. I strive to write unique designs inspired by nature, folklore, magic, Fairies and Elves, and I find a lot of inspiration from symbolism and traditions in cultures throughout history. I also love to photograph nature on an intimate level. As a Master Gardener I raise garden starts each spring to sell locally, and I am also a soap maker and musician. I can be found at our local Dexter Lake Farmer's and Crafter's Market on Sundays from May thru October selling my knitting patterns and hand knit items, as well as hand crafted soap, macro-photography from the garden, and tomato and pepper starts for your garden. You can find me on Ravelry as Peargirl and our band The Pears can be found on Reverbnation.
