It's the last day before Christmas. Is all your shopping done? Do you need to get anything at the last minute but just can't fit extra shopping into your schedule today? Here's a few things you can order online today for anyone on your list who is awesome enough to be a Mexican food lover. Just click on any image to be taken to its online order form:


Description: This magazine marries authentic Mexican cuisine with the practicality of weeknight necessity. The recipes are easy, quick, convenient, and make-ahead. For Mexican food-lovers, this magazine is filled with familiar tastes and unexpected delights.


I actually have this issue and will probably order the one above soon. It's a good beginning primer on Mexican cooking and food knowledge.

Yep, this is Gustavo Arellano's book. From Amazon's description: "When salsa overtook ketchup as this country's favorite condiment in the 1990s, America's century-long love affair with Mexican food reached yet another milestone. In seemingly every decade since the 1880s, America has tried new food trends from south of the border—chili, tamales, tacos, enchiladas, tequila, bacon-wrapped hot dogs, and so many more—loved them, and demanded the next great thing. As a result, Mexican food dominates American palates to the tune of billions of dollars in sales per year, from canned refried beans to frozen margaritas and ballpark nachos. It's a little-known history, one that's crept up on this country like your Mexican neighbors—and left us better for it."

I can also vouch for this cookbook. You might think that coming from Williams-Sonoma that it'd be too hoity-toity, but it's not. It does a great job of covering many authentic, regional specialties from all around Mexico and explaining the differences between the regions. And, hey, it just looks great.
