Our Favorite Ice Cream in México

When we travel in México we always keep our eyes out for Tepoznieves, our favorite ice cream store. Founded in the beautiful town of Tepoztlán, Morelos, there are outlets in many places in México.   They are well known for their interesting flavors of ice cream, but also their aguas – waters – that are my preference.  In the picture above you’ll see my guanábana agua on the left and I think Paul had tres leches.

We had fun...

I know I mentioned before that we have a weekly organic market here in town.  Every Saturday until the end of May in the Plazuela Zaragoza from 8 am until noon you will find at the latest count about a dozen vendors selling their most excellent organic and homemade items.  You can read the M! Magazine article about the market/a> or if you’re on Facebook, like their Facebook page. This week I came home with such great stuff!  Organic almond...
