I’m moving to My Baja Kitchen

I am slowing moving What’s for Dinner Doc to www.MyBajaKitchen.com. I hope you’ll join me at the new location and subscribe via email so you don’t miss any part of this adventure in the Baja.

Take a walk with me around the neighborhood. Loreto Bay, Nopolo, BCS, Mexico.


The new site will focus on more traditional recipes from Baja Mexico with a healthy twist and a Mediterrean flare. It occurred to me while living in Mexico between the desert and the Sea of Cortez that the climate and foods grown there are very similar to the Mediterranean. We have evidence that a diet rich in seafood, fish, legumes, vegetables, fruits and olive oil is a healthy alternative to the SAD, Standard American Diet. Unfortunately, Mexicans are now suffering from the SAD  as well. Mexico, with her close ties to the U.S. has seen a marked increase in childhood obesity, diabetes and heart disease.  I believe that Baja cuisine can improve on traditional culinary themes by using fresh local produce, healthy fats and the abundance of seafood.

And you know that there will be stories to tell as I stumble through life in Mexico with my terrible EspaΓ±ol and my grand ideas about healthy living.

As many of you who have moved your blogs to WordPress.org know, it’s sometimes a painful transition. I have to reestablish my blog relationships, learn new programming skills, and find the time to create new amazing recipes. I will be moving recipes and some photos from here to there but I plan to improve the recipes and their presentation. There is a cookbook in the works as well and I hope you will share your hits and misses with any recipe I post.

PLEASE COMMENT. I welcome any and all criticism in My Baja Kitchen.

Grab an apron and follow me to my Baja kitchen.

  1. I love the photos, so much colour!
    I haven’t heard of the term SAD before but it sounds very fitting isn’t it?? It wreaks its damage everywhere, I’ve seen it in the Middle East too πŸ˜•

    1. I see what the kids eat in Mexico and I’m appalled and their poor little bodies show the damage already.

    1. Ugh, WP.com makes commenting so easy. I tried a new comment app but grrrrrrrr. Long list of frustrations but I’m learning every day. Which comment widget do you use?

      1. I’m not even sure which comment widget I use….A couple years ago I transitioned from wordpress.com to wordpress.org but my brother helped me with some of the technical aspects. It was pretty difficult for a bit, to get things sorted out. I really like wordpress though. Good luck!!
