I have safely returned from Oaxaca, land of the seven moles! (That's the chocolate and chile sauce, not the burrowing animal.) I had a wonderful time and I hope you enjoyed learning more about the food, culture, and craziness that is Mexico. I apologize for the hiatus while I was recovering from my illness; I simply wasn't able to write during that time. I'm feeling MUCH better now, however, and will now return you to your regularly scheduled mixing it up!
