    Eva Longoria made the greatest tacos on Martha today. They looked delicious.

    I love Eva’s book. Great recipes.

    I am currently watching the episode about taco night. That is not how you make carnitas. I am Mexican American, You do not boil the pork.

    Loved today’s show–especially the pork. From Santa Fe, NM. In NM and Arizona, we cook cactus in many ways. Yucca, a favorite, but it is pronounced YUKA NOT Uka

    What’s with all these alcoholic drinks?? This is a morning cooking show. I don’t understand it. Keep to cooking.
    I love Eva’s tacos also.

    @ Steven…Sooo…How would YOU make Carnitas?
    @ Stacey…What does it matter?

    Either Lizzie has much free time on her hands, or she is associated with the show. I’ll go with the latter. Steven you are correct, and you don’t need to explain yourself and give the recipe here. Also, there is quite a bit of “drink” recipes on the show. They seem to be quick fillers on the show. It’s just observations.

    Folks: This method for making carnita’s is in fact one of the traditonal methods which was learned in Jalisco, Mexico. Once the water evaporates and the pork is tender, the meat browns in its own fat until carmelized and crispy. I’m sure there are many ways folks achieve this other than my recipe. Whatever the case may be–this is delicous pork. If you have another recipe I’d love to try it.
    Best, LSQ
    P.S. As for the drinks–there is something for everyone on this show

    I’m surprised to see so many negative comments here. I just discovered the show and love it. As for cocktail recipes in a “morning” show, people can watch the show at many different times of day. It’s called Tivo, DVR, etc. Welcome to the 21st century. I appreciate the completeness of the presentations. Keep coming with the deliciousness, LSQ.

    This is how I always make my Carnitas. I learned it 15 years ago from a Mexican woman.

  • Carrie August 24, 2011 at 4:14 pm

    Does MJ work for the show? What’s with the sarcasm? Sarcasm is the biggest form of negativity. Nothing wrong with a viewer commenting that they prefer the cooking recipes than the cocktail recipes. Lighten up. Don’t add to the negativity of others. We all know Lucinda does a great job.
