After coming from a trip and eating out a lot, it's really enjoyable to stay in and enjoy a high quality meal at home. One of my mom's signature dishes is her paella. I totally believe I'm not saying this because she's my mom, but I think she's got one of the best paella's out there. We've tried so many across Spain and the U.S., and they don't come close. Not even Jose Andres's paella is as good as my mom's. It's a bold statement, but I stand by it. Perhaps Chef Andres should accept my BFF invitation (and BFF invitation, part 2) and try out my mom's paella!
