I dedicate this book to three very amazing and wonderful woman in my life. My first to my beloved grandmother, Mama, Maria Zaldivar, It was she who instilled in me my passion for cooking. It is to her that I owe all that I learned on authentic Mexican Cooking.

The second to my precious loving mom, Celia Rosa, a great and incredible cook herself . Thank you for passing down to me all that you learned from Mama, your own creations and recipes from friends.

The third to my wonderful Mima, my dear sweet mother-in-law, Yolanda Esquivel, for teaching me all that I know on authentic Cuban and Spanish Cuisine .
Three truly inspiring women. I love you all.

Thank you with all my heart.

Thank you Peg I am so glad to share all of my families recipes with my JAP friends and members. I have always wanted to compile a collection of my Latino recipes and share them. I plan on doing another book in the near future. So many people now and in the past have asked me for authentic recipes. Well here is a chance to get them. I hope you enjoy the book on line or if you choose to order.
