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 loving sweet Mom, Celia Rosa, a great cook herself . Thank you for passing down to me all that you learned from Mama above and your friends .

The third to my dear and wonderful Mima, my mother-in-law, Yolanda Esquivel, for teaching me all that I know on authentic Cuban and Spanish Cuisine

Thank you with all my heart.

Hi dear ladies Kim, Christine, Bonnie, Karla and Ali. By chance I saw a message from Ali today and just realized that you could receive messages on your book, which I never knew. I never went down any further on the page. I did not ever see the messages. Please forgive my stupidity. Thank you all for the great comments. I am glad you liked my book. I plan on doing another one soon I just want to make sure I have all the pictures posted to all of the recipes. Thanks again. Merry Christmas to all and a very Happy New Year. LOL
