Today our blog is celebrating its 1st year! Can you believe it? The year flew by and it feels like only yesterday I had a crazy idea to start a blog. My goal was to build an online presence to promote our future cookbook but never predicted our blog would take on a life of its own. We have met so many amazing people (online and in person) through this incredible journey.

On this very special day, we wish to thank our photographer, Jeanine. In all honesty our blog would not be what it is today without her amazing photography skills. She has been taking photos of our children and our family for years, and when she offered to be our cookbook photographer I was honored to say the least. Her offer is what gave me the push to ‘just do it’. Gracias Jeanine for the soulful images you continue to capture of our Mexican fare.

We’d also like to give all of you a virtual abrazo. Thank you for following and encouraging us. Your kind comments are always welcome as they enlighten our life and fuel our drive with positive energy and passion to keep sharing our recipes and stories.

Oh, and speaking of our cookbook. We plan to post some details about that in the near future.

Help us celebrate today with a look back at some great stuff that happened in our first year.
