  1. Hello, I tried to click on the recipe for the champurrado, it says the link has been deactivated? I would love to have it, everything I have made from this website has turned out delicious! :) thank you!

    1. Hello, Sorry for the late reply. The champurrado recipe is posted in one of my blogger friends website. Somehow, her website was not active for some days in May. But, it is up an running now.


  2. LOVE LOVE LOVE (!!!) your site!! Gracias!

    1. Thanks! I hope you have lots of fun cooking!

  3. Hello. I am half Mexican. My mother side of the family is from Zacatecas. Growing up I never really got into the kitchen to learn any of our family recipes. I am now wishing that I could have learned to carry on those traditions from past generations. I live far away from my aunts and grandmother. Whenever I call to get a recipe and try to make it, it never turns out so great. I am excited to start making something from your website. The pictures really help too. I can't wait to tell my grandmother what I have learned and how great it came out! Excited to cook!

    1. Hello,

      So good for you to try to recreate the meals of your childhood. I hope you find inspiration to create wonderful meals with these recipes.


  4. Lots of Love from Canada!!!!!!!!!
