I've tried a couple of recipes and so far and they've been delicious! Thank you for sharing your family recipes!"
Your book is awesome. I brought it to my in-laws house today and they were impressed. My husband and his family came to the US from El Salvador in 1980. His mom cooks everything from scratch, much of what is in your book. Anyway, I am going to your site to order 2 more books, one for each of my sister-in-laws. They don't want a gringa cooking their food better than them. lol!! I can't wait to have them over and make one of your delicious soups to impress them. I try looking for recipes online, but you are the only one who sticks to the authenticity of Salvadoran cooking. I eventually want to past these down to my daughter. I love practicing you recipes. My husband loves everything!!
From a Facebook Fan. Thanks for the book!!

Thank you for making this book!
Book was packaged very well due to not being a hardcover. I've only made one recipe. The illustrations are just beautiful (my friend was born in El Salvador and he thought the illustrations and recipes are great). I look forward to try more recipes soon.
I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for some really good tasting cuisine. Whenever I get a chance I try a new recipe and I like them each and every time.
