People are talking...

You know I sent out a few of my cookbooks earlier this month - to the MBFCF 2-Year Blogiversary Winners and of course, to my darling Desi Arnaz, Jr. (sigh). 

This is what the recipients had to say about My Big, Fat, Cuban Family Cookbook:


Hi Marta,
The cookbook arrived this morning! I am so excited! It is gorgeous. I love all the photos and the family stories. You have such a lovely family. I can't wait to try some of the recipes.



Wow! Great job on the book Marta! It is AMAZING, I'm not kidding you. The stories that segue into the recipes...the recipes themselves...some oldies but goodies and some I never woulda thought of like the guayaba and cream cheese torrejas??? What kind of genius came up with THAT one?? By the way, the day I received the book, I was boiling a can of condensed milk to make dulce de leche and I fell asleep and about an hour an a half later...BOOM! Racka, racka, racka, hissssss, hissssss.....(Mind you I thought my daughter had gotten home in a bad mood and kept sleeping) and then the horrific smell of smoke and burnt dulce de leche...ayayay...anyway, a few hours of cleaning later I sit down to read your book and there is another genius idea of CROCKPOTTING your condensed milk...nope, not me, I go the "blow up the house" route instead. Anyway, thank you so much for taking me down memory, early exilio lane and for picking me to win your book. Believe it or not, I was hoping for the apron, but this is SO much better...thanks Marta, your da bomb!

By the way, any ideas on how to get dulce de leche off of my popcorn ceiling:/ ?

A celebration of Cu...
