"I've always enjoyed cooking. This cookbook is full of cherished food gifts I'd like to pass on to family, friends, and to those of you wanting to learn to make these traditional South Texas dishes before they are lost forever. Recipes with great sentimental value of dishes that my grandmother and family prepared for our many wonderful celebrations. Some dishes have been secret family treasures that I now share with you all!" Connie G. Palacios
Connie Guerrero Palacios is a South Texas native who resides in Hebbronville, Texas. Raised by her maternal grandparents in a neighboring town, Bruni, Tx, she spent quality time learning and appreciating family recipes that had, and continue to this day, bring so much joy to the people sharing these authentic home-cooked meals. Over the years, her immediate family expanded from being the eldest of five (three brothers; Servando Jr, Rene, Juan, and one sister, Erika) to gaining two half siblings (one brother, Roberto and sister, Lissa) and three stepbrothers; Lionel, Domingo, and Joe. Keeping family values and recipes close, her long standing dream was to publish a cookbook full of family pride, with intentions of sharing joy and love with other families. Life is a daily challenge that allows us to grow as we go. You never know what great things may arise from one day to the next. One must keep the Faith, then share it in the best form possible to anyone who will listen and read.
