About the Author
Yvette Marquez-Sharpnack is a food blogger, recipe developer and author. Born and raised in El Paso, Texas, she lives in the beautiful state of Colorado with her husband and two children. She draws her culinary inspiration from her late grandmother's old-world northern Mexican recipes, her mother's El Paso home cooking, her favorite childhood dishes, and her travel adventures in Mexico. Yvette combined her passion for Mexican food with her graphic design talent to create to catalog her family's recipes.

Though she writes primarily about her culinary adventures on her award-winning blog, Muy Bueno, she also is a professional recipe developer, on-camera host, and is the co-author of "Muy Bueno: Three Generations of Authentic Mexican Flavor" and "Latin Twist: Traditional and Modern Cocktails". You can find Yvette online at http: // and follow her on Instagram and Twitter @muybuenocooking.
