About Us

My name is Jose Botija and I started this page because of my love of food and traveling. My grand mothers came from Mexico and I really miss their cooking. I set out to search for some of the best and authentic recipes that remind me of their cooking.

My wife Laly is from the Dominican Republic and we have 2 sons ages 6 and 12. Winters we love the beach. Summers we are usually in Wisconsin camping with our golden doodle name Novo and our boys.

We will also be sharing some tips and tricks for kitchen gadgets and tools. We are multicultural latinos. We will post some or our other favorite from throughout Latin America.

If you have any questions and comments please feel free to reach out. You can fill out the contact for or email at JBotija@jbotija
