My Review:

Really liked how the chapters are broken up:

1.  Appetizers
2.  Sides
3.  Mains
4.  Desserts and Drinks

The recipes are really easy to understand and really liked to see a picture of the finished product.  Three easy steps to follow and there were even some helpful notes.


Thanks Simon and Schuster Canada for sending me this Mexican cookbook to review, greatly appreciated!
