The "21 Traditional Recipes" in this volume range from very easy to easy, with only a couple that are slightly more difficult. The recipes are traditional Mexican food as commonly prepared in Southern Arizona.

There is a little taste of everything from my own "Homemade Tacos" to "Spicy Enchiladas Verdes" from a small town in Mexico to "Creamy Margaritas" and "Flan" (a very tasty traditional dessert.

This is the only ethnic cookbook of the series, but I had to include it. Mexican food was an integral part of my youth and was the only "eating out" experience I knew until I left my small hometown in Southern Arizona to attend college.

In our little community, there were two restaurants, The Star Café, and Shorty's Mexican Food Café. My girlfriends and I ate at Shorty's once or twice a week from the time we could drive until we parted ways after high school graduation. Those were the days when you could buy a full meal and a coke for under a $1.00.

Mexican Food has always been and will always be very high on my list of favorite foods when it is the real thing, not Tex-Mex or mildly flavored wannabe imitations. Unfortunately, authentic Mexican food is sometimes hard to find. That is the main reason I learned to make it myself and wanted to share these recipes with you.

I hope you and your family enjoy the recipes as much as I enjoyed compiling them for you.

All things beautiful are my passion. I enjoy anything that a masterful hand creates. Writing is one of those and cooking is another. They both captured my interest and imagination at a very young age. The "Mama's Legacy Series" was a pleasure to create because it allowed me to tap into my interests and to publish cookbooks that my audience can use and enjoy time and time again.I began my love affair with cooking when I was very young. As soon as I could reach the counter top my mother gave me free reign in the kitchen. I was allowed to mix and mix and mix, building my masterpieces. They were nothing more that wild combinations of flour, sugar, spices and water; but, to me it was creating at its best. When I finished with each endeavor, I tossed it all and happily cleaned up the kitchen, looking forward to the next time. My creative spirit in the kitchen had taken root.My first adventure in writing came my senior year in high school when I decided to take a writing correspondence course, which was very forward looking for the time. I experienced the first thrill of putting pen to paper, and all these years later it is still one of the most pleasurable activities in my life. If I had my druthers, I would write all the time. In fact, that is pretty much what I do because I have reached a point in my life where it is now possible. In addition to the "Mama Legacy Cookbook Series" I have two other cookbooks, "Cake Making Made Easy" and "Candy Making Made Easy." They are not only cookbooks; they provide detailed instructions on how to make cakes and candy. The cake book includes 60 delicious cake recipes and the candy book includes 17 starter recipes so the instructions can be applied immediately. I loved writing both instruction books, especially the candy book, because it brought back so many wonderful memories of candy-making with my family on those long summer nights when I was a young girl.
