Muchas gracias para Muy Bueno!! Sept. 26 2012
By Megan Johnson - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I pre-ordered Muy Bueno about a month ago after reading the glowing review from Roberto Santibanez, my favorite Mexican chef. I received it yesterday. I have actually never even seen these ladies' cooking blog before, but right off the bat, I read this cookbook from cover to cover. The photographs are beautiful, and the writing is actually worth reading!

In the beginning, the book explains to you that the recipes are contributed by 3 generations of women. A grandmother, mother, and 2 daughters. You can tell who submitted each recipe to the book because there is an icon with each recipe, and every recipe has a little story in the beginning that tells you how it is important to their family culture/tradition. I found the entire cookbook to be utterly heart warming. I feel that every recipe included is approachable, even to the novice cook, and without ingredients that would be difficult to find. I also think it's worth noting that I have about 5 other Mexican cookbooks, but I still know that I will be cooking heavily out of this book.

Some things I just can't wait to try:

Bacon-wrapped shrimp with jalapeno
Corn in a cup (sort of like Mexican creamed corn, yum!)
Mexican shrimp cocktail (one of the best looking recipes I've seen for this)

Albondigas (Mexican meatball soup...I've been wanting to try a new recipe for this!)
Homemade chicken soup (the picture looks absolutely delicious)
Pozole rojo (Red pork and hominy stew)

Chicken tinga
Chipotle shredded pork enchiladas (stacked, not fun!)
Beef tongue with tomato (No recipe has ever made me want to cook lengua before)
Chile rellenos topped with ranchero sauce (an old fave)
Cheese and shrimp stuffed poblanos (How could that not be good?)
Chilaquiles rojos (classic Mexican breakfast)

Churros with Mexican chocolate dipping sauce (omg.)
Bunuelos (fried tortillas with cinnamon and sugar)
Coconut milk tres leches cake (WHAT?!)

I am so happy I purchased this cookbook! I will definitely be making all those recipes listed above, and more. I'm pretty sad that my boyfriend wanted pork chops tonight, because it means I won't be able to get started on one of these recipes right away.

This book is worth the buy!!! Sept. 21 2012

I have been a faithful follower of the Muy Bueno Cookbook blog for over a year now, and have already tried many of their recipes! Their chicken tinga is smoky hot and flavorful. Tacos al pastor is a sweet and spicy blend of yumminess! The pumpkin empanadas and champurrado make excellent autumn and winter treats! I can't WAIT to receive the full cookbook that will have so many more recipes. The pictures, the stories, the love, the recipes - this cookbook is a must have!

BEST Cookbook! Sept. 29 2012
By Christine - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Muy Bueno cookbook WELL exceeds beyond my expectations!!! I don't know what to make first, menudo or the coconut milk cake. Their green chile with beef and potatoes and their red chile sauce recipes bring back fond memories of my mother's cooking. I love their beautiful colorful photos. This is definitely my all time favorite Mexican cookbook, their recipes are meals I grew up with. Muchas gracias Vangie, Veronica y Yvette!!!

Easy Recipes Nov. 14 2012
By DianaA - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
One of the authors is a friend I have grown up with. Personally knowing their history, I was super excited to begin trying out the recipes in this cookbook. I cannot tell you how easy the directions are to follow but also tell you that the food comes out delicious. My family has been so happy in eating everything that I have made and are amazed at how well I have been doing. It has been great to copy and create the same recipes that my grandma or my mother makes. This book makes it very easy for me. Thank you for putting down on paper the traditional mexican dishes that I have grown up with! And this is quoted from my dad "Haber cuando hacen otro libro para que te lo compre y siques cocinando!" Lol, he is so funny, he wants to buy me your next book. I highly recommend it! Super easy and everyone will be amazed that you can do this yourself :)

LOVE LOVE LOVE this cookbook! May 28 2013
By Morgan - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I first borrowed Muy Bueno from a friend and when I realized there were too many recipes I wanted to try had to purchase my own! My boyfriend is from California and grew up eating this type of food and has recently moved out to the east coast and he was disappointed every meal we ate out Mexican. Only thing Mexican style I could make before this cookbook was tacos! Recipes are super easy to follow and now I can make anything his belly wants! We especially love the enchiladas! The recipes taste good, present well, and have satisfied his craving of authentic Mexican foods from his home! Ive learned a lot from this book and enjoyed the story in the beginning. If you love authentic Mexican meals these ladies did it right, and you need this book in your collection!!
